P & L by Job report shows amounts under Customer:Job names to which they are not assigned

The Profit and Loss by Job report shows amounts under Customer:Job names to which they are not assigned.

Why this is happening

Each transaction has a source name and one or more target names. When you enter a Customer:Job name as the source name, e.g., the "Pay to the order of" field of a check or the first line of a journal entry, while leaving the target names blank, QuickBooks, will copy the source name into the blank target name fields. When this occurs, those targets are assigned to the Customer:Job in the source name field.

Open the Transaction Journal report to see a transaction's source and target names.

How to fix it

To avoid having Customer:Job names report incorrectly, select one of the following options:

  • On a journal entry, enter the accounts with names on the lower lines after the accounts without names. Use Ctrl + Delete and Ctrl + Insert to add or delete individual lines.
     
  • For other types of transactions, assign the appropriate name to the target line of the entry, or create a name on the Other Names List called No Name, and enter it with the target accounts. The information will still appear on the Profit & Loss by Job report, but in a separate column for No Name. The Other Names List is located in the Lists menu.
