How to See Total Sales for One Customer in a Year
Ask the Accountant…
Question: How can I see what the total amount of sales I have made to a customer last year?
Answer: QuickBooks has a great deal of information available to you in report form if you just know where to look. In QB Premier, go to:
"Reports" (at top) > "Sales" > "Sales by Customer Summary" > select dates
This will give you a report of total sales from the specified time period for all of your customers.
If you want a specific customer, from the list of all customer sales, select "Customize Report" > "Filters" > select “Name” on left field > select the customer you want in the middle field. That should do it!
