 +====== Unexpected Profitability Values ======
  
 +**Problem**
 +
 +When running the Profitability report there are categories showing large values that do not make sense.
 +
 +**Solution**
 +
 +The Profitability report will be generated with attention to the ledger numbers that do not meet our expected profitability numbers. ​ Most businesses have margins for each of their category lines, if the margins do not fall within the expected margin range then the profitability numbers will need to be investigated.
 +
 +To investigate profiability,​ run the Profitability report and check for the cost or income ledger numbers that are out of the expected range. ​ Use the List Transactions by G/L number report to list the Cost or Income ledgers for the date the profitability report was generated. ​ The List Transactions by G/L report will show the invoice numbers which we can use to investiate the invoices further.
 +
 +The video below will demonstrate using the techniques mentioned above to investigate Profitability anomalies.
