I know why you're getting this message, camasc26.

 

This warning appears if the date on the transaction you're trying to create comes before the As of date of the inventory item. Please ensure that the date of the transaction is the same date when you started tracking the quantity on hand of this item.

 

To verify the date, you can refer to these steps:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Under Lists, select Products and Services.
  3. Find the item that you're trying to use on the transaction.
  4. Click Edit in the far right.
  5. In the Product/Service information page, go to the Quantity on hand section.
  6. Click the Starting value link and click Got it! when prompted.
  7. In the new window, verify the As of date.
  8. If it's wrong, you can change it. If it's correct, then leave it as it is and click Save and close.

Here's an article that talks more about the inventory overview and its setup.

 

I'll be here if you have additional questions. Thanks for dropping by.

Thanks for bringing your concern to our attention and for joining in on the thread, Tom99.

 

Yes, you cannot enter transactions with dates earlier than the Starting date of the inventory item you want to use. We can change the Starting value for you to be able to enter the transaction using the inventory item. Note that doing this will affect the initial value of your inventory. Here's how to do it:

  1. Click Sales on the left menu and go to the Products and Services tab.
  2. Look for the inventory item and click Edit.
  3. In the Product/Service information window, click the Starting value hyperlink.
  4. Click Got it! and it will route you to the Inventory Starting Value page.
  5. Change the As of date and other inventory details if necessary.
  6. Click Save and close.

You can use this article for reference when setting up an inventory item: Set up and track your inventory in QuickBooks Online.

 

After that, you can already enter the transaction you need to record.

 

You can always get back to us if you need additional assistance with your inventory. Have a great day!
