If you organize your inventory on shelves, bins, or other areas, you can
create custom fields in QuickBooks to help you identify where your inventory is
located. This is particularly useful if you store the same item in multiple
locations in your warehouse. For example, you may store a few units of a
popular item in one location that is easy to access, and keep the remainder of
the item somewhere else.
Go to the Mfg & Whsle menu and click Item List.
In the Item List window, double-click an existing inventory item to edit it
or create a new item.
Click the Custom Fields button.
Click Define Fields button.
In the next available custom field, select Use.
In the Label field, enter the name of the field. For example: Shelf,
When you create or update inventory items, click the Custom Fields button
and enter the proper data there as well.
If you want to assign a location to your existing items, open each item in
your Item list and click the Custom Fields button.
