Item Multi-Packs in Sage 50
How do you use item multi-packs in Sage 50? What are item multi-packs in Sage 50 used for?
The Item Multi-Packs window allows you to assign additional units/measures to an inventory item, thereby creating a multi-pack. You can access this window by selecting the U/M button, which is located next to the Stocking U/M field in the Maintain Inventory Items window. In the Item Multi-Packs window, you can do the following:
- change the Stocking U/M
- allow items to be purchased or sold in a unit/measure other than the Stocking U/M, or multi-pack
- assign a U/M, weight, and UPC/SCC code for multi-packs that you purchase
- assign a U/M, weight, and UPC/SCC code for multi-packs that you sell
You can assign two units/measures in addition to the Stocking U/M to an inventory item: one for purchases and one for sales. When you purchase or sell items in units/measures that you have set up in Maintain Units/Measures, the subsequent item, when purchased or sold, is referred to as a multi-pack. Multi-Packs in Sage 50 are simply any inventory item that has been assigned a unit/measure other than the Stocking U/M. The resulting item, usually a box or a pack, contains more than one stocking unit of the inventory item.
Because you can only assign two units/measures to an inventory item, you should select the unit/measure in which you usually purchase or sell the item. For example if you buy in bulk but sell in single units, select the bulk unit in this window. After you have assigned purchasing and sales units/measures to an inventory item, you will be able to select the U/M for line items on the following windows: Quotes, Sales Orders, Sales/Invoicing, Receipts, Credit Memos, Select For Purchase Orders, Purchase Orders, Purchase/Receive Inventory, and Payments.
