Hi there, Professional Amateur. 


Thanks for dropping by the Community this afternoon. The report you're looking for to show item quantity is called a assembly shortage report. Unfortunately, you can only run this report in our QuickBooks Enterprise product. If you want to check it out and consider upgrading you can check out this link, it highlights all the features included in enterprise as-well-as how to upgrade. However, if you don't want to upgrade you can run a inventory stock status by item report. 


You can find more information on that report and much more information in the following link:

If there's anything else I can help with, feel free to post here night or day. Thank you for your time and have a nice afternoon.

What about the Qnty needed column in my build screen? Why doesn’t it populate so I can compare qntys need there?

You may be experiencing some data issues, Professional Amateur.


We can fix this by running the Verify and Rebuild steps. 


Here's how to verify:


  1. Choose Window then Close All.
  2. Verify Data. Choose File then Utilities. Select Verify Data. If you see:
    • QuickBooks detected no problems with your data no further action is needed.
    • A specific error message, there may already be an article for it. Try searching for it in our QuickBooks Desktop support site for specific instructions.
    • Your data has lost integrity indicates there is data damage in the file. Continue to the steps below to Rebuild Data to correct the problem.


I've also added this article for more information when creating Assemblies: Track The Products You Manufacture.


I'm just around if there's anything that I can help. Keep safe!
