P & L detail that will show the vendor and the job??


When I'm getting a file ready to send to the accountant for taxes I pull a last fiscal year P & L and then click on the Total Expense to see all of the expense details.  This company uses jobs and if it's not for a particular job they use General Overhead as the job.  So what I see when I look at the detail for Name is either General Overhead or a Customer Job name.

In order to be sure that each expense is categorized correctly I really need to see the Vendor name but it's the Job name that you see in the report. 

Is there anyway to create a report that would either show just the Vendor name or would show both Vendor and Job?  I can't open every entry to be sure it is categorized properly :(

At this point all I can come up with is to run a Transaction list by Vendor and look at the splits and maybe that's what I have to do....

I'd appreciate any ideas you might have :)

I can help you customize your report and show the data that we need, Kulakat1. 


The Transaction List by Vendor report is one way of identifying which vendor the expense was applied to. Aside from that, we can actually add the Source Name column that will display the vendor's name.


Here's how:

  1. Run the Profit & Loss report, double-click on the Total Expense amount. 
  2. From the Transaction Detail By Account report, click the Customize Report button.
  3. Filter the Report Date Range and from the Search Columns field, type Source Name
  4. Check Source Name and then click OK

We can also manage your reports aside from adding columns. Click here for more details. 


Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks!
