Creating Stock Category

Filed under: Tally ERP — tallyerp @ 11:18 am

Stock Categories

Stock Category offers a parallel classification of stock items. Like stock Groups, classification is done based on similarity in behaviour.

For example,

Stock item Sub Group Main Group Sub – Category Main Category
Brand A 19″ TFT Brand A Grade One TFT Monitor
Brand A 17″ CRT Brand A Grade One CRT Monitor
Brand B 19″ TFT Brand B Grade Two TFT Monitor
Brand B 17″ CRT Brand B Grade Two CRT Monitor

The advantage of Categorizing items is that you can classify the stock items (based on functionality) together Рacross different stock groups which  enables you to obtain reports on alternatives or substitutes for a stock item.

You now have the details of TFT and CRT products, duly classified. You can also view the Monitor classification.

For enabling Stock Category option in the Inventory Info menu, press F11 > Inventory Features > Set Yes for Maintain Stock Categories.

Go to Gateway of Tally > Inventory Info. > Stock Category
