Hello,

 

If you mean when you create the inventory item and it asks for "Initial QTY On Hand", have you tried entering a 0?  (zero)

Hello there, chathuranga.
 

You'll want to enter zero in the box. You can increase the quantity at a later time.
 

You can browse through this article for future reference in Creating Inventory Quantity or Value.

 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to post again. Have a blissful day!

Then it appears error message as "As of date for initial Quantity on hand is required."

Hi chathuranga.


Thank you for keeping in touch with us. Fields that has asterisks on them require information. An error would prompt if no entry is recorded. 

 

Aside from entering zero in the Initial quantity on hand you also need to enter a date from the past in the As of date field.
