GL account number length

Hello sillek,


Welcome aboard to the Community. It would be my pleasure to answer any questions you may have with adding account number in QuickBooks Desktop.


When adding account numbers through the Chart of Accounts, the maximum number of characters is seven digits. Right now, exceeding the limit in the QuickBooks is unavailable at this time.


For additional insight into the character limitations for the fields, such as account numbers, I'm adding an article that I recommend:


Character limitations for fields in QuickBooks.


For now, you can utilize the Description and Note fields for any data that you need for the account.


Keep in touch with me here should you have any additional questions or concerns with GL accounts. I want to make sure you're taken care of.
