QuickBooks has allowed users to record the Manufacturer’s Park Number (MPN) as part of their Item details, however there were limited uses for this information. But now, for 2015, you can add the MPN to your Transactions in all version of QuickBooks (as shown below). Simply modify the templates of sales and purchase transaction to include the MPN field from the item record. If you use the MPN to make purchases from your vendors you will find this new functionality extremely beneficial. I personally can think of more than a dozen client's who have been eagerly awaiting this feature.
