Inventory Adjustment

Hello Everyone,

 

We are currently in the process of switching from a different accounting software to QuickBooks Premier 2019.

 

The issue that I'm having is that some of the inventory parts were entered with a 0 balance, when in actuality we had some on hand, and now I'm looking to correct that mistake. As far as I know you can change inventory in 3 different ways: you can receive the inventory with or without a bill, or you can make an inventory adjustment. I'm almost positive that I don't want to receive the inventory, so it looks like I'm looking at inventory adjustment.

 

My problem is then that I'm not sure exactly what my adjustment account should be. I'm pretty sure that I don't want it to be an income or expense as I don't think I'd want it to show up on the Profit and Loss report, but QuickBooks warns me about this when I choose Inventory Asset. Do I not actually want to adjust it using this account? What would be a better account if I don't want to use that one?

Thanks, I didn't mean to create a duplicate. The first time I posted it, it said my post was rejected, so I thought maybe I had placed it in the wrong section.
