Sell a finished good marked as phantom

is it possible to sell a finished good assembly marked as phantom?

Without actually testing it, I would suggest not. A Phantom Item is meant as a means to simplify complex Bill of Materials and is not intended to represent a finished (sellable) item.

thankyou for the quick reply, I thought this would be the case, but I just thought I would ask if there was a way around it that I was unaware of.

Our way around this is to sell service parts with with a letter added to the part number. That allows a method to sell, capture labor and overhead, and material. For instance part 1234 is on the BOM as phantom. Service sells S1234.
