Entering inventory data

Bar Cop is setup so you can enter data in a number of different ways, making it easy to find the best solution for you. You can manually type in data, use data entry forms, use voice command to enter data by talking, copy/paste data from outside sources, and when weighing bottles use a USB scale to transfer weights automatically into Bar Cop.

No matter which way you decide to enter data, the process to enter data is really easy.

Data is only entered into cells that have a blue + sign located in the column header. If a column header does not have a blue + sign, then you do not enter data into that column. If you do attempt to enter data into a column that the program auto fills, then a warning prompt will let you know that.

Things to know:

1) If you receive a cell is locked warning trying to manually enter data into a cell, you are trying to enter data into a cell that the program automatically fills in.

2) Data is only entered into cells that have a blue + sign next to the column header name. You can click the column header for a brief description and example of what to enter into those column cells.

3) Entered inventory data like counts, weights, purchases, adjustments, etc. do not have a delete icon. This data is automatically deleted each time you create a new inventory. Never delete entered inventory data manually, unless you absolutely need to change a number.
