Hello there, jonathankito.

 

Your expenses categories will appear as "-Split-" if your transactions have multiple line items. Let me share further details about it.

 

When you pull up a certain report, you can view the details of the line items and the accounts connected to it by selecting the transaction. Then, you'll be routed to the  transaction window where you can review its information.

 

Furthermore, there's a specific report where you can view the complete list of your transactions with splits. It's the Transaction List with Splits. To pull it up, here's how:

  1. Go to the Reports menu.
  2. Search for Transaction List with Splits.
  3. Select the Customize button.
  4. Set the date range in the Report period section.
  5. Change the columns by selecting the Rows/Columns drop-down arrow.
  6. Select the specific information you want in the Filter drop-down.
  7. Click Run report.

 

Once done, you can memorize the Transaction List with Splits report to save its current customization settings. For the detailed steps, kindly refer to this article: Memorize reports in QuickBooks Online. It also contains information on how to set a schedule and email the memorized report.

 

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'm just around to help.
