Once you are finished posting counter slips for the day, you update the counter slips to Accounting. When you click the End Of Day option on the Parts Inventory menu, the Daily Counter Sales Update menu appears. You use this menu to update counter sales. If you want to print sales reports, you must print them before updating the sales. Once you update the sales, the report information is reset to prepare for the next day’s business. Therefore, the counter sales should be updated daily. The menu displays the date of the last update for reference.
You have the option of viewing the daily counter slip reports on your screen or printing them to paper. When prompted to verify your printer is ready, click to select To Printer to print the information or To Screen to view the information on your screen. Once you select your print type, click Print.
If you select to print the report to your screen, you can print the report from the viewing screen by clicking File and Print. To exit the viewing screen, click File and Exit.

Use this button to print a list of parts that have been sold on the current day. In addition to To Printer and To Screen, the print criteria for this option include Export to Excel, which creates and opens a Microsoft Excel document, which you can manipulate and save as necessary.
The summary lists parts sold on both counter slips and repair orders today. Parts on the counter slips and repair orders are reported when they are relieved from inventory.
If a counter slip or repair order is held open and a part is removed the following day, the report will be incorrect in terms of total sales. Therefore, this report should be used as a source of daily information rather than a measure of performance of the Parts and Service Departments.
