Good Morning!

  I am considering options and so looking for ideas from you all the experienced Guru.
At present i use regular quickbooks desk top, and find i want to use for myself a BOM bill of materials.
I have several scattered ideas between excel and possibly linking this to invoices.
But if nothing else i need to or would like using an attachment option available to the invoice.

Im not sure what else i can say here to raise a conversation on this, so is there any thoughts on this  subject lately.

Floyd,
  A BOM sounds like inventory would be needed in QB. I have never used inventory except to play with it once or twice but I would think if you set it up you should be able to get a BOM report on an invoice as long as you include all components in that invoice.

I hope at the end of the year I deposited enough to stay in the black.  Breaking it down sounds like more work that there isn't time for. 
My cousin does my books so I'm lucky - he makes a spread sheet of every thing that comes from my business - I never thought about breaking down each job -

I'm not sure what you are wanting to do. You said "...i want to use for myself a BOM bill of materials."If you are wanting to keep track of inventory for yourself then Paul's suggestion of using Inventory in QB is the way I would go.

Is this something you are going to include on Invoices to customers? Are you thinking of buying and then reselling stuff?

I like to keep it simple by using as few software programs as I can. If you can do what you want on QB that saves you from having to use a spreadsheet.
