Re: Quickbooks the P&L Report from 2016. Please help how to do it?

Greetings, @orsi1976.


I’d be pleased to furnish you with steps to ensure you’re able to generate successfully your 2016 Profit and Loss report.


Looking at the screenshot you’ve provided, I can see in here that you want to record your 2016 account lists with QuickBooks Online and include it in running your Profit and Loss report. 


Instead of manually adding those accounts, you may import it with QuickBooks Online. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Choose Import Data.
  3. Select Chart of Accounts.
  4. In the Import Accounts page, click the Browse button.
  5. Search for the Excel file to import.
  6. Click Open.
  7. Hit Next to Continue.
  8. Map your data, then click Next.
  9. Click Import.

Once completed, you can now enter your 2016 transactions with QuickBooks and make sure it is recorded under the correct account.

On the other hand, if you are referring to QuickBooks Desktop, I can see in here that there is a duplicate post about your concern.
