GENERAL LEDGER

When I pull a general ledger report, it is pulling it by description instead of account #.  How can I change this?

 

Many thanks!

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, @Brmckay1011.

 

When you save it's pulling by Description, are you referring to the account name? If so, it's possible that the Use account numbers option in the Preferences is unchecked. To verify this, follow these steps below:

 

1. Go to the Edit menu at the upper left.
2. Pick Accounting on the left pane.
3. Go to the Company Preferences tab.
4. Put a checkmark on the Use account number.
5. Hit OK.

Once done, go back to the General Ledger report and you should see the account number.

I'm also adding this article future resources: Understand QuickBooks Chart of Accounts.

 

That should point you in the right direction. Keep me posted on how everything goes or if you're referring to something else in the comment section. I'll be happy to help. Have a great weekend.
