The feature of generating data reports using the QuickBooks accounting software is very fast. This feature of reporting in QuickBooks adds more power to the QuickBooks accounting tool which is already considered as a powerful accounting tool by many small and medium businesses around the world.
The reporting feature of QuickBooks enables businesses to get a real time analysis of their businesses by utilizing the data that is recorded and stored in QuickBooks. The QuickBooks accounting software also helps you in customizing the reports as per your wish or your business requirements. Let us explore here that how you can build a customized or in other words a personalized report using the QuickBooks accounting tool.
In QuickBooks accounting software, the items and assemblies needed for the manufacturing of a final product are recorded in the build report. The process of creating a personalized or customized report in QuickBooks Premier version or QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions version either involves creation of a Bill of Material (BOM) for each custom item, modification of the BOM for the assembly item each time you create it, or modify the BOM at the time of issuing the build.
The last option is feasible only in the case of QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions, whereas the first option is not possible if there are many assembly items or numerous variations that are possible. In the second and third options, you may face an issue that is you cannot go back to view the item record and take a printout of the BOM so that you can see what was used by you.
You would not be able to see the components that were used by you to build the BOM earlier. Also, you would not find any report in QuickBooks that reflects the components that were used by you. You can avoid facing this problem by using the Custom Transaction Detail Report in QuickBooks. Here is how you can use the Custom Transaction Detail Report feature in QuickBooks.
