Using the QuickBooks Show Lowest Subaccount Only Option
If you have QuickBooks set up to use numbered accounts you can configure a nifty option to display only the subaccount when working in transaction windows. This option is useful because it means that when you see an account number in a drop-down list (in a transaction window) you only see the subaccount—which makes it easier to see precisely which account is receiving the posting. To select this option in QuickBooks:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the Accounting icon on the left pane to open the Accounting preferences, and click the Company Preferences tab.
- In the Accounts section select Show Lowest Subaccount Only by clicking the check box.
- Click OK to save your settings.
