I can't get any reports to generate.

I would like to add that I just tried running reports on my own books for last year and can't get any types of reports to run.  When clicking on the Reports section in the left-hand pane, nothing happens.  Also when accessing any of the reports from the briefcase in the green menu bar at the top, nothing happens either.


It seems like going into a clients QBO file and then back to your own QBOA file then the reports become accessible.  I'm not sure if this is a bug but that's how I was able to get it to work for me.

Let’s resolve the error that you’ve encountered when running reports, @josie8


It's possible that piled-up cache in your regular browser caused this unusual behavior. You can clear your current browser’s cache to resolve this. 

Go to your account by using a private browser or an incognito window. If you can now run the report, clear the cache in the one that you're currently using.


Here’s how to go incognito or use a private browser:

  • For Chrome, press Ctrl+Shift+N.
  • For Internet Explorer or Firefox, press Ctrl+Shift+P.
  • For Safari, hold down Command+Shift+N

Then, follow the steps in the clearing temporary internet files and cache article. You can also try to proceed by using other browsers if the steps above don’t work.


Also, here’s more information on how to run reports in QuickBooks Online.

I cant get any reports to work.   Why?  I tried your help and the automated person came on.  When I asked for a rep the blue dots just moved and nothing else happened!  I am getting very angry!
