Credit card charge on invoice

I added a charge to an invoice off the expense list. Then I erased the invoice (just practicing). Now the charge no longer shows up on the expense list and I can't add it to a new invoice. Additionally, is there a way to see what category the expense is when trying to add it to an invoice?

Answer

I'm not really clear what you did.

But if you deleted an invoice, you deleted all its line items, and you shouldn't expect to see any affect from those specific line items anywhere.

And every invoice line has a category field; when you add in "Invoice Item" to an invoice, the category you assigned to the item when you created it will appear. If you add an invoice item that has no default category, or you add a line item that is not in the Invoice Item list, the line item category will be blank. In that case, you can select a category from the dropdown.

To create/maintain Invoice Items, see:

Business > Invoices and Estimates > View all Invoice Items.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
