Categories are used in the item setup and are a
strictly optional function. This
option is helpful to group items together as well as used when you
search for an item since you can search for items in the invoicing,
quoting and order entry functions by category or vendor.
SELECT ITEMS/INVENTORY THEN SELECT ITEM
Use the new category button to add a category
and the edit and delete buttons to edit and delete categories.
The system will warn you if you are deleting
a category that is used in a item record.
If you edit a category, all items with that category will also
be changed to the new category.
