FAQ:Why Can’t I Use the “Location” Field In The QuickBooks Item List?

| May 21, 2010 | 0 Comments

If you customize the columns that are displayed in the item list you will see a field named location. Everyone gets excited when they see this – locations in QuickBooks! However, this is misleading. You cannot use this field in normal items, so it is always blank. It actually is a field that is used in fixed asset items, which aren’t shown in this list. For some reason several of the fields that are set aside for fixed asset items show as columns. Sorry!

It gets really confusing if you create a custom field called location – you have to make sure you choose the right one to add to the list display
