QuickBooks Tip: Easily See the Accounting Entry Behind the Screen

Regardless of whether you have entered an invoice, bill, check or credit card transaction, QuickBooks makes it a snap to see exactly how it posted that transaction into your accounting records. A couple of quick and easy ways to see this information:

1. While in the transaction, click CTRL + Y

2. While sitting in the transaction, click the picture in the upper portion of the window that says "Journal"

3. In the menu bar (where it says File, Edit, View, etc.) Click Reports > Transaction Journal

No matter which option you choose, you end up with an easy to read report that shows the complete accounting breakdown of the transaction.

No more guessing - use this Transaction Journal report to see exactly what happened with that invoice or other transaction in QuickBooks.
