In the Sales Analysis Reports and Inventory Reports by Department, you can have the program produce subtotals on specified groups of major class codes.
For example, you can have a subtotal printed for major class codes 1 to 50, (which could be, for example, all precious loose stones) then another subtotal for major class codes 51 through 100 (which might be all semi-precious loose stones.)
To set the subtotal groups, select option 9. The following screen will appear:
█ Golden Opportunity ♦ Update the Subtotals for Sales Analysis █
█ The subtotal definitions, determine which class codes will be subtotaled █
█ together in the M-T-D & Y-T-D department sales reports. Proceeding with this █
█ operation will erase the current subtotal definition (if there is one). █
█ However, you can always re-create this definition so you cannot do any █
█ permanent damage. █
█ Type CHANGE SUBTOTALS to continue: █
▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀ <Esc>=Quit ▀▀▀
Type the words CHANGE SUBTOTALS. This process will reset subtotals for any prior groupings to zero, and is necessary to set new subtotal ranges.
Even though you can erase the subtotal definition with this option, you cannot erase any of your data from this option.
While the system is resetting the subtotals, the following message will appear:
Clearing Previous Subtotal Definitions . . .
When the subtotals have been reset the following screen will appear:
Type the highest-numbered code in each group of class codes. For example, if you want a subtotal for groups 1 to 50, type 50. Then, if you also want a subtotal for groups 51 to 100 and 101 to 200, type 100, then afterwards type 200.
You can enter as many subtotal groups as you like.
When you have entered all subtotal groupings, leave the field as zero (0) and press <Enter>.
