    A clarifying question: When you say distribution software, are you talking about a full blown inventory planning type of tool - as in a DRP system? Or an even larger scale MRPII system where you can also plan your materials?

    If you want basic invoice printing functionality with "inventory light" (no forward planning capabilities), you might want to try Quickbooks - it will also give you a place to do your accounting activities, as that's the primary function. I find that it meets my current, albiet limited needs.

    Just my $.02

    Is this the one?

    Thank you. Yes a very light version will probably work for me initially. Is this the one you reccomend?

    Yes, that's it. But actually, I use the BASIC Quickbooks edition without the Manufacturing extras, and it covers my needs so far (all 5 months worth of my tiny operation). I can't use it for raw materials - and only use a little of the finished goods inventory stuff, so maybe the version you cite would be better suited - and only costing a little more.
