modify report to show full account name/number


Hello there, nancycamus1950,

Let's get your account name and number show up in your report by going to your Company Preferences.

Let me show you how:

  1. Go to the Edit menu.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Go to the Accounting menu, then select the Company Preferences tab.
  4. Put a check mark on the Use account numbers box.
  5. Click OK to save the changes.

Please see the attached screenshots for your guidance.

If you are referring to the customer/vendor account number, you can customize a report to display the information. 

Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Reports menu.
  2. Select Lists, then select Customer Phone/Contact List or Vendor Phone/Contact List.
  3. Click Customize Report.
  4. On the Display tab, search Account No. on the Columns text box.
  5. Put a check mark by clicking Account No.
  6. Click OK to save the changes.

However, if you are referring to the company bank details, QuickBooks isn't able to show this information for security reasons.

That'll do it. Let me know if you are referring to something else by leaving a comment below. I’ll be around to help.

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.
