Example of Create an ItemService Item

Note: VB Demo is deprecated.

Please refer to How to use the QODBC Test Tool for testing

Note: This is an example of how to add a new ItemService ItemYou can also use the stored procedure "sp_lastinsertid ItemService" immediately after the insert statement to retrieve a record set that has the ListID of the new service item you just inserted.

Query in QODBC

     INSERT INTO ItemService
     ("Name", "IsActive", "SalesORPurchaseDesc",
     "SalesTaxCodeRefListID", "SalesOrPurchasePrice", "SalesOrPurchaseAccountRefListID")
     ('Priority Support', TRUE, 'QODBC Priority Support Incident',
     '10000-1011136881', 33.00, '20000-896814722')

 QODBC Support Wizard is used to test QODBC SQL queries only and is not a development tool.


Result in QuickBooks

     Once the statement above is executed, the following new Service appeared in QuickBooks 2006:

Unique Item Name

     But before you add any new Service Items, you should check the ITEM table first to see if the new Service Item Name is not already used in QuickBooks.

     The ITEM table is a combined list of all Item tables in QuickBooks:

     ItemInventory, ItemNonInventory, ItemOtherCharge, ItemInventoryAssembly, ItemService, ItemFixedAsset, and ItemGroup (with minimum common fields)

     When inserting a new ItemService item, the Name can't already be, for example, an ItemInventory, ItemNonInventory, ItemOtherCharge, ItemInventoryAssembly, ItemService, ItemFixedAsset, or ItemGroup FullName already. It must be a unique new ITEM FullName!

Locate Item FullName

     To see the item FullName, you can run the following query in VB Demo:

     SELECT ListID, FullName, Description, Type FROM Item

     In my case, QuickBooks 2022 USA sample file returned the following items:

ENTITY Table Related

     And like ITEM, there's an ENTITY table that's the combined list of all entity tables in QuickBooks:

     Customers, Employees, Other names, and Vendors (with minimum common fields)

     So when inserting a new Customer name, the FullName can't be, for example, a Customer, Employee, Other names, or Vendor already. It must be a unique new ENTITY FullName in QuickBooks!
