We have just purchased and are setting up Quickbooks Desktop Enterprise. We are currently using Sage 50. We will be using Fishbowl to handle the items, inventory, sales and purchasing and will export back to Quickbooks to handle the invoicing and payments. I have done a Sage 50 to Quickbooks conversion and everything worked pretty well except for the inventory items it imported into Quickbooks. I do not really need to import any items into Quickbooks as I will export them from Sage to a csv, modify them as needed and then inport to Fishbowl. Is there a reasonable way to import everything into Quickbowl except the items? Or is there an easy way to get rid of items once they are in Quickbooks. We have about 62,000 items but only about 12,000 are actively used but I will put most or all of the 62,000 in Fishbowl for information use.
Thank you for choosing QuickBooks as your accounting software, @jk20191.
Since you’re using a 3rd-party app to handle items, inventories, sales, and purchases, you can remove the imported list in QuickBooks Desktop one at a time.
Deleting several items or the entire list at once is currently unavailable. I suggest leaving it as it is for now until you’re ready to perform the manual process. Please check out this article to know more: Add, edit, and delete items.
Yes, you can remove the items if it's already imported in QuickBooks. I can walk you through in doing do.
Please take note that deleting multiple items at a time nor the entire item list is not yet available. What you can do is delete the items one at a time.. Also, you can't delete items that are part of an inventory assembly. However, you can inactivate them.
To delete an item, here's how:
Go to the Lists menu.
Choose Item List.
Highlight the item you want to delete.
Press Ctrl + D on your keyboard.
