Inventory question

Hi,
I'm starting an inventory section and need to know if I enter a "case"
of a product, and there are "2 boxes per case" , will QB allow me to sell
these separately and still be able to keep track of the sales and inventory?
I know it's a pretty stupid question but I've never done inventory before.
If my purchase order says X no. of cases, can I sell by the box? Thanks for
the help.

Its not a great solution but you can use group items to buy and sell in
different UM's. Set up your boxes as your item and a group item for cases.
The group item will consist of the the boxes item with a quantity of 2.

Thanks Karl, that's what I've done but just wanted to see if there was
another way to do it.

I'm using 2002 Pro. Thanks for trying to help.

QB Pro 2003 allows multiple units of measurement without the necessity
of using Group Items.

OR you can just enter the number of individual items in each case as
your purchase quantity.

Using your example, set up the item units as "each" and enter prices
for the individual quantity. When you order 5 cases at 2 items/case,
enter 10 units on your purchasing document and cost per unit. Then you
can sell individually. Saves an item listing and prevents confusion in
the future.
