Where do I input the dba on a 1099-MISC? I am using the online quick employer forms

I am using the Online TurboTax Quick Employer Forms.  I am trying to input information into a 1099MISC for a person who uses a dba.  I looked up online and it says to put the dba under the person's name, but there is not a spot that I see to do this on the Turbo Tax Online form.

If you are using the person's social security number then you should use their name versus their dba.  

If you are using an employer identification number (EIN), then you should use the name that is associated with the EIN.  This could be the name of the contractor or it could be the dba depending on what is on the IRS record.  You should check with the person/company to be sure.

The IRS specifically matches numbers against names associated with them.
