Stock Levels

Oct 16, 2007

Hi hope someone can help. Thankyou in advance.

I have a small database for my warehouse that sells washing machines, fridges etc.

I am trying to get a grip on the stock control.
What I am looking for when a order is filled out on our order form is the stock number will reduce by the amount sold. Not sure how to make this happen.
I have the number of units in stock under the products table

ProductsID PK

Sounds simple but for some reason I cannot figure it out.

Stock Levels

Feb 7, 2007

hello, i am new to this forum. i have been struggling on a project i am doing where i am tring to calculate the stock levles and keep track of them along with the re order level
i have calculated the current stock levlel, in a query called "stock level 3"
Here the total amount prodcuts sold are taken from the field called stock level.

Here is a break down of my original tables


And all their personal details such as contact details

This is where the order takes place and contains the following information

Delivery costs
Overall discount
Final Costs

Here is the specific details of one order.



Prod_ Unit_Details

SUPPLIER TABLE – with detaisl e.g Supp Id and account number


Money_Owed Delivery
Supp_Credit_ Limit
Overall discount





•In the query “All customer order details”, I have worked out the line total for each prodcut with in one order. I have timed the Qty_on_Order (customer order details table) by price (in the produt table) and by the discount(customer order details) this then gives the line total

Now to update the stock level I made a new query called “stock level Query”, where I added up the total number of each products sold, by adding the “Qty_on_Order” from the query “All customer order details”

I then made a new query called “stock level 2” where I calculated the amount left on the shelves by taking “SumOfQty_on_Order” of each product from “Qty_in_Stock” (form prodcuts table) to produce the field called “Qty_in_Stock”

I then made a new query called “stock level 3” where I inserted the same fields but an extra field called “Re_Order_level” for some reason could not add this to the query "stock level 2"

So far the system can add up the total number of products sold, for all the orders, and then automatically calculate the Qty_ in_ stock by taking away the “SumOfQty_on_Order” once a new order is made.

I then made forms where I go in my form to “customer”" and then to “making new order”.
Below is a sub form called “all customer order details sub form” . Here orders are made with defining "Qty_on_Order

I want to make a system which calculates for me i have ordered more stock then there is.
Howcan i now when i make sure when i place a new order in the query"All customer order details" , that if i order above the number of "Qty_in_Stock" (from query srock level 3), from the query “stock level 3”, that when I order more products then ““Qty_in_Stock”, in the query “stock level 3”, does not allow me to enter this and if it is possible please can you insert error messages on it.

I do not know if this helps .- I can not make the “Qty_in_Stock”, to appear in the actual table “Products”.
At the moment I can only update this in the query “stock level 3”. I am not sure if I need this so I can then set re order level which then comes up with an error message telling me when the re order level has been reached. -

As later on I will need to add on any products brought in from the suppliers to the Qty_in_Stock”, in the products table to be automatically updated.

"stock level 3".
here are the fields

Prod_ID (Products)
Prod_Name (Products)
SumOfQty_on_Order (from "stock level Query")
Qty_in_Stock: Products.Qty_in_Stock-[SumOFQTY_on_Order]
Re_Order_level (Products)

here are both sql from both queries

All customer order details

SELECT [Customer Order Details].Prod_ID,
[Customer Order Details].Qty_on_Order,
[Customer Order Details].Discount,
(1-[Discount])/100)*100 AS Line_Total,
[Customer Order Details].Order_ID,
[Customer Order].Cu_ID
FROM [Customer Order] INNER JOIN
(Products INNER JOIN [Customer Order Details]
ON Products.Prod_ID=[Customer Order Details].Prod_ID)
ON [Customer Order].Order_ID=[Customer Order Details].Order_ID
ORDER BY [Customer Order Details].Order_ID;

stock level 3

SELECT [All customer order details].Prod_ID,
Products.Prod_Name, [stock level Query].
Products.Qty_in_Stock-[SumOFQTY_on_Order] AS Qty_in_Stock,
[stock level Query].
FROM (Products INNER JOIN [All customer order details]
ON Products.Prod_ID = [All customer order details].Prod_ID)
INNER JOIN [stock level Query]
ON Products.Prod_ID = [stock level Query].Prod_ID
GROUP BY [All customer order details].Prod_ID,

please may help me and gice m,e soem tips it will be much appreciated or website/downloads.
Thankyou for your help, and if you find easier ways to do this can you help me.
Thank you so muh.

Adding Stock Levels Together

Nov 12, 2005

I have a database which seems to open many copies when it is accessed over the internet (via ASP) but If I open it on my compter over my LAN then it seems to open 'exclusive' and those on the Internet get the error message that 'file is already in use'.

So I have devised a method where I will make a copy of my database on my computer, clear all the stock levels and then add in the new stock.
My question is - how do I write a query that adds the 2 stock levels together?

Queries :: Update Query For Stock Levels

May 12, 2015

I have a form which has a list of stock we have available to sell. I can then create an invoice and put in the relevant details. I then can select a product and it will add it to the invoice (which is in the form of a subform). Then the user confirms the quantity of each product. This is where the problems start....

I want an update query which will subtract the quantity from the overall stock level and give me the new stock level. This is easy to do if the invoice is for only 1 product. But I it doesn't work if there is more than one product in the invoice. If the first product has a quantity of 2 being bought, it will subtract 2 for every product.

Queries :: Check For Expiry Date And Stock Levels

Apr 23, 2013

What I am trying to do is create a stock database and iv imported a blank version of the northwind template and filled it in with my own products which is fine up to a point.

What i also have though is i get weekly reports of the stock of each product with their batch numbers, expiry date and quantity remaining for that individual lot sent to me from another company. (So i might have several lines with the same batch number and expiry date but diffeent quantities) So what i want to ask is:

Is there any way for me to combine the data in the weekly reports with the stock level data in the northwind template?

What i want to be able to have is where somehow i can see the total quantity of eac product with the same batch number and expiry date and then it tells me when that batch has expired and it also automatically deducts the stock from my total stock when it gets to within e.g 9 months of the expiry date as we will not likely sell those.

I need to do this as at the moment all i can get from my database is how much stock has been ordered, sold and what we have in total on hand but if the stock is close to expiring then i wouldnt know and i need to be able to see when to order stock in advance as i want a minimum of 6 months cover and ideally 9 months cover as orders for stock dont come in straight away.

Also, how i can import the data from the weekly reports into excel/access easily as they come as word files presented as a table but the data is put in frames i think and iv tried removing them but then it all looks messed up.

General :: Changing Stock Levels For Inventory Database?

Feb 7, 2015

Im building an inventory database for my company and have the tables, relationships, forms and query's built but im struggling to figure out a way to make all the quantities move around when I have a purchase order or sales order that either adds to removes from inventory.

My database is fairly simple as all I need to do is track what is coming and going and what is the current levels of inventory. I have for instance a product table that has all the information on what products I have and what their part numbers, item number (primary key), description and so forth, separate customer tables and supplier tables, as well as an inventory table setup similar to the northwinds database. I used queries to combine my purchase order and purchase order detail tables and to combine the sales order and sales order detail tables to make sales orders and purchase orders through their respected forms and all is good in that sense but it doesn't move the inventory numbers just lists what is in each purchase Order/Sales order.

Queries :: Subtracting Stock Numbers With A Query

Jan 2, 2015

I'm creating a sales system that allows customers to place orders using a customer account. when a customer completes an order the number items in the order needs to be subtracted from the stock numbers of each of those items stored in the system.

What I have so far is zipped and attached,

The way my system works should be easy enough to understand, there are four linked tables that store information on customers, products and orders. What I'm really struggling to understand is how to take the values in the records in the Invoice-Product table and take them away from the stock numbers for the products in the products table. But only new orders should take away from the stock number when a new order is placed.

If possible I also need to be able to add stock numbers for example if a delivery comes in, and if it's similar enough could that also be done here?

Modules & VBA :: Changing Stock Levels Of Multiple Product Components By One Command

Feb 11, 2014

I have the following form and subform combination:

The subform is linked to the main form by way of the "ProductID" control. (It's hidden in the subform).

Basically, each product (the finished article) is made up of many components.

What I would like to do is this:

1. Increase the stock of a "Product".
2. The Stock level control on the main form will then increment as much as selected
3. Contrary to that, I would like each component to decrement the relevant amount based on how much of the component is used up to make the product.

E.g. If I have Product A and it contains 2 components of which component A is used once per product but component B is used twice, then when I increase stock of product by 1, then component A goes down by 1 and component B goes down by 2. But If I put two of a product in to stock, I would obviously need component A to go down by 2 but component B to go down by 4.

I am thinking I need some way to loop through each record in the sub form for the current form, such as "Do While Not", or a "For Each". And then stick an Update query within the loop, but to be honest I can't think of how I need to address it!

Auto Creating Record In One Table For Groups Of Related Records? + Stock Levels

Mar 23, 2008

Hey guys,

OK, your gonna have to bare with me a little bit as its hard to explain and if any VB is given please add a few annotations as I have to explain everything i do in a report (doest have to be too detailed, just to make the code understandable :) ) and if it needs better clarification feel free to ask :), but basically, I have the following relationship set up:

At the moment, because of the way it is set up, I cannot create a record in the transactions table unless an income record is given for it (because tb_income (one) to tbl_transactions (many)) but the way I want to work is as follows:

If you have a look at the tables tbl_transactions and tbl_income and their link. The way I want the system to work is when a new transaction is made, a new income record in the "tbl_income" table would be made with the date (in tbl_income) being the date at that particular time and all transactions created on the same date would all go in the subdatasheet for that one record created for that date; and if another transaction is made on an alternate date (say 00:00am of the next day) another income record would be created automatically with the date being of that particular day etc.

My other problem im facing is that everytime there is a transaction created, I want the stock level(s) field of products in that particular transaction to be decreased by the quantity purchased of that product but i have no idea how to do so

Any help?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Avoiding 20 Levels Of Iif-Then-Else

Mar 14, 2008

I'm sure there's an easy solution to this somewhere...

I have a query that is supposed to assign a wage to a production job if the range output falls within a certain percentage range. For example, if they produce 125% to 130% of their goal, their wage is 15 cents higher. If it's between 130% and 135% of their goal, their wage is 30 cents higher. There are about 20 ranges that my bosses want set up. Short of making the longest Iif-Then-Else statement in history, does anybody have any suggestions? Should I use a separate table and somehow try to integrate it into the query?

Macro Security Levels

Jan 7, 2006

I've written a db which I will be putting on someone elses machine.

I want it so there is a short cut that directly opens the db from their desk top. I'm happy about setting up the 'on open settings' so it goes to the default page etc, however what I do want to avoid is the macro warning at the start when access opens up.

I know one way to avoid this is to drop the security level down from medium to low. It mentions that this is ok providing the machine in question has good anti virus software installed - which it does.

So, here's my question. Is it really ok to drop the security level down or am I potentially going to screw up my mates machine . Alternatively, is there a better way of doing it

Many thanks

Multiple Levels Of Data

Jan 14, 2008

I'm fairly new to access, having done a lot of what would have been easier with access in excel. I've decided to make the switch but need one particular thing that I can't seem to work out.

I have a series of "Courses" which contain a series of "modules" and each module has various amounts of data that needs to be accessed.

Is it possible to have module tables embedded in the courses table. Or, do I have to just have one massive table that contains ALL the modules with a field that says what course they belong to. Then make queries that display only the modules of that course? Or is there another way to do it?

I also haven't gotten to learning about queries yet, so if this is the way to do, can anyone explain how or better yet, point to a tutorial that can explain how this is done?

Adding Security Levels For Different Users

May 15, 2005

I run a school library database (Access 2003) and want to set up a password logon system so that different users can get at different parts of the program - e.g. Administrator (everything), Librarian (can add and delete records but not change the database design), Student (can only access certain areas, read only).

I've tried using the security wizard to set this up, which seems OK until you then open the database again. I would expect to then get some sort of log-on screen next time I open the database, but instead it opens normally, but then won't let me do anything because I "don't have permission". I had to restore a back-up copy.

I must be missing something obvious here. Is there a place to look for instructions? Couldn't find anything useful in the help screens.

Counting And Checking N Levels In A Recordset

Dec 10, 2007

I need to work out how many components we have in stock that make up a Part - identified by being the PrimaryPart. Each part has a component, which in turn has another component, but different part have a different number fo sub-components, a simple display of the table I am using is shown below:

ID PartName ComopnentID No. in Stock PrimaryPart
1 Part X 2 12 Yes
2 Part Y 3 14 No
3 Part Z 15 No
4 Part T 5 1 Yes
5 Part U 6 11 No
6 Part V 7 25 No
7 Part W 20 No

The problem I have is that I need my vba code to check if there is a sub-compnent for the current part and if so make sure that is counted. So in the instance above Part X has 2 sub-compnents (Part Y, Part Z) and there are 41 bits in stock, whereas Part T has 3 sub-compnents (PartU, PartV, PartW) and there are 57 bits in stock.

How do I get a script to recurse X number of times to check.

Normalize My Table - Track Price Levels

Aug 22, 2005

i would like to have a table where i can track price changes, however i don't want this to based on an inventory order.

i have a table which has the amount of hours to be charged. i then have another table which has the price per hour charged. the price keeps on changing. both tables have the date. tableHours has the date of occurance and TablePrice has the date when the price was last updated.

i need to know how to structure the TablePrice. currently it is set as BillableHourType, Rate, EffectiveDate. If this is correct, i don't know how to run a query.

i need to multiply Hour*Price, criteria: Effective Date must be most recent date as of Date of Occurance.

All Help will be appreciated.

I posted this post on the Microsoft site and i got no good responses, i am new to this site, but if it is a problem of reposting, please let me know. i will not do it again.

Queries :: Append Query In Different Levels Of Tables

Dec 17, 2013

I receive the data from engineering team lets name it as MAster database( in DB2 database - Read only ) and then i want to assign the data to each member and staus will be updated by them.So my Idea is upload the data from Engineering team (MAster database) to my (Local database), i think of using Append query if there is any changes in engineeiring data after i append the data then i can use the Update query to modify the data.

But once i assign the job to every member from my Localdatabase, i want it to stored in a data base with their name because it is a huge volume data and it will go for years.The bottleneck is If i use the Append query here, the changes from Masterdatabase to Locadatabase will not reflect in Team members database? is any solution for this or i have to use the Update query in Localdatabase and also in Team memers database?

Subtracting One Query From Another?

Feb 23, 2008

Hi everyone,

I am familiar with databases and basic SQL, but never used Access, so your help is greatly appreciated!

What I *think* I need to do here is take the results from one query, subtract another query from that, then create a table of the results, so that I can make a chart in a report. I say that I *think* I need do that because I’m not confident that this approach is the best but that’s a whole other story...

Please look at the following tables below for an example. The Item table has ItemCode as a primary key. The Bids Table has multiple rows for each ItemCode showing bids for the item:

Item Table
ItemCode Date Address
JH231 2008-Feb-20 123 Test St.
KH831 2008-Feb-21 512 Test St.

Bids Table
ItemCode Amount
JH231 100.00
JH231 60.00
JH421 310.00
KH831 20.00
KH831 40.00
KH831 10.00
KH831 90.00

To make a pretty graph, I would like a table (so a query, or macro, or VBA or something?) that returns the minimum Amount for an ItemCode subtracted from the maximum Amount for an ItemCode based on the example above. What I would end up is something like this:

ItemCode Difference Between Maximum and Minimum
JH321 250
KH831 80.00

I hope this is clear. Any help on how to do this from you Access pros would be great, OR if I’m taking the wrong approach, suggestions on what I should try next. Thanks!!!

Difference Performance Levels For Diff Users With Seemingly The Same Set-up?!

Aug 18, 2005

Afternoon Folks,

I have a database that multiple users have access to.
We all have new pcs of exactly the same spec.
We all have the same oracle ODBC, which is linking to tables in an oracle database on a Sun F15k Server.
The linked tables are set-up using my oracle account with saved password.
We are using the same network.
We are all using Access 97.

Queries that are run in this database are returning results in just a couple of seconds for other users, and 20-30 seconds for me.

Can anyone suggest any factors that may be causing this discrepancy?
Or things that I can run/do to improve performance?

Cheers in advance, James
