Table of Content :

I. Sales Report by Product

The sales Report by Product may not be as complete as the Sales Report Detail, because the sales report by the product does not display and calculate the discount amount given during the transaction.

II. Sales Report Detail

The Sales report from the Details tab is more actual because if there is a sale that has a discount, the sales will automatically be adjusted to the discount given.

For example, I try to make a sales transaction of Rp. 100.000, - with a discount of Rp. 10.000, -. If the case is like this, the sales report of the Products tab will still display Sales of Rp. 100.000,-. Meanwhile, if we access it from the Details tab, it will be explained in more detail and the actual total Sales is Rp. 90.000,-.
