Quickbooks online: I want to run an expense by vendor report that shows expense type. Doesn't seem possible anymore - only summary. What am I missing?

Looking for expenses broken out by expense type (travel, insurance, etc.) for last year. Don't seem to have that option anymore?

Hi wolfeny,

Let me help you run a vendor report.

The Expenses by Vendor Summary report will not filter the transactions by type. However, you can run a Transaction Detail by Account and customize this report.

Here's how:

  1. On the left panel, click Reports.
  2. Type Transaction Detail by Account in the search box.
  3. Choose the Report period, and click the Customize button located in the upper-right hand corner.
  4. Click Rows/Columns to expand, and click the Change columns link.
  5. Check the boxes for Date, Vendor, Transaction Type, Account, and Product/Service.
  6. Click Filter to expand, and choose Expense from the Transaction Type drop down menu.
  7. Select the accounts you want to view (travel, insurance, etc.) from the Distribution Account drop down list.
  8. Choose the vendor you want to show in the report from the Vendor drop down list.
  9. Click Run Report.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns about QuickBooks Online. Thank you.

No dice. When I try to execute the second item on your list above I get, "Please make a valid entry." I copied and pasted exactly what you instructed. Can't get past #2.

Just tried the same and it didn't work....this is ridiculous.

Hi @wolfeny,

 

Let me help you navigate through the reports.

 

I've attached screenshots of the steps above shared by my colleague. This way, I can show you exactly how to pull up and view the Transactions Detail by Account report.
