    I was taught at a previous dealership to do inventory updating through the inventory count sheets tab, however, the new dealership I’m at has not done it that way before. We are now getting an accounting error and I’m not sure what the issue is since I didn’t learn the accounting side at the last dealership. Is this something you can help with?
