I purchased some inventory on credit card. I have now received the product and I am trying to put it in QuickBooks. I created a Purchase Order and have also creased an Expense. When I add the PO to the Expense, nothing fills in the line item area. I tried to add a line item in my Expense to my Inventory Asset account but this did not move the inventory items from the PO into actual inventory.
How do I receive inventory and get the items from my PO to show up in inventory?

Thank you for your reply. I followed these steps previously and the items did not appear in the line items of the expense. In the top left hand corner of the expense page, it says 1 linked Purchase Order, but nothing fills in as far as line items.
