Hello there, @Gracenurture.
Thank you for joining the Community. Allow me to help share some insights to set up sub-accounts in QuickBooks Online successfully.
To make sure I'm on the same page, may I know what account type and detail are you trying to set up? This way, I can check in my end if there's any reported issue similar to yours.
It's possible that this is a browser issue, which we can test for by setting up a sub-account in a private browser. These steps will vary based on which browser you're using.
If you got it to work, try clearing the temporary Internet files/cache in your regular browsers. Clearing them manually can solve problems with websites or browsers. Since the private window wasn't using the information stored there, chances are there was some old data in the cache that was causing the problem.

I had the same problem, which was corrected in an incognito browser (thank you); however, I'm using the desktop QBO app and the changes did not carry over. Looks like this will be a significant issue with the desktop app, if it won't update while making list changes.
