Hello there, @Lisa-S.
Let me help you access the original report you wanted to pull up. I suggest switching to single-user mode to access the report without any issue. Let me show you how to do it.
QuickBooks will close all open windows within the program. Then a message will appear letting you know that QuickBooks is now in Single-User Mode.
If the issue persists, let's update your QuickBooks to the latest released version, here's how:
For step-by-step instructions, you can read through this article: Update QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release.
Keep me posted if you have other questions. I'm always here to help.
I have updated my QB...I do not believe that updating has anything to do with my issue.
What I need to know is:
"How do I determine the original report of a memorized report I created?"
I tried the F1 when the report is pulled up and it does not show the original report name as I was told in a previous answer to my question. I have attached an example of what happens when I do this.
Can you help?
Hello there, @Lisa-S.
I appreciated that you followed the suggested steps provided by my colleagues. However, let me add some troubleshooting steps that will help you determine the original report of a memorized report.
As I can see in your screenshot, it seems that you're trying to pull up an inventory report, so you can manually open the report by following these steps:
Also, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks Support so that they can pull up your account in a safe environment. They can also check why does the Help menu is not providing a result for the original report name.

I have some information about getting the original report name. When you edit or modify the memorized report, you're unable to view its old name.
However, based on the modified report, you can go back to the Report Center and look for it from the list.
As an example of the attached screenshot shared by @Lisa-S, that report is called Item Profitability. You can find it by going to:
Additionally, here's a link that covers all tasks you can do when using the report center.
Keep me posted if you still need about payroll. I’m more than happy to assist further. Have a great day ahead.
Nope, that does not work. I have a memorized report from months ago. I want to know what original report I had started out with. Has nothing to do with payroll, etc. When I edit or modify my report or go into the report center, it just displays my report name as it is now.
Thanks for joining this thread, @pacificjatc. I want to make sure you'll be able to find the original name of your memorized report.
When you create a memorized report, you can open and access them in the Report Center. From there, you can review and see the original name of the statement.
Moving forward, when saving a memorized report, it would be best to enter a new name. This way, it will be easy for you to find the statement. For additional insight on how you can manage your saved reports, you may consider checking out this article: Modify, edit and delete Memorized report.
Additionally, let me share this link to help you combine your financial reports from multiple QuickBooks Desktop company files. Doing so will help you organized and have a better overview of your companies’ financial behavior.
