Thanks for your message but this is making no sense at all. I still have monies received into the bank account, corresponding to invoices raised but only some of them are being included in the Income amount on the Dashboard page, and only some are showing on the Sales report. It seems as though some are listed as "invoices" and some are listed as "sales" but I have no idea why or how to get them all to be in the same category.
Hoping someone can help me sort this out & thanks in advance!

Hi again & thanks again for responding. I've looked at the products and services and have changed them to read Gross Sales but it still hasn't fixed the problem in the P&L. When I go into the transaction report by clicking on the sales figure in the P&L summary, it lists a number of my invoices under Account as "Sales" and next to that under Split it has "Accounts Receivable" but only some of the transactions are there. The rest are lost in the ether somewhere! They're in the list of invoices but just don't show up on the P&L and I guess that's why the sales figure on the dashboard is also wrong. Thanks again!
