This article will allow you to see how much your part valuation is worth at the time of running the report 

The default of this report will include all parts with either an in-stock quantity OR an oversold qty - in the parameters /  filters, it is referred to as the inventory quantity 

The report will report on actual cost (not average cost)

For example:

  • you have a part that has stock on hand quantity of 2
  • quantity of 1 was purchased at a cost of $10
  • quantity of 1 was purchased at a cost of $11
  • the actual cost this report will show for this part will be $10 + $11 = $21 


This report is only as good as the day it is run 

Blackpurl does not give you the option of back dating the report and have it generate for a past date

BUT you can setup Scheduled Reporting to have this report automatically run at a certain frequency and be emailed to Blackpurl Licenced Users

For further information on Scheduled Reporting, please review our article - Reporting - Scheduled Reporting

  • This is a good time to add / removing any columns by clicking on User-added image 
For example: 
  • if you are  balancing out your Blackpurl Parts Inventory Valuation totals to your Accounting Package, we would recommend you add the column - CATEGORY

  • if you want to Available Cost or Committed Cost then the user can add the relevant columns 

  1. If you need to see Summary Totals > click on

If you want to see more totals, simply click on  and select which other totals you want to see ie Available Cost or Committed Cost etc 

If you want to print / export the data > click on  and Select Output Result requirement


If you are balancing Blackpurl to your Accounting Package, we would recommend that you Group Records By: Category as this will allow you to compare the Part Inventory General Ledger (which is attached to the Category) to the relevant General Ledger in your Accounting Package

  1. Once you are happy with the layout of the report etc, we would recommend that you save it as a CUSTOM search by clicking on User-added image
