Creating Subitems

You might have noticed that when you set up a new item, customer, vendor, or account, you can designate that the item is a subitem, a lower-level item under a parent, or leader item. If you didn't designate the sub-status when you first entered the information, you can do so at any time. Open the appropriate list and simply drag the item to its new parent, and then drag to indent.

one.jpg Open a list. This example uses the Chart of Accounts list. You can open this list quickly by pressing Ctrl+A.
two.jpg Place your mouse pointer over the diamond to the left of the item that is to become the subitem. The mouse pointer turns into a black four-sided arrow.
three.jpg Drag the mouse pointer so that the item is located directly beneath the item that will be its parent. A dashed horizontal black line appears where the item is to move. In this example, subitems can only be placed with other Accounts of the same type.
four.jpg Release the mouse pointer.
five.jpg Again, place your mouse pointer over the diamond to the left of the item that is to become the subitem.
six.jpg Drag the mouse pointer slightly to the right. A dashed vertical black line appears where the item is to move.
seven.jpg Release the mouse pointer. The item is now indented beneath its parent.
