COGNOSCO is Latin for I recognise and XENO is Latin for stranger: this 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 Supplier's Product 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.


  1. 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.)
    a Supplier's new price list
    New product ranges or product changes
    The template (usually 1 for each supplier) carries information to "translate" his price list to a standard CogNosco spreadsheet.
    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.
  2. (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.

  3. SCP02KA

    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.

  1. "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.
  2. 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.
    It does NOT update the prices onto the Product table.
    (see option 6: "Update our Product table").
    A "markup formula" can be assigned to an Import Template, an individual Supplier, or per row (line) in the spreadsheet.
    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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. 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, Description, prices.
  6. 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)
    Bar Code
    Latest Cost

  1. Product Lookup program (rSCQ01C2) so that you can check codes, pricing etc.
  2. Xeno Product Lookup (rSCQ03C1).

  1. Change / create an Import template (rSCL29C0 Subject 14).
  2. Markup Formulae: edit or create a new markup formula for this supplier: (rSCL29C0 Subject 11).
  3. Export Filter: You can create a "blank" CogNosco spreadsheet (rSCP02EO) with report maintenance.
  4. 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 when you initially load your records, after that the "delete" function should be turned off and you should use postings. Not all fields need to be filled but you will be prompted if an essential field is left blank.

At the prompt F3 to pluck and change any existing record
OR enter a new code and F5 to Add OR F8 to Copy the last record on screen.

The Stock File has 4 main categories: the Stock Category, Category 2 / 3 and a Sales Code.
Also see Stock report subjects and Sales Analysis Tables for reportable fields.
Keep these divisions in mind when setting up your Product File; many of the programs (such as Price Change and Tool Kits) are designed around these categories.

Flags 1 - 4: this 4 column Header sets the defaults for displaying and printing extra text attached to a record. A Flag at an individual line over-rides the setting in the column header - X per line suppresses the column heading.

Column Header:
Space to ignore text in lookups and printing. Text does not display, is not "turned on". Just handy for notes to yourself when in stock maintenance.
OR * for all options
OR I, p etc. as described below
OR (applicable to Column 4 only) A,B,C,D behaves like a * but also includes security level: eg. D allows only those users with unlimited access to see the text.
    Each column represents a different "condition":
  1. Printing on Sales:
    Print only on Invoices, Orders, Packing slips or Quotes (upper case)
    * print on all
    OR print on all documents EXCEPT invoices, orders, packing slips or quotes (lower case).
  2. Printing on Reports:
    Print only on Price lists, Re-orders, Valuations.
    N.B. only if "Extra Text" is selected in the Report.
  3. Printing on Purchasing:
    Print on Orders, Receipts, Costings.
    OR print on all documents EXCEPT orders, receipts, costings.
  4. Display:
    During Sales (Invoicing etc.), Purchases, or Query (Lookups)
(Or use the Stock Maintenance program.)
For setting up a regime to sell items in different units based on the way you normally buy and sell this item. Any change to the sell price impacts on the alternate unit prices.

SCALT SCALTA Either method may be used - or a mixture of multiplication and division.
Note that only 2 not 5 alternate units are available at this stage.

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

Normal unit Packet $10.00    
e.g. Cigarettes Desc. Factor / Price Type Quantity Indicator  
Alternate unit 1. Single 1.05 20.00  
Alternate unit 2. Carton .95 10.00 M

A Packet of cigarettes containing 20 cigarettes is $10.00
A single cigarette is loaded by 5% Sum: 10.00*1.05/20 = $0.525
A Carton containing 10 Packets is loaded by 5% Sum: 10.00*.95*10 = $95.00

Normal unit Pipe 3 Metre lengths $40.00  
e.g. Pipe Desc Factor / Price Type Quantity Indicator
Alternate Unit 1 1 Metre 1.250 3.000

3 metre length of Pipe is $40.00
A metre of Pipe is loaded by 25% Sum: 40.0*1.25/3 = $16.67

When invoicing, the "Quantity" is dependent on the "Of Code" - Select 0, 1, or 2
The unit descriptions are displayed, but you may want to change the general description.


These invoice lines show:
1st line selling 1 x normal unit
2nd line selling 1 x alternate unit
3rd line selling 3 x alternate unit
(note the difference between lines 1 and 3 due to the loading factor).

8SCL04S Product Re-coding.
8SCL05AC - Averge Cost: Re-calculate Average Cost from Purchase records - Option to update "Aged" cost
8SCL05AL - Amalgamate Aliases: Add the Stock DEMAND from an Alias to its "Master". Re-code the SCT records to the MASTER code
8SCL05FR - Identify "problem" items for stocktake. Report and set the "Fixup-Rate" for items with a high ratio of stock adjustments. Assign each product a "behaviour" level (scm-fixup-rate): How many Qty Adjustment plus Stocktake Variance records are present per 100 Purchase records.
8SCL05H1 - Reports on active items with no Stocktake transaction since a specified date.
8SCL05OH - On Hand: Re-calculate On Hand from SCT/SCP. Takes On Hand from the first transaction after the "start" date and re-calculates On Hand based on all the subsequent transactions. Option to update only if "Z" found.
8SCL05OS - Old Stock: Calculate the Aged Qty and cost for items where current "on hand" includes "old" purchases.
8SCL05ST - As for OH, but takes the SCXI On Hand as the opening Stock figure - For re-calculating "on hand" stock from an "old" SCX and a current SCT. Option to use Category range.


As with all tool kits this is a very powerful program: BACK UP first. Use it to delete records on the following files (with their Maintenance programs):
SCM (Products - 8SCL09C2),
SCX (Branch Stock - 8SCL12C2, Supplier Products - 8SCL23C1, Extra Text - 8SCL09C2) and
SCT (Transaction - 8SCL19C1),
NOT Special Prices, Suppliers Orders or Invoices (Sales) etc.
Select ranges of Product Codes, Categories and SCM Status codes (probably "Z" in this case).
Select Branches, SCX Status Code, SCX Record types (Branch, Supp. Product and / or Text or all - and one, several or all Transaction Types.
Y to Delete from: SCM: SCX: SCT: Cancel SCM only (doesn't delete SCX/SCT recs) or Delete.


This e.g will delete all records within the range with a "Z" status.

Enter Y to run or N to ESC - a record is displayed on screen.
  1. SCX records with Stock will NOT be deleted - they must be zeroed first.
  2. To delete SCM records you must also delete ALL the corresponding SCX and SCT records.
  3. SCX and SCT records can be deleted independently.
  4. SCT record deletion is based on SCX


For a variety of reasons your Stock Files can become inaccurate and certain transaction fields may need to be cleared and re-calculated with other programs. N.B. Discuss with us FIRST. Back up FIRST. These programs can be scheduled to run overnight.

For writing down old stock. A report is printed.

Accept or change Valuation date.
and "Current" Period (e.g. 12 months before the valuation date)


Defaults can be set in controls - accept or change.


To include / exclude various details
and either print or Export to the designated csv file.



Archive old transactions periodically to keep your files from getting 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 file "ccSCT01" where "cc" is your company code, check with us first.


Make your selections, "Y" and Enter.
Esc when finished - results are displayed. The files then need to be rebuilt.


Accept file name eg. ccSCWC2 (where "cc" is your company name, and "WC2" is the current work file belonging to "C2" logon). Or change to a different work file eg. ccSCWC4 OR change to ccSCS which is the Supplier Orders Costing File. These are temporary files which are deleted once the transactions are updated.


Allows changes to the Transaction file records. N.B. these programs should only be used to change dates or spelling etc. See notes on Maintenance.
