Quickbooks is a little more complex in developing a invoice because they require the use of an item. If for example you wanted to create a subtotal in an invoice, you have to create a subtotal item to be able to do this.
In this article I am going to outline the process of how to create a subtotal item:
Step 1. Select the Lists menu and then choose Item List from the drop down menu.
Step 2. From the Item button at the bottom of the Item Lists dialog box, choose the New button to create a new item.
Step 3. In the New Item dialog box, select Subtotal from the Type drop down box.
Step 4. Using the tab key, move into the Item Name/Number field and add the text, Subtotal.
Step 5. Press the tab key again and type in the text, Subtotal into the description field.
Step 6. Finally press the OK button.
This means that you have now created the subtotal item in your items list which you can now use in your invoices.Chris Le Roy
