For QuickBooks Pro, Premier and Enterprise Solutions 2011 (and earlier):
For Enterprise Solutions 2012 (and later) with Advanced Inventory enabled:
Enterprise Solutions 2013 (and later) with Advanced Inventory enabled incorporates barcodes and barcode scanning seamlessly into your company file. Turning on the barcode scanning preference in Advanced Inventory and using the Barcode Wizard gives you the option of either moving your existing barcodes into QuickBooks into the new Barcode Number field for any or all of your items, or having QuickBooks create barcodes for items in your item list. You can also manually enter barcodes into the Barcode Number field through the Edit Item window.
Once the barcodes are entered into the company file for your items, you can then scan an item or serial number from a product or printed list of barcodes into most transactions and QuickBooks will enter the data into the right fields on the item line of the form. Scan the same item again to increase the quantity.
To turn on barcode scanning in Enterprise Solutions 2012 (and later) with Advanced Inventory:
QuickBooks has now entered the barcodes into your company file.
