The COGS Analysis by Vendor Report runs the amounts of specified COGS types for designated Vendors over a selected period of time. This report compliments the COGS Allotment Report because it provides further analysis into the COGS Types and the cost of each item by specific Vendor. The Vendor listings also allow the User to dig into the COGS by including hot links to the invoices associated with each type amount.


To navigate to the COGS Analysis by Vendor Report, click 'My Reports' under 'Reports' in the left pane and then select 'Purch. & Inv.' in the top header of the reporting window. Once opened, a listing of reports will be shown. 

Find 'COGS Analysis by Vendor' and select 'Customize' next to the report. This will open up a listing of all Report Parameters that can be used to define your report.
