Hey Bob! I’m not quite sure where exactly you see this in QuickBooks. However, when you enter a payment from a customer, QuickBooks will post a debit to Cash and a Credit to the Accounts Receivable account. If it would help, email a screenshot to me at email@example.com and I can take a look at it for you.
Thanks for checking out our QuickBooks videos!
All the Best-
