Purchase Orders Custom Reports
Reports based on custom conditions
Conditional Reports for purchase orders, enable you to generate custom reports based on various conditions.
Dates conditions can be set to match periods (past, or future) and duration. For example, you can generate reports for shipment due in 3 days.
Numeric conditions can be set to match numerical values in your data. For example, you can generate reports for products that have quantities greater than 10.
Reports can be generated for items that either contain, begin with or end with certain characters. For example, you can generate reports for product names that begin with “n”.
You can generate reports after an arithmetic calculation has been performed. For example, you could generate a report that has “unit price” multiplied by “quantity”, and the result is less than 200.
