No items showing in Item Register or Inventory Reports

Hi everyone,

 

I have 500-odd items in the data file.  I can see them in Items List.  However, not a single one of them shows up in the Items Register or Inventory Reporting.

 

Any ideas?  This is a new data file.  All items are active.

 

Cheers,

    Hi Alb_Engineering 

     

    I think you have answered your own question. Inventory Reports and Item Registers are for Inventoried Items only.

     

    Regards

    Hi Alb_Engineering,

    Thank you so much for your post and sorry to hear that you were having problems with Item Register Reports. I really appreciate your patience and understanding about this issue, and I do apologize for the delayed response.  As the report won’t run properly without the Show inactive items option being selected, we need to ensure that the option is selected before running the report.

     

    1. Deselect the show inactive Items option
    2. Select the select desired Items
    3. Select show inactive Items option
    4. Click OK
    5. Run the report

    Please do let me know how you go on this.
    Regards,
    Earl

    When you look at the Item Profile tab is the 'I inventory' option ticked? Inventory Reports etc usually only show Items ticked as 'I inventory', and sometimes only if you have stock on hand.

     

    Regards

      Thanks Gavin,

       

      we do not currently inventory our items.  That option is not ticked on any of the items.

        Hi Earl,

         

        Yes, as has been identified, I can't use Inventory reporting or Items Register for any items that are not inventoried.

         

        Makes reporting on items transactions useless in MYOB.  We are thinking of ditching MYOB altogether and going to Xero as a result, or a bespoke solution for the metal manufacturing industry.  MYOB is not great as a stand-alone product without numerous add-ons.

         

        Cheers,

         

        Jason.
