I'm not able to get a 2018 General Ledger report for all transactions for 2018 - the report is stopping at 1/25/2018 but not reporting the whole year. Please advise
Due to QBO's limited data handling capability that will probably have to be done in date segments. Of course that may not help in the event of an IRS audit since they have stated that the actual software data file is what they want, and an excel spreadsheet is not satisfactory. (Note: simple start does not have a true general journal report at all.)
QBO data handling capability for reporting is not adequate, if there is more than 5K records it times out and reports that you have too much data. You will have to do a journal report in date range segments, like Jan-Feb, Mar-Apr, etc etc.
How many months you can span per report is a guessing game since the report can not deal with more than 5K transactions.
