Import Items

This function is simply used to create a batch of items that we want to be able to use in other areas. The items could be imported into a stocktake, imported into a batch of tickets or used as selection criteria on a report. You can create a batch manually but usually you would go to an inventory transaction and select Actions| Create Import from the menu. This will create a new batch with all the items in the inventory transaction. The same batches are created by the Merchant PDA process.
