Reports for purchasing activity are available through the UC Flex Business Warehouse (BW) system. They appear in the "Purchasing Decentral" folder when users log into BW.
Several of the Purchasing reports have been developed as "all-purpose" reports, allowing the user to select records and customize the resulting output in many different ways. If a large date range is selected, the report may take longer to run. It is recommended that users do not select more than one year at a time.
Purchasing reports operate similarly to other BW reports. Questions regarding how to use these reports and the data should be directed to 513-556-2387.
