Profit & Loss by invoice

    Does anyone know a way to get gross profit by invoice? I have a
    contractor who bills clients one invoice per job and if I set up a Job
    in QB for each invoice the Customer Master is going to start getting
    ugly. The sales information is on the invoice and all cost are
    assigned to the invoice with Items so how do I see profit by invoice.

    Yes, I know there is a profit by jobs report, I want profit by invoice.
    This client does not set up a new job each time, only a customer.

    You only get out what you put in-there is no magic. You have to use what the
    system offers -p&l by job so you have set up a job for each invoice.

    Later...

    Try using a P&L by jobs report, then filter by transaction type =
    invoice and number = invoice number...

    But he is not unless he allocates his costs to the invoice #

    You can use the Profit and Loss by Job Report, then customize with a filter
    and filter the list by PO number, works like a charm, you can either have a
    seperate PO number or have them use the Invoice number as the PO number then
    they can filter for each PO number.

    Like everyone has said already, first use the reports and then filter...
