    Hi Robert,
    I currently use Fishbowl and I just setup Fishbowl Mobile Warehouse with the intent to know how much inventory I have when I am out of the office without having to back to the office to find out how much I have in stock.
    Is there a way I can print inventory labels so that when I scan the bar code it will tell me how much of that item I have in stock?

    I would greatly appreciate it if you could help me with this.
