Inventory Item - Quantity on Hand
« on: September 29, 2015, 07:33:07 AM »
I am using ItemInventoryAdd to move Inventory Items from FileMaker to Quickbooks.  I was using the QuantityOnHand to get the Item Quantity in to Quickbooks.   My client is not happy with the fact that this process creates an adjustment transaction in QB when it add the quantity. 

Is there another way that I can get the Item quantity in the system without an adjustment being created?

You can't add items to your Inventory (which is an Asset) without recording the increase in Inventory value. You could aggregate/assemble Items from other Items without changing the value of your Inventory, but that's not what you described.

The other alternative is to Receive the Items on a Vendor Bill--it still adds their value to Inventory, but it has a different path in the Audit Trail.
