Is it possible to copy, move or assign data fields to other data fields for multiple items?

Is it possible to copy, move or assign data fields in the Edit Inventory screen to other fields with multiple items? Specifically I have the Vendor field values I want to put into the Manufacturer field, Size to Scale, etc. then clear the Vendor & Size fields. I had an older version of Quickbooks Point of Sale 8.0 and upgraded to 18.0. With the additional fields in 18.0 I wanted to move date from fields I originally had done to new fields so I could free up the others. In example I have Vendor=Manufacturer, Size=Scale, (I have a hobby shop) and Attribute=Item No.. Now that I actually HAVE Manufacturer, Scale & Item No. fields I want to move the data from the old fields to the new ones so that I can use the Vendor, Size & Attribute fields for something else. I hope this makes sense. Just trying to figure out if it's possible without copy and pasting 3 data fields for each of 22,000 items. Thanks!

I'd like to begin by welcoming you to the Community, @twister25f.

 

You've got me here to address your concern with moving data fields for multiple items in QuickBooks Point of Sale.

 

At this time, being able to move your old items to your new QuickBooks Point of Sale 2018 isn't an option for us. However, you may look for a third party application that will supports this procedure. 

 

I can see how this option would be beneficial to you and your business. QuickBooks aims to provide you the best customer experience. This is why we're constantly uncovering ways to improve our product and services.

 

I'd encourage you to visit our QuickBooks Point of Sale page to be updated with our latest news and updates including newly added features.

 

I've also included here some articles that you can check out about handing inventory items for your future reference:

You can always reach back out to me if there's anything else you need. I'll be around to lend a helping hand. Have a great weekend!

Are you referring to Custom Fields you have set up for Inventory Items?  And are you using the 'Add/Edit Multiple Items' screen to edit your inventory items?
