Title: Items "Needed" column for Shopping
Post by: BeerSmith on October 27, 2003, 03:23:57 PM
Thanks to Colin for mentioning this...a nice tip.

On the shopping list it is often nice to show not only the Amount you want and the Inventory but also the difference between them -- fortunately there is a column called "Needed" that you can add to show you the "Amount" minus the "Inventory" so you know how many to purchase...

 1. Pick the shopping list view
 2. Select the "Customize Columns" command on the "View" menu
 3. Select the "Needed" column and add it to the list of columns (preferrably at the end)...

Now you will have a "Needed" column that shows you how many items you need to buy that are not in the inventory.

Cheers!
