Calculating total units and total weights natively...


Enterprise user for five years plus. And 3rd-party is STILL the only option for calculating total units and total weights within a Sales Order and/or Invoice transaction? Or did I not click a box somewhere...




Calculating total units and total weights natively...

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, AA @AcmeAdict.


The ability to calculate total units and weights withing sales orders and invoices is currently unavailable in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) Enterprise.


I can how having this option would be helpful for you and your business. Rest assured that I'll pass along your suggestion to our Product Developers. They're always looking for ideas to consider on how to improve QuickBooks.


In the meantime, I recommend visiting our blog site. This is where we share recent happenings and future developments, such as updates to newly added features. Here's the link:


Please leave a comment in this thread if you have any other concerns. I'll be more than willing to help. Have an amazing rest of the day!

Calculating total units and total weights natively...

Yep, I think you're correct. The two main 3rd party solutions I know of are FormCalc SST for QuickBooks and CCRQInvoice.  Are there others?

Calculating total units and total weights natively...

I've tried FormCalc and CCRQ and didn't continue with either as they were, let's say, clumsy. It just seems to me like any version of Quickbooks NOT having a simple native calculator for weights and units is like Microsoft Word not having a spell check.


Don't get me wrong, I think Enterprise is exceptional accounting software and Intuit, in general, is a stellar company. I just don't get why I have to 3rd-party for a feature that's available in $20 bookkeeping rags I can pick up at Office Max.
