Using QuickBooks Reports to Locate Earlier Journal Entries
A reader wrote to ask, "When I need to look at a journal entry I made a while ago, I have to click the Previous button through every QuickBooks journal entry until I come to the one I want. Is there an easier way to do this?"
Choose Reports – Accountant & Taxes – Journal from the QuickBooks menu bar. Click Modify Report and move to the Filter tab. In the Filter list, select Transaction Type, and then select Journal. Memorize the report so you don't have to go through these steps again. (In QuickBooks Premier Accountant Edition, there's a Reports icon on the Make General Journal Entries transaction window – just select the report you need.)
