How to log sub items
A new Zelda game is coming out for Nintendo Switch. Joe runs a GameStop store. He sells Nintendo Switch systems and the controllers. Joe needs to know how many controllers to buy. He uses QuickBooks Enterprise, but the weekly sales numbers are incorrect. The first table represents what happened.
|Order Number||Order Item||Qty|
|124||Switch System (System, Controller||1 System and 1 Controller|
The second table is what QuickBooks records:
In his QuickBooks, the system says he sold 1 controller instead of 2.
The controller is part of another bundle called Nintendo Switch accessories. If Joe's controller numbers are incorrect, he is unsure how many bundles he can build. The controller is part of two bundles:
|Switch System||System, 1 Controller|
|Nintendo Switch Accessories||1 Controller, 1 Carrying Case|
QuickBooks assumes that bundled item components are only sold as part of a bundle. In this case, Joe sells controllers separately. Because his controller is part of a kit, QuickBooks assumes he cannot sell a controller separately. Since Joe cannot accurately predict his sales, he cannot order enough controllers. Joe is unable to predict how many bundles of Nintendo Switch accessories to build.
