when I run job estimates vs actual detail report the est cost number do not match estimate numbers for job

Hello there, PJL0999.

 

The amount recorded from the estimate will be the same amount showing in the Est. Cost number in the Job Estimates vs Actual Detail report. One thing we can do is to double-check the transaction. Here's how:

 

  1. Open the Job Estimates vs Actual Detail report.
  2. In the Est. Cost column, double click the amount.
  3. Then, open the transaction by clicking it twice.
  4. Review the amount and correct it if necessary.
  5. Click Save and Close.

 

All transactions coming from the estimate will match unless there is a transaction that does not come from the estimate. For more details about managing report in QuickBooks Desktop, check these articles:

 

 

Let me know if you have other questions. Take care always.

Hello there, @PJL0999.

 

 Job Estimates vs. Actuals Detail offers detailed costs and revenues for the customer or job you have selected. It compares estimated and actual costs and estimated to actual revenue for each job that you invoiced. I suggest checking each amount under Est.Cost column to review the details why it shows a different amount.

 

You can also check the date range, it should be matched on the period here the estimates have been entered.

 

You can use this article on how to customize reports: Customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop.
