Customer Return + Credit Memo problem

I posted this to the Peachtree Users web forum, but I'll do it here too to double my chances of getting some help :)
Had a customer order some product about 8 months ago. The invoice was paid. I have no open invoice for this customer any more. He's all paid up and current.
Got a call from that customer a few days ago and he asked if he could return the product. It was a for a customer of his who later decided he couldn't use it. (I sell to wholesalers) Normally I wouldn't take a return that old, but this is a pretty good customer, so we agreed that I'd apply it as a credit against future purchases.
I went to the Credit Memo screen, entered in the amount of product returned, filled out everything, and applied it to sales. (Since Invoice was greyed out, I assume because he currently has no outstanding unpaid invoices)
Now, however, the credit memo is showing up in my Aged Receivables as a negative amount.
This isn't a HUGE problem, but it does somewhat annoy me because (to me) the A/R is for showing my RECEIVABLE by age. Not receivables minus outstanding credits that may or may not be taken/used any time soon.
As it stands now, (and these numbers are for purposes of discussion only), say I have $10K in outstanding invoices, the A/R screen is showing that MINUS the $1K credit memo for a total of $9K outstanding. No big deal, I can mentally do the math to see that even though peachtree shows a total of $9K, I really have $10K in outstanding invoices. (For clarification, none of these outstanding invoices are related to the customer I did the credit memo for, these are all different customers)
But, what if, at some future date, I had ten or fifteen, or even fifty credit memos outstanding? I would have to do a lot of math to figure out what I'm owed since peachtree is messing it all up by subtracting my liablilites. I am interested in seeing the totals of my outstanding RECEIVABLES, not receivables minus credit memos.
Is there perhaps a different way I could handle this? I certainly want to keep track of the credit memos, but when I run my A/R report I am interested in seeing totals of the outstanding invoices. Perhaps a different report? Or maybe I need to do some sort of a custom report?
If anyone could help or offer some insight, I'd be most grateful.
Thanks in advance!

You should be able to exclude credit memos from you receivables report, click preview before you run it and select "no" next credit memos in the filter tab.
I hope this helps.

Yeah, I got that answer on the Peachtree Users forums. However, thanks for the tip here. I appreciate it!
On an unrelated note, if you are using your real email address here in usenet, I'd advise against it, or at least munge it up a bit, spammers collect email addresses from here (usenet) regularly.
