Can I delete or remove the Billable? column under journal entries?

I never use this feature and do not want it included as a column. I have to uncheck this box on every line in the journal entry.


This tells us you are using Journal entries with Names. That means you should not be using JE at all, because you just bypassed the Name-related functions entirely.

You have a program with an interface = set of Tools. JE is not used for customer, vendor, employee or Other Names listings on them. It isn't used for AR, AP, Sales, Sales Taxes, inventory, Job reporting, QB payroll.

You cannot change the behavior of the Billable box in Preferences. That is for the Expenses tab of purchase transactions: Checks, Bills, Vendor Credits, Credit Card Charges and Credits.

It seems you are not using Items at all, because they cannot be listed here at all, as well. So, it seems you are bypassing most of these functions.

You indicate you have Enterprise. You seem to be trying to "drive a tractor" instead of actually using the tools found in Enterprise, which is the Ferrari of the QB programs.

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.
