Hi treasurer112,

 

I'm having a bit of trouble understanding exactly what you are referring to.

 

By 'Assign To' are you referring to the Category section within the banking tab?

 

I just want to clarify this before I give you any further advice in the hope that I don't give you the wrong advice!

 

Look forward to hearing from you.

 

Kristian.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, however I am not selling products & services, in the banking screen I recognise money into my bank account straight into the GL account. Is there a way I can display only the account name in the "Assign To" column, and not have the parent accounts displayed as well?

 

thanks

Hi Sarah,

 

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

 

When you are categorising transactions in the bank feed to a sub-account there is no way to only show the sub-account unfortunately.

 

The way QuickBooks works, is if you select a sub-account, it will display the parent account first and then the sub-account beside it in the Category section.

 

For example: ( Parent_Acc : Sub_Acc )

 

There is no way to adjust this at this present time.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Kristian.
