Count Items marked 'In Stock'

Select options: In stock, show hidden


  • It may be easier to select by shelf location if these have been set up (To specify more than one location, insert commas (,) between locations)
  • It may also be easier to select by Alpha description (e.g. A-D). There is a field for this
  • Stockpoints, most pharmacies have only one and this option can be ignored. If you have activated more than one, then press the space bar (and Enter) to select the Stockpoints to be checked. 
  • Update the stock quantity in the stock column and use F12 to accept edit.


A report may be printed and stock on hand changed with;

Checking for Dead Stock


Select options: Dead stock, Not used (say 180 days), Show Hidden

Check the counts and record stock to be removed from the shelves and written off.


Checking for Error Stock


Do a report for all items In Stock and Sort the report by SOH. This will show items listed by quantities in Packs. It is not a perfect check but may highlight errors in some items.


Current Stock Valuation


Select options: In Stock, Show Hidden


The valuation shows on the report. NOTE: Toniq uses a nominal 10% mark-up on the manufactures price of medicines. Your actual 'Buy' price is likely to be lower and the valuation should be factored for this. So, if you know your average buy cost is 3.5% above manufacturers prices, then multiply the value by (1.035/1.1). MORE IMPORTANTLY, use a consistent approach year by year.
