Using Account Numbers

QuickBooks doesn't automatically display account numbers for your company's accounts, but that doesn't mean the numbers aren't there. In the background, QuickBooks has assigned account numbers for all your starting accounts. You can accept these numbers or change them. When you add accounts, you can assign any number you want. Your account numbers can be up to seven characters long and can contain a combination of letters and numbers.

Use Account Numbers

Turn on account numbering by selecting Edit, Preferences, and selecting Accounting in the Preferences window.

Click the Company Preferences tab, and then check the Use Account Numbers option to make account numbering available for your company.

Click OK to save this change.

View account numbers by pressing Ctrl+A to open the Chart of Accounts window.

Add or change an account number by clicking the account name, and then pressing Ctrl+E to edit the account. Or you can click the account name, click the Account button at the bottom of the Chart of Accounts window, and select Edit Account from the menu.

Enter the account number for this account.

Click OK to save the new account number.
