QB Issue Resolution:

“is there a setting that you can change so you can have it deduct from inventory without invoicing?”

As I noted: There is a setting in Premier, in inventory preferences that will take the SO into consideration on the Reporting for management of inventory.

Nothing Literally removes it except You do that, by selling it or Adjusting it off. But you can use the tools to Manage the work in process.
