Order Entry Statistics

This process is used to create both detailed and totaled order entry statistics. These are statistical data from customer orders and are used for reporting purposes. See Report Processing.

Order entry statistics are created in detail and in accumulated form in datasets after using this process.

Before you start

Follow these steps

  1. Updating detailed order entry statistics

    Detailed order entry statistics are updated automatically for every customer order line entered according to the customer order type. These statistics are accumulated in datasets for further processing as totals.

  2. Updating dataset

    The accumulated totals are updated to the dataset(s) for total order entry statistics.

    Each customer delivery that updates the detailed statistics is checked for the information which is updated to the dataset. The information checked is:

    • The division is correct.
    • The start and end dates for updating the dataset include the accounting date for the transaction.
    • The order entry statistics transaction type is included in the dataset.
    • The transaction meets the selection criteria defined for the dataset.

    The dataset that matches this information check is updated automatically for every new record created in the detailed statistics.

  3. Re-creating detailed order entry statistics

    When needed, the detailed order entry statistics can be re-created. This can be necessary if historical data has been destroyed or if the parameters for updating Customer Order Type have been changed.

    The detailed sales statistics are re-created in 'Order Received Stats. Re-create' (OSS990) by selecting the accounting date as of when the statistics should be re-created. See Re-create Detailed Order Entry Statistics.

    In order to re-create the statistics, customer orders must still be in the database. Also, when the statistics are re-created, all affected datasets are automatically re-created.

  4. Re-creating data in dataset

    When needed, the data in datasets can also be re-created. This can be for newly defined or redefined datasets. This is done in 'Order Received Stats. Re-create' (OSS990) by selecting the accounting date as of when the statistics should be re-created. See Re-create Order Entry Statistics in Datasets. In order to re-create the data, the base information must still be in the detailed order entry statistics.
