In QBPOS 12 how can I get the "Comments" field from the Inventory Item Detail screen into an Excel File?

I get similar items from multiple vendors, and have put the alt vendor sku in the Comments field. At first I did not want to use the ALU field, but now I want to.


Let me help you generate the file that you need, jdarrigo70.

When customizing your Inventory Item Detail screen to get the Comments field, you'll have to manually manage the mapping to match the details to be exported from your QuickBooks Desktop account. 

To further assist you in this, I suggest reaching out to QuickBooks Point of Sale support. They can assist you with the  process in a safe and secure environment.

Check the following link to contact our Technical Support: Intuit QuickBooks Desktop & Point-of-Sale software support policies.

Let me know how the call goes and if you have other concern about your POS account, by leaving a comment below. 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.
