Quote Stock Grid

Scroll Prev Top Next More

The third section of the Quote form contains a grid that is used to record and automatically price any stock being quoted to the customer. Price calculations are determined by the price levels, price breaks and tax requirements, as set in the customer's card file, as well as the stock mark-up calculation, that is set in each stock record.


The initial view of the grid is the:


Standard View

You can rearrange the order of the stock lines within the grid:

The fields within the stock grid are described below.

Stock Code

The stock code will identify the product or service being ordered. Selections can be made from the Jim2 lookup – stock records via the ellipsis [...] drop-down list beside this field.


The description of the stock code from the stock record is automatically placed in this field. If you have set up multiple measures for this stock, it will use the description appropriate for that measure.


The unit measure you want to sell for that stock code is selected.


Quantity quoted.

Price Ex.

This is the price of the goods tax free (excluding GST).

Price Inc.

This is the price of the goods including tax (including GST) – the tax code is set up within the stock record.

Disc %

Tax code.


Recommended stock – tick for yes, leave blank for no.

This allows you to flag stock at a line level as recommended. When printing the quote, you can include both the total of the Recommended Options as well as extras. Very useful when used in conjunction with Kitting.


When printing the quote, this gives you the option of hiding individual quote lines or prices.


Total price of that stock line.


If you have just obtained a price for a stock from a particular vendor for your quote, you can record that vendor in this field. It will also automatically populate if you enter a Vendor in the Cost tab.

Only shown in expanded view.

Markup %

(this might be called GP% on your system)

This is the difference between cost and sell prices as a percentage. You can determine this percentage by entering in the price and letting Jim2 figure out your margin, or you can enter the cost and a percentage (say, 10% margin) and let Jim2 calculate the price.

The field, and actual figures displayed, depend on the Show Profit Percent as .. choice, made in Tools > Options > Job.
