How to add customer item numbers on Sage 300 Inventory Control


  1. Open Inventory Control > I/C Items and Price Lists > Customer Details.
  2. Enter or select the item number for which you are adding customer item numbers.
  3. In the table, for each customer:
    • Click in the table, or press the Insert key to start a new line.
    • If you use Sage 300 Accounts Receivable, click the Finder in the Customer Number column heading, and then select the customer.  If you do not use Accounts Receivable, double-click in the Customer Number field, then type the customer number. Also, in the Customer Name field, type the customer name.
      • Note: The first customer that you add is automatically assigned “Customer 1.” Each customer that you add is automatically assigned the next highest number, but you can change the customer type by selecting one from the list.  You cannot assign the same customer type to two different customer for the same item.
    • In the Customer’s Item Number field, type the item number, and then type the customer’s description of the item.
    • Enter the unit of measure.
