    How can I edit an existing inventory group

    • Morning Indira,

      The inventory groups are created under the same area – setup… inventory… integration tab.
      You populate the grid, using GL accounts, and sub-accounts if you need to drill down/break down the accounts.
      This will then show in the group list under edit… inventory… item file…
