How do I show only active rows and columns in my reports?

To keep things less cluttered when you're looking at your reports, you can hide rows and columns with no activity or a total amount of zero. This ability is only available for some reports.

Note: This does not  apply to payroll reports.


To show only active rows and columns:

  1. At the top of the report, select the Show non-zero or active only drop-down. If you don't see Show non-zero or active only, it isn't an option for that report.
  2. Choose which rows or columns to show:
    • Active: Hide empty rows and columns.
    • All: Show all rows or columns.
    • Non-zero: Hide rows and columns with a total of zero.
  3. Select Run report.

That's it. Now you know how to show only active rows and columns in your reports.
