The selections you make in this window change the current report. You can
make as many—or few—changes as you need.
This setting determines how the report calculates income and expenses.
Select Cash if you want the report to base income and
expenses on the date that cash actually changes hands. For example, a cash
basis report treats a customer payment for an invoice as income, but not
an unpaid invoice.
Select Accrual if you want the report to base income on the
date you billed a customer, and expenses on the date you entered a bill. For
example, an accrual basis report includes both a customer payment and an
unpaid invoice as income.
To change the report basis for all reports, and not just for this particular
report, select the basis you want in the Reports & Graphs Preferences window. (Reports that list transactions individually always appear as accrual
basis reports when you create them. To change one of these reports to cash
basis, you must use the Modify Report window.)
The selections on this list create subtotal columns for specific time
periods or other factors. For example, choosing Week adds weekly subtotal
columns to the report.
Choose Total only to exclude subtotals from the report.
Choose Account list to subtotal by each account in your
chart of accounts.
Changes the calendar base for report dates. For example, you can change the
base from your company's fiscal year to the calendar year.
