This is a Basic List Management tool and applies to any list in QB. When the report is wrong, it indicates the list is wrong.
Open the Chart of Accounts and use View menu > re-Sort list. This allows QB to put it back into Alpha order. This will fix the report.
Oh, sorry: For Mac, I think it is one of your Control/Command menu functions. Open Write Check, click on the account dropdown, try Ctl/Cmd L.
