QuickBooks Lists Not Sorted Alphabetically

In my consulting practice I have recently had quite a few Attorneys that use QuickBooks have a common problem when they were trying to display a list.  The problem is when they view a list (like the Chart of Accounts), the list is not sorted alphabetically, which makes finding a particular entry a bit of a hassle.

Here is a quick way to get those lists back in shape.

  1. Click on List from the Main Menu and choose Chart of Accounts.
  2. This will display your Chart of Accounts list.
  3. With the list open, click View from the Main Menu and Re-sort list.

Tada!  The list is resorted.   This will also work in the customers, vendors and items list.
