An assembly build that was final (completed), may have the status changed to pending if the following occurred:
Because an assembly build cannot be finalized without sufficient quantities on hand of all components in the build, the above sequence of events, and the resulting insufficient inventory quantities, causes the assembly build to switch to a pending status. QuickBooks, however, does not issue a warning.
Important: The following solution may cause a discrepancy in your books if your assembly build and customer sales dates will conflict by making the suggested change. You may want to consult with your accountant, or another accounting professional, to determine if this solution will work for you.
If you do not have sufficient inventory quantities for both the memorized sales transaction and the assembly build, determine if some items that were purchased were not entered in QuickBooks, or if more items need to be purchased. Inventory and purchasing reports, found on the QuickBooks Reports menu, can assist in making this determination. If inventory was purchased but not recorded in QuickBooks, enter the necessary transactions to update the quantity on hand amounts. Remember, though, that the transaction dates are important. The items must be in inventory before the build date. If necessary, you can change the build date to match the date when you have enough quantity on hand for each assembly component.
Note: If you need to purchase additional inventory, consider the date the new inventory will be recorded in QuickBooks when determining a new build date, and please review the important notice above. To change the build date:
