There are at least two accounts in every transaction; usually a source account and one or more target accounts. Which account do you want?
Thank you for the detailed information and screenshot, @heckhelm.
I appreciate you following the steps above to get the right report showing the Account column. Allow me to join the conversation and share some insight regarding the Profit and Loss Detail Report.
At this time, adding Account as a column on the P&L Detail Report is unavailable. Since QuickBooks Online uses double entry accounting, there should be at least 2 accounts affected for every transaction.
You can find them under the Date and Split columns. To make it appear on the report, follow the steps provided by @Angelyn_T, except select those instead of Account.
For more in-depth information on this matter, check out this article: Customize your Profit and Loss report.
That should get you pointed in the right direction.

Thank you for the info Khim. What kind of report did Angelyn run to display the accounts column?
Jumping in to help you again, heckhelm.
Based on the screenshot shared by Angelyn, it's the Transaction List by Customer report.
