Smart software a simpler example

No sooner did I post an example of our software used to produce economic order quantities; I got a telephone call telling me that this is fantastic and the best thing since sliced bread (sliced bread is something, by the way; I do not like; I prefer unsliced) but the example used of EOQ is too complex, and he would like a simpler example.

So here is a simple example, I want the code of a stationery product that is about $6 for BIC Australia. That is a fairly common problem.

So what I could do is go to the register reports and select a full listing

I now ask for BIC but note it does not have a question cost price, with adhoc reporting you do not need to worry as it is not required.

I then get this excel listing.

I go over the column labeled Wholesale price

Press on the top Sort & Filter

Then press select turn off all the costs.

Then I click on all the costs that are about $6.

In this case, there is only one, and it is listed immediately here.

The code I wanted was 41330, pretty nifty.

With adhoc reporting, the information you get is limited only by your imagination.
