custom transaction detail report

I'm using quickbooks pro 2016 on windows 7.  When I double click on an account in my P&L it opens a "custom transaction detail report". I send reports on various accounts to my accountant for taxes. Every transaction detail report that I generate I have to modify to my liking - which is a painful waste of time. How do I make my changes come up every time I double click and drill down on an account without having to re-modify it?

We can customize the report and memorize the customization, dynsol.

 

This way, we don't have to remodify the report every time you open it. I'll show you how:

 

  1. Click the Reports menu.
  2. From Company & Financial, select a Profit and Loss report.
  3. Select the account.
  4. In the Transaction Detail by Account page, click the Customize Report button.
  5. Filter the report, and then click OK.
  6. Click Memorize.
  7. Enter a Name report.
  8. Select either you'd want to Share this report template with others or Save in Memorized Report Group.
  9. Click OK.

 

 

I've added this article on how to access the memorized reports: Create, access, and modify memorized reports.

 

I'm just a post-away if you still need my help. Have a great day!

Adrian,

Thanks for your reply.

I've performed the procedure you outline and QB wants a unique name when I memorize it.

I've created one with a unique name but when I drill down on the account the previous report comes up.

I've gone into the report center under the memorized tab and the old and new reports are there; when I "run" them the have the format I want but not when I run them from the P&L.

Thanks for the reply, @dynsol.

 

Let's run a Verify and Rebuild on your Data in QuickBooks Desktop to troubleshoot the Report Center. If you have Assisted Payroll, then I recommend reaching out to our Payroll Support. On the other hand, I've provided the steps below on how to do this with ease:

 

 

Verify the Data:

  1. Go to Window in the top menu, then select Close All.
  2. Click on File in the top menu, then choose Utilities then Verify Data.

 

Rebuild the Data:

  1. Go to File in the top menu, then select Utilities then Rebuild Data.
  2. You'll receive a warning message to backup your company file, press OK.
  3. The Rebuild Data utility will start as soon as the backup is finished.
  4. Hit OK when you get the message "Rebuild has completed."

 

After completing these steps, let's finish this process by checking the remaining data. You can do this by going to File in the top menu, then selecting Utilities Verify Data. Here's a Community Article that provides more information about this process: Verify and Rebuild Data in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Once completed, take a look in your Report Center and view different reports. Let me know if this does the trick. I'll be here if you need further assistance.
