Inventory Control

I’m new to Manager and can’t figure out how to enter quantities into my inventory.

I have entered the inventory items I want to update and then went to the receipts and payment screen and entered 2 items from my receipt. When I went back to the inventory screen the total quantity appeared on the first item and 0 on the second item and there was no average price.

I have deleted the transactions several times and now can’t update the quantity or average price.

Can someone explain how this works?

Inventory items are added via purchase invoices or payments, not receipts. Read the Guides about inventory management.

Your purchase invoice or cash payment account lines should look like this
0000000%20Bug%202a

Which will make the inventory look like this
0000000%20Bug%203

how does that affect my journal entries?

Just as already illustrated and as explained in the Guides.

There shouldn’t be any journal entries involved.
