I've set up a chart of accounts with a number of parent/child type relationships - e.g.: a parent P&L expense of Telephone and then sub accounts of landline, mobile, other, etc.
When I run the P&L it insists on showing me all of the child/sub accounts and sub totals whereas I want it to show the total of Telephone. I need the sub accounts for detailed analysis, I certainly don't want them in the P&L on page one of a set of management accounts.
Quickbooks helpline tells me this can't be done but I can't believe that this is the case. Surely the point of sub accounts is that you can choose what level to report at - account or sub account.
Any help will be gratefully received.
