Stock items are created and maintained for all goods and services, trading stock, etc. The stock item code file allows you to select a stock code when processing sales documents (i.e. Invoices, Point-of-Sale Invoices, Credit notes and Quotes) and purchase documents (i.e. Purchases, Supplier returns and Orders).

It is recommended that you carefully plan the structure of your Stock codes, before you start to create and edit your Stock items. A logical structure based on your needs and layout of your stores, etc., will definitely help you to manage your stock control easily.

The stock codes, if carefully planned, will make it easier to process documents (selecting Stock items on the Stock lookup) and in the case of Point-of-Sale Invoices (selecting Stock items selecting Stock items on the POS lookup). This will also give structure to any Stock reports, Sales analysis reports and Purchase analysis reports when the sequence Stock code is selected.
