About the "Add Item" option

The Add Item option is available when you are entering a transaction in the Sales Order Processing or Purchase Order Processing modules. To select this option in Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 or in Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains 8.0, click Extras , point to Options , and then click Add Item . To select this option in Microsoft Great Plains 7. x , click Options , and then click Add Item .

If the Add Item option is selected, you can take any one of the following actions every time that you enter a new item in the Purchase Order Processing or Sales Order Processing modules:

• Create a new inventory item
• Create a new vendor item
• Enter a non-inventoried item
