FIFO Inventory- COGS & Inventory Valuation

Aug 18, 2009

I had been trying really hard to get some solution on COGS valuation & inventory valuation on FIFO basis. my daily transactions are typical sales & purchases.

Attached is the inventory in/out movement from Quick Books. in the column "Num" type bill is the entry from purchase bill whihc always has a reference as P/O####. This is how i will capture the landed cost against a PO., another type "Inv Adj" is inter warehouse transfer. Name is cusotmer, Inventory is my item number. in some cases it is like "2000", in some cases it is 10000:10121, and in some cases it is 10000:10200:10201 that is why they fall in different columns when i export them.

What I would lilke to do: 1) Run a report by month, by customer showing cost of goods sold on FIFO basis, I can capture sales amount by running another report.

Fifo Inventory Valuation ...

Jul 14, 2007

I have a workbook with a series of #'d tabs corresponding to different pieces of inventory tracked independently (I've simplified it significantly and attached it). I would like to use the First-in First-out inventory valuation method to calculate the current cost of inventory. A manual calculation and description of the method and the proper result is included in the sample file.

I have come across numerous references to here, via google, other messageboards, etc; however, when I have tried implementing it, even as described, it never seems to work! (Note: I've included the code and set it up per their instructions in the attached file...of course, unless I misinterpreted their instructions and my problem lies there...) Moreover, I'm not sure how I would implement this particular macro anyways using named regions considering the same macro would have to be run across several sheets. As a result, the named ranges would always pull data from only the one sheet containing the named range required by the macro . This begs the question of whether there a way to create unique named ranges for each sheet that would be interpreted correctly by a single macro running across multiple sheets...

If this is at all unclear, I would be more than happy to rephrase any/all parts. After all, this problem has been aggravating me for weeks, and I am at the mercy of this forum's gifted coders who may not be well versed in accounting theory.

First In First Out Inventory (FIFO) Userform

Nov 23, 2009

I have a worksheet containing data for a product my company manufactures. I want to make a userform with 1 combobox and 4 textboxes for first in first out management of inventory. From the columns in the worksheet the combobox = "Product", textbox1= "Container", textbox2= "Production Date", textbox3= "Warehouse Location", and finally textbox4= "Sheduled Ship Date".

I need it to work by the user selecting a particular product in the Combobox, based on that the first 3 textboxes are populated based on the oldest production date for that particualr "Product". The user can then input into the 4th textbox "Schedule Ship Date" the appropriate date, then hit a command button to update the spreadsheet with the "Scheduled Shipping Date" ...

Tracking Age Of Inventory In Warehouse FIFO Accounting

Mar 8, 2014

I am trying to create a worksheet that tracks the age o f the inventory in my warehouse. I am charged each week at an increasing rate and want to be able to track what these charges will be. I would like to be able to sum up the data below in a pivot table that shows how many units are falling into each age group, this would add up to a max o f 10 weeks o f increasing charges.

3/1/14 received 1000 units
3/6/14 ship 600 units
3/8/14 charge for 1 week at 400 units
3/8/14 receive 500 units (900 pieces on units)
3/13/14 ship 300 units
3/15/14 charged for 100 units at 2 weeks and 500 units at 1 week

This needs to be able to assume this is going on for 10 different items, I would like to be able to track the items independently and in bulk.

FIFO Inventory Method Balance Tracking

Jul 7, 2009

I've been trying to come up with either a formula or a macro (I'm a novice in VBA so it would probably take me forever to figure it out) to track the FIFO balance (First In-First Out) of items at any given point in time. I have attached a sample spreadsheet with the example and all the notes that might help figuring this out.

I want to stress that I'm not trying to calculate any cumulative balance or any FIFO pricing whatsoever; just separate tracking of the purchase balances at any point in time after varous sales using the FIFO balance.

Eliminating Sold Inventory From The Inventory List

Aug 8, 2006

I am not an excel whiz, so I will need layman's terms if possible. I may have found a solution to my problem under another thread, but I couldn't understand it. I have only briefly worked with macros, a very long time ago. Here goes...

I have an inventory list that has not been updated for sales of the inventory, only for purchases. I have sales lists, generally by month, in separate spreadsheets. I am looking for a simple, efficient way of either eliminating or at least matching up the data in the sales list to the inventory list in order to remove sold items from inventory (on paper). I am hoping the result will be a fairly accurate inventory list, and related value, so that a physical inventory count won't be necessary at this time. Obviously I could copy all of the sales info into one spreadsheet, sort by inventory number, then manually delete all sold items from the inventory listing. I am REALLY hoping there is a better option.

Second Tab Is Inventory Numbers And The First Tab Has My Inventory Items

Feb 27, 2007

I have a workbook. The second tab is inventory numbers and the first tab has my inventory items. I scan in the inventory number (unique) and it adds it to my inventory sheet. As I use inventory I scan the barcode and it inputs the serial number into my used inventory tab. What I need to do it when I scan the serial number for used inventory into the used inventory sheet to have it go to the inventory sheet and delete the line for that serial number.

Fifo Method Of Stock Valuation

Jun 29, 2007

I have a file where I want to make a report which will put the stocks having positive balances along with their prices and values.

Stocks are to be valued on FIFO (First in first out) method ie when the stocks are sold it means it were sold from the first lot bought and so on.

Reporting is required for Shares Held For eg. for Stock A, Buy qtn is (50+50+100++100) and sell qtn is 100 So total balance is Buy Qtn 300 - sell Qtn 100 = 200 Sell Qtn 100 will out of first 50 & then next 50 (First in so first out) balance held in hand is out of last two Qtn 100 purchases. The prices are corresponding to these two lots of 100 stocks.

Reporting will be for Stock held (lotwise) See Sheet 2 of the file attached.
Basis of price will be fixed ie no formula etc and corresponding to those lots.

Actually these data are copied from web qwery so formula etc are not required. For cost purpose, price and Total correponding the balnce qtn lot are relevant

In case more clarification required, do let me know. I will try to make them clear.....

Inventory Count ..

Mar 7, 2007

I am trying to figure out a formula for doing my inventory. I have items with control numbers on them and I would like to determine how many items there are. Example Starting #12335A Ending #12445A, if you subtract 12445A from 12345A you get 10, but in the inventory you need to count the ending number as it still remains in your count, so the answer is actually 11. I have been using for example =Sum(A8,-A9) +1 to get the correct number. However, if I have additional lines on my report that do not have inventory in them, they will show an incorrect total of 1 because of the +1 in the formula. I am trying to figure out how to do this calculation without having to delete and add the formula each time inventory is added. I have people that will not go near the formulas, so I need it to total with out having to be changed.

Inventory Spreadsheet Formula

Nov 5, 2009

I'm trying to set up an inventory spreadsheet for my work, but i'm running into a snag.

What I want to do is have three columns that interact with eachother.

1. Units in stock
2. Reorder Level
3. Reorder Tolerance
4. Status

What I want, is to have the status column react in one of three ways. Either "In Stock", "Reorder Needed" and "Out of Stock".

So if units in stock is at 110, with a reorder level of 100, and a tolerance of 10%, I want the Status to show "Reorder Needed" with a red cell color. But if stock is at 111 or more, I want it to be shown as "In Stock". Zero should be "Out of Stock".

Inventory Sorting & Matching

Nov 30, 2009

I have inventory on an excel sheet with over 1500+ items. There are number of columns including: product id, product code, description, price, headline, path etc. I am uploading this to my online store I am creating. And, I have a lot of duplicate items so I can place them in different sections of the store by editing their path. However, these duplicate items in the excel sheet only have the product id, and not the description, price, and all the other cells. Thus, I need a forumla that will find matching product id's and fill in blank cells with their description, price, etc. so it will match its partner completely .......

Track Inventory In / Out Using Excel

Oct 7, 2011

If I wanted to use excel to track inventory in/out, is there any way I can do the following?

I have a barcode scanner and I wanted to be able to quickly add and subtract quantities.

So, I want to create three fields at the top of list, one with the function to Add 1 to quantity, one to Subtract 1, and one simply to find (well I guess I can use excels find feature, but that would be an extra step)

When I scan a barcode into the "Add 1 to quantity" field (which only appears at the top of the page), excel will automatically add 1 to the corresponding field next to the item that has that UPC number. The same for Subtracting 1.

Setup New Inventory System?

Aug 26, 2013

We have 100+ clients. Each client has inventory in our warehouse. Every day we write down how many items went out to our client on a piece of paper and subtract that number to get a balance inventory. When we run low, we order more on a new FO number. What is the best approach for tracking this? I was thinking one way is to put our clients in a drop box at the top of the page and then the data will appear at the bottom, however I can't get that to work. I am trying filters to see, but I am unable to subtract the balance automatically from the last FO# and from the correct area.

Is there a way to choose a client and product at the top of the page and have the tracking below?

Worksheet To Track Inventory

Apr 12, 2008

I'm trying to make a worksheet to track inventory, not for sales but for tracking how many supplies are on hand in storage rooms, closets, etc. The worksheet will be used by as many as 20 different users probably on a network.

Because it will be used by many people, I'm trying to see if there is a way that the worksheet can be updated after every save. In particular, the amount that are "on hand".

For example, say there are 10 of a particular item on hand to start. Joe takes 2 and goes to record it on the worksheet. He inputs the 2 he takes, which now show that there are 8 on hand remaining. He saves the worksheet. Then, Jerry comes and takes 2 and goes to record it on the worksheet.

I can't figure out how, or if it's possible, to have the worksheet show Jerry that there are 8 on hand to start, not 10. So that when he takes his 2, it should show that there are now 6 on hand remaining. I've attached an example worksheet.

Counting Inventory Within The Paramiters

Oct 17, 2008

On one sheet, amongst other information, I have a record of how many shirts, hats, and jackets(1 or 2 or 3), each rep has, along with what sizes they are (S, M, L, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). There are two columns for each. On the other sheet I want to track our inventory. I came up with this to try to count small shirts

{=IF(OR(Hierarchy!$AB$3:$AB$260="S"),COUNT(Hierarchy!$AA$3:$AA$260),0)+IF(OR(Hierarchy!$AM$3:$AM$260 ="S"),COUNT(Hierarchy!$AL$3:$AL$260),0)}

But instead it counts all shirts. how I could modify it to count within the paramiters?

Inventory And Profit/Loss

Feb 11, 2007

I have a workbook that contains several worksheets. The 2 important sheets are Imports and Sales.

In reading the MS KB, the help screens and this forum, I found a way to create a pivot table from 2 sheets using Data>Pivot Table>Multiple Consolidation Ranges. While that PT will provide a basic inventory and profit picture, it only allows 4 selects.

When these products are imported there are several SKU's. What gums up the works is there are several vendors for the same SKU's. Each vendor has a different price. The selling price is constant so the profit made on each particular item varies.

I would like to be able to keep track of inventory by vendor as well as profit by vendor.

Using the Consolidation PT does not seem to work.

I also tried making one sheet to hold all the data. i.e. data showing imports and sales. However, each entry is driven by the date. So while item A was received on 1/1/07, it was not sold until 1/2/07. The necessary columns for imports are filled in while the columns for sales remain blank until it is their row entry indicating a particular sale. At which point all the columns regarding Imports are blank. I swear, looking at the data sheet with all those blanks (actually0's) is like looking at a mouth full of broken teeth. The resulting PT is also not attractive.

I can not imagine I am the first person to have this problem. How do others handle figuring inventory and profits when you have two sheets. Are Pivot Tables the wrong solution? What would be better?
