Why are the Debits and Credits not showing up on my Transaction Detail by Account report?

I am trying to run a Transaction Detail by Account report and the columns for Debits and Credits have disappeared. Any idea how to get them back? Or if there is another place in QuickBooks where I can find them. I am looking for GST credits and debits total specifically.


Hello Paige,

Debit and Credit columns do not show by default on the Transaction Detail by Account report, but I can definitely tell you how to customize the report to show this information:

1) When you run the Transaction Detail by Account report, simply click on “customize” above the dates in the top left hand corner.

2) Next, click on the blue button in the center of the pop-up for “Change columns”.

3) In the left available column, click on “credit” to highlight it, click the “add” button to bring it to the right "selected columns". Repeat with “Debit”. You can use the arrows on the right to adjust the order of the columns. Click on “Ok” 

I hope this resolves the issue. Just an added tip.. I would also recommend that you use the button in the top left hand corner to “Memorize” the report so it will save with these settings and you won’t have  to add in the debit/credit columns every time.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
