Hi, just started using QB online and am having a problem inputting stock items. The problem is to do with the 'Name' field. I have an engineering business and for example, I might sell 50 different types of gaskets with different part numbers. So, I've been trying to input different gaskets in the stock control section and have tried using the word 'Gasket' in the name field, the part number in the 'Item/Service Code field and lets say 'Water pump gasket, in the 'description' field.
The problem is it won't let me use the same name, again lets say 'gasket' in multiple entries. So, how do list multiple items with the same generic name, 'Gasket' or 'Spark Plug' but with different part numbers?
Sorry if this sounds a bit basic but any help much appreciated.
