Wouldn't it be nice to have the ability to include a subtotal in a QuickBooks estimate, sales order, invoice or purchase order when needed?
This capability exists within QuickBooks - you just need a little setup work to make it happen.
EXAMPLE: SHOWING SUBTOTALS ON AN INVOICE
Here is a sample invoice screen that shows you how this can work within QuickBooks:
Note: I have purposely skipped a line between the line items and subtotal in the sample above for easy viewing. You don't have to skip a line.
See how the insertion of the subtotal adds up the lines directly above it, but nothing above the previous subtotal line?
Pretty cool, huh?
HOW TO MAKE A SUBTOTAL WORK
It's actually pretty easy. Click Lists > Item List. Click the Item button at the bottom of the screen, then click New.
In the drop-down list that appears (where you see service, non-inventory part, etc.), select Subtotal, give it a name, and click OK.
From there, simply select this new item whenever you need it, and QuickBooks will automatically take care of the calculation for you...
