Performance tips for reports

Running a very large report can prevent other users from working in your company file while QuickBooks creates the report. For large reports, we suggest the following:

  • Wait until other users have logged out of the company file before you run the reports. For the best performance, run the reports on the computer where you store your company file. If the file is on a network computer that is unavailable to you, use the fastest computer connected to the network.

  • Be aware that some reports require more time to create than others. The slowest reports are journal reports and cash basis transaction reports.

  • In the Reports & Graphs preferences, consider selecting "Prompt me to refresh" or "Don't refresh." Refreshing reports automatically can slow performance.

  • Refresh a report or graph only when you are ready to work with its data. If (Refresh needed) appears in the toolbar of a report or graph and you are not working with the report or graph, leave the report or graph unrefreshed.
