Re: I need to know how much I spend with a vendor

Thanks for joining the Intuit Community, Theresar.

Running the Purchases by Vendor Detail Report will show the gross amount spent to the vendor and the item as well. Let me show you how to open it.


  1. In your company file, go to the Reports tab and choose Purchases.
  2. Select Purchases by Vendor Detail.
  3. Click on the Customize Report tab to refine it.
  4. On the Display tab, go to the Columns section and select the following information: Item, Item Description, Qty, Name, and Cost Price.
  5. Click on OK.

I've attached screenshots for visual reference:

Here's an article with detailed instructions on how to personalize report: Customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop.

This report should provide the data you need. Let me know how this turns after following the steps. I'll jump right back in to help.
