Kits Tab of the Inventory Screen

In this Topic: Show


The Kits tab of the Inventory screen is one of two places in the program that a Kit SKU can be defined. The other place is at the Define Kits screen which is opened by selecting Kits on the Inventory & Supplier tab of the Maintenance Menu. Both interfaces are quite similar, as one might expect.

For more information about Kits, please refer to the Knowledge Base topic, Define Kits Screen.

Click the Show link next to "In This Topic" at the top of this page to see a series of links in outline form, which can be used to quickly jump to that section of the topic.

In addition, major topics may provide a brief synopsis of a field's purpose or direct the reader to the appropriate section of the topic by scrolling over the image. To return to the previous location within the same page, right-click the mouse and select [Back].

If clicking a field directs the reader to a different Knowledge Base topic, it will open in a new tab or window, leaving the currently viewed topic open. The browser's settings determine whether a new tab or window is opened.
