Welcome and thanks for your question!
What version of Quickbooks are you using?
Quickbooks Premier : contractors edition 2013
Try these steps:
I apologize - I'm not sure why that last line showed up so large.
Let me give you an example ; On the time tab if I check multiple employees it will combine each employee on the invoice ( Thats OK) However if I have 8 bills under the item Lighting They each take a line on the invoice instead of making one " Lighting line
Ok, I see what you're saying.
Have you tried looking at the print preview?
They will show as individual items within the "create invoice" view in Quickbooks, but if you preview the invoice, you should only see one line item. Is that what's happening?
Yes that does bring it to one line item // . In my construction I have 31 categories that I use for the contract and would like to invoice dividing into the same categories.
Ok - so you want separate groups for each category?
Ok - what you can do is add the items to the invoice separately. So, if you have 5 items you want to bill under "lighting", select those 5 items, check the box to print as one invoice item and click ok to add to the invoice.
Repeat on the invoice with the next group of items and so on and so forth.
I know it's a tedious process, but it will work.
check the box to print as one invoice item and click ok to add to the invoice. ( Where is this "box"??
When you are in the "choose billable time and costs" screen, there is a box in the lower left hand corner of that window.
I got it to combine as you said // Is there any way to change the name Reimb Group ?
Unfortunately, you are stuck with that name. But you can change the description to coincide with your categories so it is more evident what is being grouped together.
That may work ok. I think I can build on the info you gave me and make it work. I will admit of all the great things quickbooks does this is a little cumbersome
