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.

QuickBooks Update Service

When you open QuickBooks you may encounter a message that says QuickBooks has an update.

Don’t just click Install Later.   It usually only takes a few minutes.   QuickBooks releases these updates for fixes or new features.


If you are working in a network environment you need to keep in mind that once one of you update you will all need to update.   2013 released the R6 update and this fixed a lot of issues they were having so I recommend updating it.


If you have an older product you may see a message that prompts you for a new release.   This is upgrading, so you don’t want to do this unless you want to buy the new product.

QuickBooks is the number one small business accounting software and for good reason. It is easy to use and reasonably priced. QuickBooks can do the following things that attorneys generally need:



  • Client Information – Track Client contact information and case information.

  • Track Billable and Non Billable Time – QuickBooks has a great Time Tracking feature. An attorney can track their billable and non billable time for their clients. It also has a Timer program that comes separate and able to run without QuickBooks. This enables everyone in the office to track time and the bookkeeper and pull the time into QuickBooks.

  • Tracking Postage, Copies and Other Client Costs – QuickBooks can help you keep track of postage, copies and other client costs so that you can easily bill your clients.

  • Billing Rates and Price Levels – You can create custom price levels for your clients. It can also track Billing Rate levels that can be associated by the time keeper. (This is available in the Professional Services edition.)

  • Conflicts of Interest – In the 2009 versions and later of QuickBooks you have the ability to do advanced searches quickly and easily within your customer list.
