I'm still haven't solved my original problem of when I enter a sale (item) the cost of the item shows in the PnL as if it's a purchase on that day too.
This is what the Sales Journal looks like

Hi @aaasc, you have stated on another post that your items are set up as "I inventory...".
This looks like normal behaviour for inventoried items. When you record a purchase for any such item, it is allocated to the "asset" account in the item set-up, usually a current asset account in the balance sheet. The purchase should not show up in your COGS accounts, if the item is correctly set up.
When you sell such an item, as part of the sales transaction AccountRight adds two lines which transfer the cost of that line item from the asset account to the nominated "cost of sale" account, crediting/reducing the asset account and debiting/increasing the COGS account.
