After you create an item, you can edit information about it at any time. If you want to change one item type to another type, however, there are important limitations.
These instructions tell you how to edit items one at a time. If you are editing inventory or service items, you can use another window to add or edit multiple inventory and service items and paste from Excel.
To do this task
Go to the Lists menu and click Item List.
Select the item that you want to change.
Click Item at the bottom of the list and then click Edit Item.
Enter your changes in the Edit Item window, which has different fields depending on which item type you are using.
Why can't I edit certain fields?
If the Type drop-down field is grayed out, you cannot change this item to another type.
For an Inventory Part item, you can't edit the On
Hand field unless you are creating a new item.
The number in the On Hand field is increased or
decreased automatically as you receive inventory
or sell items.
