Return item qty for certain Product category

Hi Bruce,

Have a few things to get back to you with...doing myself no favs starting something new.

On a Sales Invoice report

I want to return roofing trim sales by quanty per inv.
I think the best way to do this is by Category but Im struggling to get it to work.

I can only get report to retrun the total qty for all products for said individual invoices.

You need to add a filter to the report

The expression would be

Code: Select all

I think, based on the number of questions you are asking, you would probably be better of using Excel, link the invoice data to sage with ODBC, you can then use pivot tables to slice and dice the data and query it to answer all these sorts of questions and more. This way you get a general purpose tool to answer just about anything based on the sales data.

(Maybe it is time to buy an hour of my time and get me to make it for you and see what this approach can do.)
For just about anything Sage :- switch to subscription, pay-as-you-go support, sagecover, upgrades, application integration, reports, layouts, analysis or any other help making life with sage easier/less time consuming Contact me. Image
