Maintain Stock Analysis Codes

Open: Stock Control > Stock Maintenance > Maintain Stock Analysis Codes

Analysis Codes are spare fields which can be used for recording additional user-defined details about stock item records.

To restrict the values that can be entered in a stock item analysis code, a data type can be set.

Setting a data type doesn’t affect how values are stored in the database.

Setting a Data Type on Analysis Codes

If no restriction is required on the type of values that can be entered on an analysis code, leave the Data Type blank.

To set a restriction, use one of the following available types :

  • Numeric : Only a number can be entered; this excludes any letters or special characters.
  • Date : Only a valid date can be entered.
  • Yes / No : Can only be set to a Yes or No.
