For many lists, you can set up a list entry with a subentry. For example, in
the Chart of Accounts, you can have accounts with subaccounts, or in the Item
List, you can have items with subitems.
Lists that have subentries can be viewed in hierarchical view (all
subentries are indented) or in flat view (all entries are at the same level).
The different views are available for these lists only: Chart of Accounts,
Items, Customers & Jobs, Customer Type, Vendor Type, and Job Type. By default, the
hierarchical view is displayed when you first display one of these lists.
Display the list that you want.
For the Customers & Jobs list, right-click and choose Flat View.
For other lists, click the list name menu button at the bottom of the list and
choose Flat View.
You can sort the list while it is flattened. In the flat view, the sort is
absolute. That is, the sort does not take into account the level or type of the
entries. This is useful, for example, for sorting all jobs by estimate total, regardless
For the Customers & Jobs list, right-click and choose
Hierarchical View. For other lists, click the list name menu button at the
bottom of the list and choose Hierarchical View.
The list is displayed with all its subentries so that you can easily see the
entry/subentry structure. Sorting on the hierarchical view does not change the
entry/subentry hierarchy. The list is first sorted by top-level entry. Within
each entry, the list is then sorted by subentry.
