Report which shows how much a paid a vendor on a job

I need to generate a report that shows how much I have paid a specific vendor by a specific job/customer.  I have tried everything I can think of and can't come up with one that shows how much I have already paid the vendor on a specific job.  Any help would be appreciated.  I have QB contractor.

Hi Laura1313,
Let me help you run a vendor report that will give you the information you are looking for.  You can consider pulling up and customizing the Transaction List by Vendor 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 DateVendorTransaction TypeAccount, and Customer/Vendor Message
  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.

This should give you the details you are looking for! Please let me know if you have any other questions. Take care!

Thanks but this doesn't help at all. 

 

As I mentioned, I have QB CONTRACTOR edition.  I am trying to run a report on how much I paid a vendor on a specific JOB.  I can't imagine why I can't run a report which tells me how much I have already paid my VENDOR per JOB.  Job Costing is difficult if I can't easily tell how much I have already paid the vendor on specific JOBS.

Report which shows how much a paid a vendor on a job

Hi there, Laura1313. 

 

Thanks for dropping by the Community. After digging through the reports and trying to make this report work like you're mentioning, unfortunately, it's currently unavailable in our product to have a vendor report specific to customer jobs. However if you run a Job profitability report and click on the totals, you can see what bills are associated with the customer job specified. I'm including this helpful link on how to track job costs in QuickBooks Desktop. I can see how this report would be very beneficial, so I'm suggesting it to our product engineer team to see if it can be added in a future update. Keep an eye on our QuickBooks Blog. That's were all information regarding updates and changes are added. 

 

If you have any other questions, feel free to post here anytime. Thank you and have a lovely day.

Where do you put in the job name if you only want one particular job?

Yes i agree how can you have a job costing accounting system without being able to pull a paid vendor report by job.
