Using the Merchandise Analysis Report

There are a lot of Inventory Reports and Sales Reports in Counterpoint, but only a few combine sales and inventory data into one report, and only the Merchandise Analysis report allows you to pick and choose which data you want to see on the report. This report is a great tool for understanding your inventory.

There are a few drop-down options on the parameters tab that will allow you to change how the report is shown.

Use the Location box to limit which location(s) should be included in the report.

Report Settings

Use the report settings area to:

  • Choose whether to print a pie chart
  • Show details based on location
  • Show items in the report that are marked inactive
