Purchases by Supplier Summary report: options and information

Available in Microsoft Office Accounting Professional 2008 only.

The Purchases by Supplier Summary report helps you understand your purchasing history by showing the purchases from and payments to your suppliers in a summarised form over a selected date range. You can use the Columns option to compare your results to previous periods in pound sterling or percentage terms and then see trends evolving over time. The information in this report includes supplier names, supplier numbers, supplier groups and purchase amounts. The report displays the current month-to-date period, but you can modify the period by using the Date toolbar or the Select Filter Options dialog box.

In the Purchases by Supplier Summary report, you can do the following:

  • Click a column heading to sort all report contents by that column.

  • Double-click a row to open the Purchases by Supplier Detail report for the supplier on that row. You can then double-click each line item in the newly opened report to open the original transaction forms associated with that supplier.

    Note: If you open a report and edit an underlying document, you need to refresh the report to see the effect of your changes. Click Refresh Report   Button Image on the toolbar or press F5.

When you move the mouse cursor over information that is linked to additional details, the cursor changes to a pointing finger. This indicates you can double-click that location to display associated information, such as opening the original transaction document.
