Running a Report of Price and Part Number Changes from the Last Parts Tape

Autosoft -

Use this button to print a list of all the changes that occurred during the latest price tape update. The changes include both supersession information and cost changes. Please note that this may be a lengthy report. 

When a part has been superceded, the New Part No. column will list the new part number. In this instance, the Old Cost column will list the original part cost, and the New Cost column will list the new part cost. The Cost field on the Master Inventory screen will display the corresponding cost for each part number. The cost for the old part number does not change when there is a new part number.

When there is only a price change for a part, the New Part No. column will be blank. The Old Cost column in this instance is the old cost for the part, and the New Cost column is the new cost for the part. The Cost field on the Master Inventory screen will reflect the new cost for the part.

The end of the report lists the Inventory At Old Cost and Inventory At Current Cost values along with the Net Decrease. Please note that the report does not use the values in the Old Cost and New Cost columns to calculate these figures. Instead, the values are calculated using the same method used to calculate the Inventory FasTrial. This provides a true analysis of your actual inventory.
