How to export "Item History" from Inventory Item Detail?

We would like to know if there is a way to run a report, or mass export, the data found in the "Item History" section of the "Inventory Item Detail" screen.  The key component needed from this is to show on exactly what date we ran out of stock of something.  In fact, the end goal is to determine for how many days in a given year we were out of stock of a given set of products.  Has anyone else run across something similar, or tried to locate similar information?

Answer

@IntuitMaryJoy,

I'm very sorry for taking such a long time to follow up to this response.  I have just now only had a chance to revisit this question.  Unfortunately, there is no way to do what you suggested, which was:

"From your Inventory Item Detail screen, you can export the list to Excel to generate the report that you need"

There is no way to export that Item History straight to excel for a given product. 

More importantly, however, we are really wanting to get to the end goal of determining how many days in a given timeframe (for example a year) were we out of stock of a given product (or set of products).  This information would be amazingly useful to us.  Any help would be appreciated!

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.
