Purchasing of Non-Inventory, Supply Items

    Hello,

    Is there an option to purchase a service/GL supply item via a "part number" so that the description and cost pulls in automatically by typing the "part number" but no inventory would be created?

    Thanks,
    Kurt

    Kurt,

    Non-Inventory is available as a type in Business Central.

    In NAV, "Type" with the options of Inventory and Service has existed for several versions though the field was not visible by default on the Item Card in the North American localization. Service and Non-inventory types do not create item ledger entries.

    Thanks Cynthia--  That worked the way we hoped.

    Another question along those lines;  After I setup the Item, can I assign the Vendor's price to that item and vendor's supply item such that when I create a Purchase Order for that Vendor and Item, the price automatically get updated on the PO Line?

    Thanks again,
    Kurt

    Kurt,

    Pricing will apply, but remember that NAV/BC has a "best price" hierarchy when it comes to pricing.

    On each item card, there are additional options to setup vendor pricing. You can have multiple vendor's pricing for a single item. These prices are date driven. There is also a cross reference where you can define your vendor's part numbers.'

    PS, are you located close to DFW airport?
