    I've been trying to use quickbooks for my solution....still unable to find a good way to use it with what i'm doing. My main issue is the fact that I can't have one main item and sell that item in different packages by amounts. I can do it that way but it won't deduct from main amount. Any ideas? I've looked at fishbowl but i don't think it can do what i need it to.
    So basicly say if i have a total of 200 units of a product and i sell like 25 of these for some odd amount i want that to be a seperate product and deduct from the main amount. Also while keeping track of how many of that type i've sold.
    I'm stumped.

    Peachtree works well for doing inventory.

    You need Database software. Access has an inventory template you can try out if you have Microsoft Office w/ Access installed.

    Access is great for small businesses...

    Quickbooks should do what you are trying to accomplish. I've use it for inventory.

    What version of Quickbooks? I thought the newer ones added the ability to handle that.
