Limitations for changing item types

You can change an item's type if the item is a noninventory part, an other charge item, or an inventory part. You can change:

  • an Other Charge item to a Service, Noninventory, Inventory Part, or Inventory Assembly item.

    Important: You can't change an Other Charge item to Inventory or Inventory Assembly if you use Advanced Inventory (only available with QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions. Additional fees may apply. For more information visit www.qbes.com/inventory).

  • a Noninventory item to a Service, Other Charge, Inventory Part, or Inventory Assembly item.

    Important: You can't change a noninventory item to a Service, Other Charge, Inventory Part, or Inventory Assembly item if you use Advanced Inventory.

  • an inventory part item to an inventory assembly item.

Inventory and inventory assembly items

  • If you have been tracking what is really an assembly as an inventory part item inside of QuickBooks and tracking the assembly builds outside of QuickBooks, you can change that inventory part item to an assembly item and preserve its transaction history.

  • If you are changing the item to an inventory part or an inventory assembly item, the "as of" date that you enter for the total value of the item must be a date that is after the date of the last transaction that uses the item.

  • Because the types of items that can be changed and what they can be changed to is limited, you cannot always "change an item back" if you change your mind. For example, if you change an other charge item to an inventory part item, you can only change it to an assembly item; you can't change it back to an other charge item.

    After you change an inventory part item to an inventory assembly item, you cannot then change it back to an inventory part item.
