I love that you're using the assembly item feature available in QuickBooks Desktop and it's equally awesome to see that you've chosen the Enterprise edition of the software to manage your books. Both of these are great options for staying on top of inventory and I can appreciate the use of reviewing the bill of materials for the active assembly items. I can help you with this.
The way to view the bill of materials for an assembly items takes a few steps, but they're fairly simple once you know them. Here's what you can do.
Choose Item List.
Double-click the assembly item.
Depending on what you choose in the print window, you'll be left with a printed copy of the bill of materials for that particular assembly item or, if you have it, you can use the Print to PDF option to get a PDF copy of the information.
At this time, there isn't a report that shows these details, nor is there a way to print for more than one assembly item at a time. This means going into each of the active items and following those steps as needed.
If you have a lot of assembly items, I know this could take up extra time in your workday. I recommend sharing your feedback with our product development team by going to the QuickBooks Desktop Help menu and then choosing Send Feedback Online. This process lets that team know what users are looking for when it comes to using the program and many suggestions made in the past have become features in the program today.
Your voice matters to us, so don't be afraid to share you feedback. I'm also here if you have further questions about the option that is available.
