Stock Control Files:
- SCM the Master Product file: contains one record for each product. This is static information about what it is and
how you sell it.
- SCX the Stock file which includes:
- "B" Stock levels: one record for each product at each branch / location. There can be as many branches as desired.
This is dynamic information about where it is and how many you have.
- "P" Xeno details: a record for each supplier for each product - there may be multiple suppliers for a product. This
is what other people call an item and how they sell it.
- "T" files for text records: up to 6 lines of 80 characters per product.
- SCT the Stock Transaction file: a history of transactions: purchases and sales etc.
- SCP for Stock Purchases only, a sub set of SCT.
- SCS is a temporary costings file: from Supplier Orders to stock and creditors.
- SCC is the Stock Count table.

- Using price: the target price code is changed in
relationship to the value of the "Using price" code: 99 to set target price
to the value in "adjust by" - this can be 0 to clear target price.
- Adjust by: dollar value OR
- Factor: i.e. a percentage OR use MARK UP.
Mark ups: Leave "Factor" blank to use "Mark up".
The target products need to have a Mark Up Code
on their records. There may be any number of mark up codes on your system. The price change
program adjusts the selected prices according to the regime expressed in the
code e.g. some by 10% and some by 25%. You can mark up Price 1 using Price 1
multiplied by your mark up regime. The mark up is expressed as a factor
to be applied to a value: e.g.
1.25 for a 25% mark up
Calculate e.g. plus 2.5%: 1 + 0.025 = 1.025
1.125 for a 12.5% mark up
0.875 for a 12.5% mark down
Calculate e.g. less 2.5%: 1 - 0.025 = 0.975
The above will select items by a Product range, for a single Supplier,
process by Product, change All selected records, Round to the dollar,
and change the price only if the result will be an
Increase. The Generated Price is set to change Sell Price 1, based on the Average Cost (Price
6) and, because the Factor is zero, use the Mark up Code.
E.g. An item with Average Cost $17.90 and Price 1
$20.00 using a 20% mark up:
Calculation: 17.9 x 1.2 = 21.48
Result: Price 1 changes from $20.00 to $21.48
Price Code 99 in the "using price" field will set the selected
price to the value in the "adjust by" field. If the "adjust by" field
is left at zero the Price code selected in the "Generate Price" field will be
cleared. Both Factor and Mark up are ignored in this case, but remember to change "All"
fields not just increases.
e.g. the first line changes Price 1 to $5.00
and the second line clears Price 2
Adjust by: this value is added to the "using" price before the
factor is applied
e.g. Generate Price 3 from Price 1's value, adjust by $5.00 and then
increase by 12.5%
Price 1 is $20.00, $5.00 is added to this, then the $25.00 is increased by 12.5%
Calculation: (20.00 + 5.00) x 1.125 = 28.125.
Result: Price 3 is $28.125 (or 28.13 if default "Round To" is left at 01).

process translates a supplier's product list into data that Cogito can use.
The group of programs is designed to make bulk changes to your product list and / or
codes and descriptions (handy for ordering), barcodes, and prices.
It will only update the products that match the codes on your system.
It takes a Supplier's spreadsheet (.csv) and inserts data from your records.
The system uses “Import Templates” to describe each supplier's spreadsheet, and “Markup Formulae” describing your
method of calculating prices from suppliers' costs. Add your
stock code into the spreadsheet, tell the system what "shape" the spreadsheet is, and all the information will be updated.
After the initial setup the process can be run very quickly.
- Select your Import template
F3to select e.g. "AS": this will create eg. "OLAS.csv".
The template can be used to generate or translate a spreadsheet in preparation for:
updating Xeno data (supplier product code, barcode, etc.)
The template (usually 1 for each supplier) carries information to "translate" his price list to a
standard CogNosco spreadsheet.
a Supplier's new price list
New product ranges or product changes
See option 20: CogNosco Templates, or "Stock Setups" (rSCL29C0), Subject 14 "Import Templates".
A template can alternatively carry a "Generator" code which will call a designated Product Export routine with an
attached "Report Filter". This option allows you to “build” a CogNosco spreadsheet from your own Product table to
prepare for changes you wish to make.
- (optionally) build a spreadsheet or use one from the Supplier (option 3)
To produce a "basic” spreadsheet the selected Import template must specify an export in the “Generate using” option:
e.g. template AS can build spreadsheet OLAS.csv
using program 8SCPO2KA with filter AS.
The spreadsheet is produced and changes can be made (e.g. re-calculate Std. Cost) before being imported
into CogNosco using option 3.
Create a report for this spreadsheet.
In the Layout Screen: set to eXport, give it an Export name OLAS.CSV and
set to Replace each time it is run.
In the Subject screen:
- Product code range: from AS to ASzzzzzzzz
- Branch CH to CH
- Supplier From Account code ROBERT to ROBERT
Main supplier only M
- Status OR: select status codes B, C,
In the Conditions screen: Set to Details, usually
Std Cost and All
- "Import" a spreadsheet and convert to CogNosco format
Care is needed to not let the spreadsheet program take control of how the data is imported: it is comma separated,
and some columns (especially "codes") may need to be identified as e.g. "text".
This function takes an imported spreadsheet (or the one produced in step 2 above) and "processes"
it into a standard "CogNosco" worksheet. "Missing" details are automatically inserted from the Product
and / or Xeno tables.
Once Xeno products are loaded, Cognosco will automatically fill in "our" Product Codes,
along with our Description, category and sales codes, short description and current prices.
- Update using 8SCL03 PRICE CHANGESPrice Calculator
The optional "price calculator" program (rSCL03) can now process a CogNosco spreadsheet using "markup formulae".
See program option 11: "Markup Formulae", or "Stock Setups" (rSCL29C0), subject 11 "Markup Formulae".
NOTE that this process only populates the spreadsheet.
A "markup formula" can be assigned to an Import Template, an individual Supplier, or per row (line)
in the spreadsheet.
It does NOT update the prices onto the Product table.
(see option 6: "Update our Product table").
New prices are calculated using the formula and placed into the spreadsheet, which can then be reviewed.
It is probably best to assign a Markup Formula code to each product. This can be achieved by assigning a code to each supplier (or each category), then updating your products using the new toolkit program (rSCX06MF). This checks each product which doesn't currently have a Markup Code and assigns one – firstly by checking the “main supplier”, and then the product's “category” code.
You could also assign markup codes using a generated CogNosco spreadsheet or by using the “gang change” toolkit (rSCX06MU).
- Review results
Opens the created spreadsheet e.g. PRICE.CSV
This option now allows you to select an imported ”raw” spreadsheet, or a generated CogNosco spreadsheet
for reviewing or changing with your specified spreadsheet program - e.g. Open Office Calc or Microsoft Excel.
The spreadsheet can be "fixed" in any way you like except that you must retain the original "shape"
– i.e. don't insert, delete or re-arrange the columns in any way.
There are 2 "work" fields which can be used for whatever you like, but remember that
a .csv file does not retain spreadsheet calculations.
Any number of columns can be added after the last column.
- Re-process (after fixing)
This option can be used if you are spending a long time preparing a spreadsheet -
e.g. fixing Product Codes, pricing, descriptions etc.
You will be asked to select the Import Template (option 1) and the the spreadsheet name (option 13).
The program will then fill in any other data (as per option 2).
- Update our Product table
Once the spreadsheet is finalised, use this option to update your Product Table (ccSCM) - using program "rSCX41K1".
Note that only "non-blank" (and "non-0") items will be used, and only if they are different from what is
already on the Product record.
New products will also be added, provided that there is enough information - Code, Category, Status,
- Update "Xeno Supplier Product" table
If there is enough relevant information in the spreadsheet, this process (rSCX42K1) will populate
the Xeno table with the following data per Supplier Product:
Their Product Code
Their Description (up to 2 lines)
- Product Lookup program (rSCQ01C2) so that you can check codes, pricing etc.
- Xeno Product Lookup (rSCQ03C1).
- Change / create an Import template (rSCL29C0 Subject 14).
- Markup Formulae: edit or create a new markup formula for this supplier:
(rSCL29C0 Subject 11).
- Export Filter: You can create a "blank" CogNosco spreadsheet (rSCP02EO) with report maintenance.
- Using spreadsheet: Allows you to select which spreadsheet you are using. F3 allows you to select
from a list of available spreadsheets, showing the "newest" first.
The Product Master File contains a record for each item. This program may also be accessed during invoicing.
N.B. Know what you are doing should you want to change a key
code, this affects sales analysis and other reports. Check first - there is a specific re-coding option available.
Defaults can be set to save keying-in time. Stock levels should only be changed

- New Code - special field for
re-coding stock items.
- Old Code - the code the item
was known by before re-coding.
- Alternate: if a selected item is out of stock, the code in the alternate item
is suggested during invoicing.
An item which is longer available and is status "X" (Discontinued) may have an alternate product code which displays
during invoicing and supplier ordering. F3 to pick.
An item with status "A" and a code in Alternate 1 (not 2 or 3) is an "Alias". It is really the
item in Alt 1 but is "also known as" this item. This allows an item to be sold with more than one description
and code. It may also have a different price. An Alias can be sold but not purchased. Alias products have no stock
but imitate the stock level in Alt 1. They will not be itemised in stock reports but can be analysed
in Sales reports.

- Average Cost: recalculated when costing in a Purchase
Order. This e.g. was out of stock.
10 units are Costed in at $10.00 / unit plus freight of $9.00 (GST
inclusive) spread over the shipment = 10.80 / unit. Last and Average
Costs = $10.80
Then 8 are sold and 10 more purchased but this time at $12.00 / unit
plus freight of $9.00 spread over the shipment = $12.80 / unit.
Average Cost is recalculated:
2 @ 10.80 = 21.60
10 @ 12.80 = 128.00
149.60 / 12 = 12.467 (the new Average Cost).

- Quantity: Stock unit ratio i.e. how many are contained in the alternate
unit compared to the normal stock unit
e.g. normally stocked as a packet:
1st alternate unit - single - based on 20 units to a packet,
2nd alternate unit - carton - contains 10 packets.
The alternate unit Price is calculated by taking the sell price,
multiplying by the Factor, then dividing or multiplying (depending on
the "Indicator") by the ratio.
Sum: Sell Price x Factor x OR + Quantity

too big. This saves backup time and disk space. You may want to do this every
month or so depending on the size of your files and how often you look up past
transactions. You have the choice of deleting the records or archiving
them. Your archiving procedure should be set-up to name your newest archive

Also see general information
on adding and changing reports. Most of these fields can be changed when reports are run.
- Type: Normal - the default text layout.
Compressed - for wide reports, printer drivers need to be set up.
eXport - eliminates headers, page breaks and print commands; originally for saving "Normal" reports to file,
now used to direct ".csv" files in the Print Manager. This option brings up its own screen.
Form - for specific stationery forms (e.g. Statements).
Label - specific layout for labels. This option brings up its own screen.
- Title: Your description of this report - prints as a Header.
- Spacing must be between 1 (default) and 10 e.g. 2 for double spacing.
Lines per page 55 or leave for printer defaults.
- Margin: extra lines Top and Bottom of page. Pages can be broken after blocks of information - see next screen.
- Orientation: Landscape, Portrait (default), else leave as per printer driver. Both
printer models are needed in setups for this print option.
N.B. Some reports override Compression and Orientation selections.
- Print Extra Desc: Y to print the
extra text fields. N to omit,
Only include items with extra text.
OR if Labels selected (above): try a small run on ordinary paper
first and check it against your label stationery.
- Labels Across: e.g. 3 labels across your stationery.
- Per Item: print e.g. 2 labels for each item. + Extras e.g. 2 extra labels for each item
Based On: Entered, On hand, Purchase
or Report file.
e.g. for a product with 10 items On Hand; print 22 labels.
- Top margin: you may need to skip a few lines, especially for laser printers
- Labels DOWN page: e.g. 15 on the stationery
OR if eXport selected (above):
- Export id: e.g. ANSCM.CSV (can include path code: e.g. EOM!yymmDT.csv)
- Delim: Default is a comma between fields but could be e.g. a bar | if commas are used in the text you are reporting on, or any other symbol.
- Replace?: N if you want to ADD to the specified file name - default replaces the file.
- When finished call Spreadsheet, Viewer, Word processor. You need to set your Terminal settings for this.
- Use Stocktake:
Y to read from the Stocktake file instead of the Stock file.
- Stocktake No. use the specific stocktake record code e.g. 2004
- Count: and count code e.g. 12
- Branch: re: Stocktake file.
- Setup: command
to run another program or perform
another function BEFORE running this report.
e.g. Delete the p- file first, run a Control Report first

- ID: ccSCK: add e.g. ROC (to create "ccSCKROC" - Re-Order
Cogito), there can be any No. of SCK files.
- Update or Clear: add to this file or clear and rebuild.
Other reports can be run from the Report file OR
the Report File can then be modified with an associated program,
e.g. build a Re-order Report File for one Supplier and then turn it
straight into a Purchase Order.

Up to 3 "subjects" can be used for sorting stock reports e.g.
Product by Category by Status.
Although Branch MUST be included it can be set to hierarchy 4 so that
it will not "sort" by.
Other subjects can be set to hierarchy zero so that they can be used
for selection criteria but not for sorting (hierarchy) purposes.
- From - To: space to zzz to include everything or,
if you are setting up a specific report which you will run frequently,
set the ranges you will use most often,
e.g. a specific branch and range of stock. They can be changed when the
report is run.
- Hierarchy: for sorting. These MUST be set and MUST be in
descending order from biggest to smallest.
Branch is the biggest selection containing many items and Product is
the smallest containing only itself.
Branch MUST be included even if you have only one location for all your
stock, but can be Hierarchy 4 to effectively ignore it.
The e.g. has been set to sort the data first by Branch then by
Category, then by Product.
The report will have a branch heading followed by a category heading
with a list of products belonging to that category,
then the next category and products etc.
If there is more than 1 branch, the categories and products are
repeated under the next branch heading.
- Page: P to force a page break at e.g.
each new Branch code.
- OR: N to prevent Sub Totals printing
for each Branch.
- Applicable to "Product" and "Category" only.

Applicable to "Branch" only.
- Follow-On: e.g. L1.
Enter new report name e.g. 8SCP02D5/L1 and F6
Fill in the selections with the ranges you want to include.
Follow-on Reports can include an otherwise disparate product range
e.g. all green coloured stock,
or in this e.g. ranges of software.
- OR "*xxx" for a KEY File of Product Codes e.g. *ROC
to read from the Report file "ccSCKROC" instead of the Product File.

Old code (replaces), or any Alternate.
Used mostly for stock re-coding.
Applicable to "Bin" only:
Break at character: start new page when a selected
character changes e.g.
for a Bin code range AA11 to BC99; 3 will cause a
page break at every third character (AA11).
Up to 3 "subjects" can be used for sorting stock reports e.g.
Product by Category by Status.
Although Branch MUST be included it can be set to hierarchy 4 so that
it will not "sort" by.
