Resorting your lists is a common troubleshooting tool in QuickBooks for Mac.  You have many lists in your data file, but only five lists are discussed here:

  • Customer
  • Master Names
  • Chart of Accounts
  • Item
  • Class

Re-sorting a list will return it to its default order.  This can often fix minor list damage. Always resort your lists before running the Rebuild Data Utility.
