We just upgraded to the newest edition of QuickBooks from QB2008. When I try to open a new Current Liability sub-account, it is showing up under a different parent account than the one I select. I am trying to set up a sub-account under Client Retainers and it is showing up under Payroll Liabilities. I never had this problem with the older version of QB. Thank you for your assistance.
