Quicken & Other Budget/Accounting Software/change Item Type
Hello, I have quickbooks pro 2012 and trying to clean up my Item list and make corrections, under the type of item, I have only 3 options, Service, non inventory part or other charge.
it seems I can change the Type if it was non inven part and change it to service (a box does come up that says you cant do it but them I click, I think ok and it does change it.), but if it is service I can not change it to non inven part, the type box is shaded out so cant even click on it.
any help much appreciated !
Unfortunately, QuickBooks does not permit you to change from a service item to any other type item.
The best you can do is to edit the service item
1. add a few characters to let you know NOT to
use it again (I will either put a Z in front of the item name or a DNU at the end to represent Do not use)
2. Make that item inactive
3. Set up a new item in the right type (noninventory or other charge)
Hope this helps
