Why is it suddenly not letting me put $$ amounts in the invoice lines. I can enter it, but as soon as I 'add to invoice' it registers only the customer name not the $$


Hello there, @measureproji.

When adding line items in creating an invoice, there's no need to enter the dollar ($) sign. I'd be glad to walk you through on how it works.

To create an invoice, here's how:

  1. Go to the Invoice menu.
  2. Click the Create Invoice button.
  3. Select the recipient's name and email address.
  4. Type in the description of the service or item by clicking Add work.
  5. Break your work down by flat rate, hour, or item.
  6. Enter the Amount or Rate.
  7. Click on Add to Invoice.
I've attached a screenshot below for your reference.

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.
