QB erroneously treats order acknowledgements as invoices.

A client raises order acknowledgements in QuickBooks 2008 for their clients. QuickBooks records these as invoices even though no invoicable work has been done yet. How can they stop it doing this?

Use Sales Orders

You can turn on sales orders on preferences

They can amend a template to call it an acknowledgement - when the invoice is needed it is easiy created from this

Mark Invoice as Pending

You could also mark the invoice as pending (right click in the top section and choose mark as pending). This removes the invoice from all accounts. If you want to see the pending invoice list there is a report.

You may need this if your version of Quickbooks does not include Sales Orders.

I went for the Mark Invoice as Pending option, as it seemed easier.

Thanks very much.
