Setting Reports and Graphs Preferences

Make some basic decisions up front about how your reports and graphs should appear and you won't have to think about these choices every time you open a report. Each QuickBooks user at your company can set personal report preferences. Company-wide preferences, such as text formatting and the way numbers appear, affect reports accessible by all users.

Set Personal Reports and Graphs Preferences

Select Preferences from the Edit menu.

Click the Reports & Graphs icon.

Click the My Preferences tab.

Check here if you always want the customizing options to appear when you view reports.

Select a refresh option to indicate whether you want a report to update automatically when you make a change.

Check Draw Graphs in 2D (faster) if you like your graphs in two-dimensional style instead of the default three-dimensional.

Check Use Patterns to produce graphs in shades of black, gray, and white instead of full color. This is the best choice if you plan to print graphs on a black-and-white printer.

Click OK, or see the next task to set additional preferences.
