Run, Recreate, Display and Print Item Statistics

This instruction explains how to run, recreate, display and print item statistics. Item statistics are used to get accumulated information for an item over a period.


At the end of an MPM period, item statistics can be run and displayed. Item statistics can also be recreated.

The item statistic is used to see how many items have been purchased, manufactured, sold, used and scrapped. It can also be used to see positive and negative physical inventory variances.

Reasons for recreating statistics can include:

Each time a transaction is entered, the regular statistical table (MITSTA) is updated in accordance with the transaction settings.
