Can't seem to fix an old error  

When I create an inventory item, I assign it a "reference ID" that tells me my source for that item. Usually I use a three digit number, but some of them are names. Then I can look at the "Profit Report by Reference ID" and see how much money I've brought in from each purchase.

But on one item I goofed, and a book that should be Reference ID "Crowder" was given Reference ID "007". I just caught this error earlier this evening.

How do I fix this, five months after the sale? I tried going back to the original inventory item and changing the Reference ID, and also changed it in the auction lot. But the info on the profit report didn't change to reflect my corrections. So I backed up, then rebuilt the database. Still no change on the profit report.

What do I do next, or do I just have to live with this goof?

Thanks

HI

Change the Reference Id on the related Auction lots. That field is not Hot. Meaning changing the reference ID information on the Inventory item does not change the Reference ID information on the Auction lots.

Be sure to click the "Post Changes" checkmark on the toolbar after making the changes.

Does that help?

OK, fixed now.

I re-did the change on the auction lot, then clicked the "Post Changes" button ( I didn't know about that.) But when I looked at the profit report, it wasn't fixed.

Then I thought perhaps I can do the same thing to the invoice. So I made the change there, and checked the "post Changes" and now it's fixed.

Thanks!!

HI

Well now am I brain dead or what. I am so sorry I failed to include changing the information on the Invoice.

I swear I need a new brain some days..

I am so glad that you have figured it out..
