standard profit & loss statement account numbers appeared. I use account numbers in g/l but not statements. How do I remove them from the Profit & Loss Statement


Glad to see you here in the Community, ram.

I can help you with removing the account numbers from your account number from your reports.

You can go to your company preferences and remove the account numbers. Once done, this will be automatically removed from your profit and loss report.

Here's how:

  1. Go to your Edit menu and select Preferences
  2. Choose Accounting from the left tab.
  3. Select Company Preferences.
  4. Uncheck the Use account numbers box.
  5. Click OK to save. 

Check this article for more information: Set report preferences.

That should remove the account numbers. If you have questions about the steps provided about your account numbers, let me know by leaving a comment below. I'm always here to assist. Have a great rest of the day.

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.
