My Profit and Loss by Customer is not working - how else can I determine what expenses relate to a particular customer?

Hi enquiries14,

 

What happened with you Profit & Loss report that it's not working?

 

You can run an Expenses By Supplier Summary Report to get the information you're looking for.

 

This will show you your total expenses for each supplier.

 

You can also try a Sales by Customer Detail report if you need the information pertaining to customers and not suppliers.

 

Hope this helps, come back if you need more assistance.

 

Kristian.

Hi Kristian, I don't think you have understood my problem.

I don't need supplier summary expenses or customer sales - I need to know what I have spent for a particular customer over many suppliers.

To get this information I run the P&L for customers and it lists each expense against each customer.

When I tried to do this, I got a pop up error message saying 'something went wrong, we are working on it'.

Anyway, I worked around it by reducing the dates of the report. This helped with one smaller customer but it won't work on jobs that last several months.

I appreciate you for providing an error message above to help me determine the root cause of this issue, @enquiries14

 

At times, stored cache on your browser might cause unusual behavior in QuickBooks Online (QBO). That's why the system prompts an error when you run the Profit and Loss by Customer report. Rest assured that I'll share the steps with you to help fix this. 

 

Let's start with opening QBO using an incognito window. It doesn't store data in the cache. Thus, it's a great way to isolate browser-related issues. Depending on the browser you're using, please follow these keyboard shortcuts: 

  • Google Chrome: CTRL + Shift + N
  • Safari: Command + Shift + N 
  • Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge: CTRL + Shift + P 

 

Once signed in, go back to the Reports menu and run the Profit and Loss by Customer report. If it works, clear the cache of your default browser. Doing so will remove the stored cache on the browser, so it will function effectively. Otherwise, please use a different browser

 

However, if the issue persists, I'd suggest contacting Customer Care Team. They can investigate your account why you're still receiving an error when running the report. They can also help you resolve it. Just go to the Help menu at the upper right. Then, select Contact Us to connect with a live support agent.

 

Once fixed, you can always customise the Profit and Loss by Customer report. This lets you get the information you need about your business. Just click the Customise button at the upper right of the report screen. 

 

After that, you can memorise the report to save it with its current customisation settings. It helps you quickly run the report in the future. This can be done by clicking Save customisation, so it'll be saved on your Custom reports tab. The screenshot below serves as your visual guide. To learn more about this process, visit this article: Memorise Reports
