Profit and Loss report

Good morning everyone!

I'm running QB on line "Essentials".

When I run a "Profit and loss report by customer" report, It shows sales by customer but NOT costs by customer. Am I doing something wrong when entering receipts for the material and labor?


Thanks in advance!

Profit and Loss report

I can give you a reason why the cost of goods sold isn't assigned to each customer in your P&L report, @Robert_Lee.


Based on the screenshot that you've provided, the cost of goods is under the NOT SPECIFIED column. This means that these transactions are not linked to your customers.


To specify which customer these transactions belong to, we can open each of them and specify which customer they are linked to. Here's how:


  1. Open the same report, click the transaction under the NOT SPECIFIED column.
  2. Select the transaction, then choose the customer in the CUSTOMER column.
  3. Click Save.


Repeat these steps for the rest of the unspecified transactions.


That's it! Please let me know if there's anything else I can do to be of assistance. Have a great weekend!
