Well, isn't that the dumbest thing...

Someone please tell me I'm wrong. When creating an invoice, QB gives the
option to see expenses and items purchased that were assigned to the client.
Expenses in particular, can be grouped, marked up and added to the invoice
as one line...I mean two lines...one for the "expenses" and one for the
"markup". There is no way to simply show the expenses after markup? Why
would I want to include the markup as a seperate item on the invoice? Why
don't I just have my suppliers send the bills directly to the clients!

You are wrong.

Yes.

On the invoice screen.

Of course there is.
Why would I want to include the markup as a seperate item on the invoice?
You wouldn't. Not on the PRINTED invoice you send to your clients. Perhaps
that is why QB has you check the box "Print items in group" if indeed, that
is what you want to do.

But it sure is nice to have the flexibility to adjust the markup on the
invoice screen.
Why don't I just have my suppliers send the bills directly to the clients!
Well, that certainly would cut out the middle man.

That subject line makes me selfish?
Frustrated yes, but selfish??
If you came up with a subject line that indicated your problem people
could more easily identify whether they could help you or if they have
a similar problem they could see whether a solution was given. Any
nonsensical subject line is useless.

Still frustrated?
Thought my post would help. But, if it hasn't - just look up 'group items'
in the helpfile.
That should get you going.

Sorry, I altered the invoice I was working on so that it would print the way
I wanted. I haven't been able to redo the invoice with the grouping yet to
see how it prints out. However, it would make sense that QB would not show
the markup on the printout, but they should probably design the process a
little better, but that is neither here nor their. I can update once I've
had a chance to try it out. In the meantime, thanks for the info.
