Item list order on reports

I have recently made changes to items in our item list.  We created some "title items" and added subitems to them.  When I view my item list on the desktop it is in order.  However any report I run for these they are not in order.  Most importantly is my Job Cost Detail, I have customized the report to total by item detail instead of by customer.  But the item order is all jumbled  up.

Item list order on reports

You can re-sort your item lists, @mmgd.

 

It will make your lists go back to their default order and will undo the changes made to them. This way, you'll see the correct arrangements in your Job Cost Detail report.

 

Before doing so, ensure you're on single-user mode. Here's how to verify it:

 

  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. Check to see if the option says Switch to Multi-User Mode. If not, click it to switch to single-user mode.

Once ready, here's how to proceed:

 

  1. Go to the Lists menu, and then select Item Lists.
  2. Tick the Include Inactive checkbox. If it's grayed out, there are no inactive names.
  3. Tap the Name  drop-down, and then pick the Re-sort List option.
  4. Hit OK to confirm the action, and then close and reopen your company file.

You may edit your item lists to keep your records up-to-date. Also, after customizing your report, you'll want to memorize them for easy access.

Item list order on reports

Thank you, I didn't think resorting the list was the issue because it was in "order" when I opened the Items & Services icon.  But it did fix it.
