System design philosophy

The Maxton Stock Control programme is designed as an easy-to-use database including a Day-book for all the movement transactions.

Each year's Day-book transaction history is held in a separate file. These files can be deleted to save space or can be stored indefinitely. When stored as part of the system, the archives allow a history of a stock item's movements to be printed stretching back for years, even to the point when the system was set up. Any of these Day-book records can be called up, printed or displayed showing all its 'drill-down' detail including date, product, quantity, movement type, reference/invoice number, vat and nominal codes as well as item price or cost at that time.


For most businesses there are no practical limits or restrictions. The Maxton Stock Control system is not limited too, but works best where you have no more than 15,000 stock lines. Total Day-book transactions in any month are best kept below 10,000 and are stored in a separate file for each year. The standard system allows any number of years transactions to be stored and reported on.
