Merging Item Records

How can you merge 2 duplicate inventory item records? I can merge other record types, but cannot seem to figure out how to consolidate 2 inventory items.

Hi Arbee,


Merging of Item is not supported in NetSuite.

what we had done was, Inactivate the old item record and adjust the inventory balance to the new item record.

Hope this will work for you.


Thank you!

The ability to merge items is one of the top most requested NetSuite enhancements (# 17496) which you can vote on at SuiteIdeas

a workaround also to avoid having your reporting getting mess up is to set up the new item (or the one you want to keep as a parent item from the one you are inactivating. That way when you run reports for historical purchases etc.. it will report on the main item and any subitems. We did this for items that were enter as duplicates and had transaction on them 🙂
