Turn on Advanced Inventory in QuickBooks Enterprise

Advanced Inventory tracks inventory stored at different sites or locations. For example, you might store inventory at different warehouses, in multiple trucks, in different areas within a warehouse, at consignment locations, or at outside manufacturers. To use this feature, you must first purchase Advanced Inventory or have a subscription that includes it. 

How to fix it

To Turn on Advanced Inventory:

  1. From the Edit menu, click Preferences.
  2. In the left pane, choose Items & Inventory then click the Company Preferences tab.
  3. Check the Inventory and Purchase Orders are Active box.
  4. Click the Advanced Inventory Settings button. If the button is grayed out even though you have purchased the feature, you will need to sync license data online so that QuickBooks recognizes it.
    1. In QuickBooks, choose Help > Manage my License > Sync License Data Online.
    2. Check that Advanced Inventory Settings is no longer grayed out.
    3. Close and re-open the QuickBooks program.

  1. Run Reboot.bat
  2. Run the Install Diagnostic Tool
