Report: Analyse Purchases [Item Multi-Period] - Quantity values

the analyse purchases (item) report would be of good use to us if we could select the Quantity field rather than be limited to Amount.

Item summary and Item detail reports offer quantity but send to excel in a format that is not cross-tab and takes too much time and effort to reformat in a way we can sort/filter/ subtotal in a variety of ways.

Re: Analyse Purchases (Item Multi-Period) Report

Hi @TheRodBaron


You will find that some of the Addon Solutions are able to provide this level of lexiorting over Item Purchases ( and Sales) - see -


As an example our software Business Intelligence for MYOB can produce a Multi Period  Item Purchase report by Qty ( or can inc $ and Ave purchase price too). 


Example 1 - MultiPeriod PUrchases by Qty, I have set this to subtotal by Supplier however you could change this to other dimensions using Custom Lists ( e.g. Product Type, Brand etc) or remove the subtotal completely.

Example 2 - This one is also showing $total and Ave Purchase price so you can compare all of these metrics over time.

These all export to excel easily to enable futher analysis.
