Comparison of Data in Stock Summary Report in TallyPrime: 2 Examples

The Stock Summary Report in TallyPrime offers a powerful tool for comparing various aspects of your inventory across different categories.

This allows you to analyze trends, identify areas for improvement, and make informed inventory management decisions.

Here’s a detailed explanation of how to compare data in the Stock Summary Report with examples:

1. Comparing Data in the Stock Summary Report:

There are two primary ways to compare data in the Stock Summary Report:

1. Comparing Across Different Periods:

  • Access the Stock Summary Report (Gateway > Reports > Inventory Reports > Stock Summary).
  • Utilize the “Period” filter to select different timeframes for comparison. You can choose specific months, quarters, or years.

    2. Example:

    You want to compare your inventory performance for January and February.

    The report will display data side-by-side for both months, allowing you to compare:

    • Opening Stock Value: This shows the total cost of your inventory at the beginning of each month.
    • Purchases: The total value of all purchases made during each month.
    • Sales: The total revenue generated from all sales during each month.
    • Closing Stock Value: The total cost of all remaining stock items at the end of each month.

    By comparing these values, you can identify trends in purchases, sales, and overall inventory levels between the two months.

    3. Comparing Across Different Stock Groups or Items (Using Auto Columns):

    • Access the Stock Summary Report.
    • Press Alt+N (New Column) or navigate to the “Set Columns” option.
    • Select the data points you want to compare as additional columns. This might include:
      • Stock Groups: Compare performance across pre-defined stock groups (e.g., clothing, electronics).
      • Stock Items: Compare specific stock items within a group.
      • Last Sale Price: Analyze selling price trends for different items.

      4. Example:

      You want to compare the performance of “Clothing” and “Electronics” stock groups. Add a “Stock Group” column to the report.

      Now, the report will show details for both groups alongside each other, allowing you to compare their:

      • Opening Stock Value: Analyze the initial investment in each category.
      • Purchases: Identify which category has higher purchasing activity.
      • Sales: Compare revenue generation from each category.
      • Closing Stock Value: Assess the remaining inventory cost for each category.
