Does anyone know if you can customize QB invoices and estimates so that you will have seperate subtotals for materials (sales) and labor (services).

I'm looking for a way but I don't see it yet. Try asking here.

I don't think (not 100%) that you can have separate subtotals. Excuse me for asking, but why?

I itemize my invoices. I have items for labor and materials. I or the customer could easily total those individually with a calculator.

I dont want to list individual charges for say mulch, labor, stone etc... I want the copy the customer sees (invoice or estimate) to show a total for material and labor with quantity and description of what the are getting. The individual charges can be listed on the screen. I know you can select screen/print for most items, just not sure if it is possible to have say 2 seperate sections with there own sub-totals

Actually you can. If you go to create an item you can create any type of subtotal that you want. It would look something like this:
02/07/05 Mulch 50.00
02/07/05 Stone 75.00
02/07/05 Shrubs 100.00
Subtotal for materials 225.00
02/07/05 Labor: 6 hours 275.00
Subtotal 500.00
Tax (7.5%) 37.50
Total 537.50

But remember you have to go to the item list an create it. On the the drop down menu choose subtotal as the type of item, and you can name it whatever you want like Subtotal for materials.

Saweeet, Thanks !!!! :blob3:

But..... In order to show the subtotal amount I must show amounts of all the other items, which goes against what I am trying to do. Bummer.

Do the materials on one invoice and the labor on another invoice and then print a statement.
