Hey there, bandit1. 

 

Thanks for dropping by the Community today, I'm happy to help. below I'm including the steps for you to assemble your motors in QuickBooks to account for your inventory. Follow along below:

  1. From the Inventory menu, select Build Assemblies.
    Note: Don't see the Inventory menu? Go to Vendors and select Inventory Activities. Then Build Assemblies.
  2. Select the product you want to build from the Assembly Item drop-down.
  3. Check the quantity available for this product at the top. This helps you know how many more you need to build.
    Tip: Quantity available is how many of this product you have on hand, minus what’s ordered by customers and reserved for pending builds.
  4. You can see the list of components you need to build your product. Review the quantity on hand, quantity needed, and other info.
  5. Add the Quantity to Build. The numbers in Qty Needed column gets updated depending on the quantity you want to build.
    Tip: select the "Maximum number you can add to this build on this date" checkbox right at the bottom of your components list. This lets you know how many of this item you can build based on your current stock of components.
  6. If you use another assembly item to build this product, check Automatically build required subassemblies. This lets QuickBooks build the assembly that you also use as a component.
  7. You can add a Memo.
  8. Select Save and Close.

You can find these steps and more information at the following article. 

If you have any other questions, you can also try reaching out to our support team. They can guide you step-by-step on the process above. To reach them you can follow the steps found in our Support hub article

Hi there, bandit1.

 

It looks like there's separate thread with a similar question about zero inventories in your QuickBooks. Let me route you to this link so you can follow the steps given by my colleague: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/en-us/other-questions/inventory/00/752395.

 

I'd also like to share this article just in case you need more guide and reference when preparing your year-end tasks: QuickBooks Desktop Year End Prep and Resources.

Thanks for keeping us updated on how the troubleshooting went through, bandit1.

 

I'm here to share some insights about inventory items. There is no Cost of Good Sold (COGs) or value until there are no sales created from the item. Aside from that, make sure the linked account is right and the purchase date is before the sale date.

 

If the inventory is still missing, let's run the Verify and Rebuild Data utility in the system. The tool scan data issues within the company file and self-resolves them. Make sure to secure a backup of your company file before going through the process. Once done, follow these steps:

 

To verify data:

 

  1. Open the company file.
  2. Click the File tab at the top menu.
  3. Select Utilities.
  4. Choose Verify Data.

For rebuild data:

 

  1. Open the company file.
  2. Click the File tab at the top menu.
  3. Select Utilities.
  4. Choose Rebuild Data.

 

For more information about building assembly, I suggest checking this article Create, Build, and Work with Inventory Assembly Items.

 

Additionally, I've included an article that'll help you learn how to use inventory assembly items to build and track your finished goods. This helps you track your items accurately: Combine your Inventory Items to Build Finished Goods.

 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns about building assembly. This way, we'll be able to help you out.

I have been using QB since 2004, I know how to build assy. What I need help with is where did my inventory go. I created several POs, I received them , I paid for them, They are not showing in my inventory and they have not been sold. The only place they show up is the purchased items report
