Does any experienced Bricklinker know anything about using BrickStock to
upload to Bricklink? There are so many options on Bricklink for concatenating
items and such which I don't understand. Let's say I have five 1 x 2
black bricks in my store in location 75 which was noted in a remark and four
black 1 x 2 bricks that are in my store, but don't have a remark. How can
I consolidate an upload of three 1 x 2 black bricks into the lot without the
remark to cut down on the amount of lots I have?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Stud City Bricks

If you upload with Brickstock, a lot gets consolidated with a lot already in
your inventory only when the both the remarks and the comments are 100% the same.

So if you have 1 lot with no remark, 1 lot with 75 in the remark and you upload
a new lot with no remark, it will consolidate to the lot with no remark.

If you upload a new lot with a remark set to 74 it will make a new lot so you
will end up with no remark, 75 and 74 as lots.

I got away from the remarks feature awhile ago precisely because loads of lots
frustrates me a as a buyer, it is clumsy to use as a seller and does not always
have the desired result. Took me 4 months to clean up my inventory and get all
those remarks removed and reduce the number of lots.

Incidentally, you can also manually fix your lots by going here:
https://www.bricklink.com/inventory.asp
tick the "non-unique" box on the right under "Search my Inventory" and click
go. This will show you every lot which has a different comment/remark/stockroom/reserved
or a combination of all of those.
