Re: Is there a way to add line number to the invoice item list?

Yes, you can do this, by Customizing your Invoice template. Go to Lists menu > Templates, edit that template, go to Additional Customization, the Header Tab. Enable the "other 1" column. Change its title to something, or simply delete the text, to remove having a Label on that column. You will need to fit this Inside the printing body, not on the margin like you show, but it doesn't have to be in the Box part. You use Layout Designer to grab the left border and drag it in. You use that Additional Customization, Columns tab to renumber the columns, so make Other 1 the position of #1.

 

Now you Number them on the screen as you enter data.

Once set up, you can now add numbers when creating an invoice in QuickBooks Desktop.

Re: Is there a way to add line number to the invoice item list?

Hello there, @EPANCHAM.

 

Thanks for joining us here in the Community and for providing a screenshot of your concern. I'm here to share some information about adding a line number to the invoice item in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).

 

It's a great idea to add a line number to the invoice item. However, this option is currently unavailable in QBDT. I can see how additional options and functionality with customizing invoice would be helpful for both you and your organization. I'm going to submit feedback regarding this directly to our Product Developers for consideration in future updates.

 

QuickBooks is constantly changing and evolving based largely on the suggestions and requests of users, like yourself and I encourage you to submit feedback as well. Here's how:

 

1. At the top menu bar, go to Help.
2. Click Send Feedback Online.
3. Enter your request/product suggestion, then click Next.
4. Click Skip and send a message.
5. Select Feedback as the Category.

 

That's it! Thanks for being a part of our QuickBooks family. Should you have any follow-up questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll get back to you right away. Take care and have a good one.

Re: Is there a way to add line number to the invoice item list?

Maybe the discussion to this point has fully answered your question....but are you by chance wanting the line numbers to be added to the invoice automatically (instead of having to type them in)?

 

If so, you might look at one of the 3rd-party calculation add-ons for QuickBooks desktop, FormCalc SST for QuickBooks or CCRQInvoice. I think either one could do that job. (Google them, because not all QuickBooks add-ons are in Intuit's Marketplace web site.)
