On the Accounts Payable report the "Past Due" column always seems to be relative to TODAY. How do I change it to be relative to the REPORT DATE ?

Assume that a Supplier Bill is dated 2 July 2018, with a Due Date of 1 Aug 2018.  

Assume that the user runs an Accounts Payable Report on the 7 August 2018, using "Last Month" (ie 31 July 2018) as the report date. 

The "Past Due" column always shows 6 days.  The "Past Due" column is relative to the date the report is run.  How do you make it so that the Past Due column is relative to the Report Date? 

The column should show -1 as Report Date (31 July) minus Due Date (1 Aug) is -1 day. 

I need the number of days the invoice was Past Due as at the Report Date.

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.
