I adjusted Product Non-Inventory Expense Accts from Purchases to COGS, most flowed through to the income stmt, but a few are still reporting as Purchases. Why? Glitch?

Let's see what's going on, qristy.

 

Based on the details you've provided, there's a possibility that some of the items were updated, but did not affect the historical transactions. To correct this, you'll need to toggle the expense account. Here's how:

  1. Click Sales on the left menu and go to the Products and Services tab.
  2. Look for the items you want to review and click Edit.
  3. Go to the Purchasing information section and change the Expense account.
  4. Click Save and close.
  5. Click Edit on the item and go to the Purchasing information again.
  6. Change the Expense account back to COGS.
  7. Mark the Also update this account in historical transactions box.
  8. Click Save and close.

If you're unsure of what items to update, you can click the amount on the report.  This will open a Transaction Detail report where you can see the transactions. From there, you can click the transaction and you'll see what are these items.

 

With that, you can follow the steps I've provided above to update the historical data.

 

Let me know how this goes so we can further assist you. Additional details such as the report name and other screenshots would be much appreciated.

Thank you for the suggestion. The toggling is the only way to get the "Update Historical Transactions" box to appear. Worked great. Thank you, qristy
