When I search and select a sales order from the sales order list, it doesn't open the one I chose, it opens the one that was highlighted before searching. Help?

We have 730 sales orders in our system. When we attempt to open a past sales order (with intention to copy it for a future date), instead of opening the one we chose, (either by double clicking or by pressing "Select Sales Order", it opens whichever line was highlighted prior to searching. This is only occurring the host computer, not on the server.


Hello there, info,

Please be informed that this is a reported issue which results to the inability to open your chosen sales order. Our Product Team is currently investigating this behavior to make sure we'll come up with a fix as soon as possible.

As a workaround, you can locate the sales order in the customer history. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Customer menu, then select Customer List.
  2. Choose Edit.
  3. Select Customer history.
  4. Click Sales Order, then select to open the specific sales order transaction.

Once done, you'll be able to open the sales order you want to copy for a future date.

I'd also recommend contacting our QuickBooks Point of Sale Team to help us resolve the problem. They can add your company to the list of affected accounts so that you’ll receive updates via email.

I'll also get back to you on this post once I get a notification that the issue is resolved.

I appreciate your patience while we're working on this. Please do not hesitate to leave a comment if you have further questions. I'm just around if you need 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.
