QuickBooks 2008: items being posted to Stock Asset account, despite not being associated with that account
A client has recently started using Items in QuickBooks 2008, but when she books a cheque for a purchase of some of these Items, QB automatically posts them to the Stock Asset account. I have looked at the Item List, which shows that some of these items are linked to the Sales account and one does not appear on the Item List at all. No Item in the list is linked to the Stock Asset account.
Can anyone tell me how these items are ending up in the Stock Asset account, and how I can stop it happening? She does not want to record them as stock because she buys them for specific sales orders and they go straight out again.
