This report shows the items sold with the product number, quantity, how many orders, average price and last sales date. It’s a good report to run to determine items that a customer used to buy but have stopped buying.
For example, this customer purchased 30, 5# bags of Ruby Trout, but has not had an order since 11/04. Could there be a menu change or is this customer buying this product from a different vendor?
