I want to find out what material is being sold from one year to the next so we can dispose of items that are not moving. Is there a report you can recommend?

I am looking for a report to run that shows what material was used from the last time we did inventory to now.


Hi, Pam2827.

Thank you for posting here in the Community. I'm here to help you pull up a certain report that shows what material was used. 

You can run a Sales by Customer Detail report. It'll show you materials that has been sold. To do so, please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to your Reports menu.
  2. Select Sales, then click Sales by Customer Detail.
  3. Click on the Customize Report button. 
  4. Go to your Filters tab and choose Material.

You can also check this Multiple Inventory Sites article for more information about keeping track of your inventory. 

    That’s it. Let me know if you need further help generating the report. I’m always here to assist. Enjoy the rest of the week.

    People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
