I have a report that is for one category (dues). It has several subcategories. Is there a way to create this report where items shown are not seperated by subcategories?


Hello there, jacklschoer

I can share the report you can generate to show up the parent and sub-categories of an item.

In QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT), you can use the Sales by Item Detail report and sort it by Type and Due Date. Please see SalesbyItemDetailSortedbyType.PNG and AddDueDateColumn.PNG below.

Here’s how to run the report:

  1. Go to the Reports menu at the top, then select Sales.
  2. Choose Sales by Item Detail.
  3. You can click Customize Report to customize the information you’ll need to show up on the report (see CustomizeReport.PNG below).

For more information about customization of reports, please check out these articles:

Let me know if you need anything else while customizing reports in QBDT. I’ll be here to assist you further, jacklschoer. Cheers!

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.
