Unable to change item type in QuickBooks for Mac

An item type can be changed only if the item is a non-inventory part or other charge item. These two types can only be changed to service, non-inventory part, other charge, or inventory part item types.

How to fix it
To change a non-inventory part or other charge item type:
  1. From the QuickBooks Lists menu, choose Items.
  2. Locate and double-click the item you want to change to access the Edit Item window.
  3. From the Type list, choose the new item type.
  4. If you are changing the type to an Inventory Part, you must specify the Asset account and COGS account.
  5. (Optional) Enter other information about the changed item.
    Note: If you are changing the item to an Inventory Part, the date you enter in the As of field for the total value of the item must be a date that is later than the date of the last transaction using the item. This helps ensure that the on-hand count is correct.
  6. Click OK.
Note: Because only non-inventory parts or other charge items can be changed to other item types, they cannot always be changed back. For example, if a non-inventory part is changed to an inventory part, it cannot be changed back.
