This is an Optional BSMGR program for Windows users only.

(Call BSMGR if you are interested in purchasing this program.)

The GRAPH program is set up to automatically graph BSMGR information:

You may also go directly into the GRAPH program yourself and create graphs unrelated to these BSMGR programs by entering <GRAPH> in the "Enter Program Name" field and pressing <Enter>.

 Before you will be able to graph any figures from the BSMGR programs referred to above, you will need to make some entries in:

 SYStem Config File

Set up SYStem, Config File, Change Misc. Configurations, number 7046.

G/L Accounts

Open the GLM program and go into each of your general ledger accounts that are Type "A" (Regular [A]ccounts). (Do not go into the [H]eader or [T]otal Accounts.)  (Your Chart of Accounts might be helpful as a reference in identifying the "A" accounts when making these entries.)

In the "Graph Category" field, make the appropriate selections from the list box provided according to the "Account Type."

a.    Asset Accounts

Current Assets


Plant Assets

When an "Inventory" account category is selected, the "Revenue Dept" field will activate.  You may use this to put your inventory into 48 different groups, to associate the inventory account with a revenue department (1-48) within your cash register setup.  This allows you to compare inventory with sales.

b.    Capital Accounts:

Not Used for Capital

c.    Liability Accounts:

Short Term

Long Term

d.    Income Accounts:


Not Used

The divisions you have set up in your SYStem Config File, Change Misc. Configurations, number  7046 determine the “Income” account graph categories above.  (Sales group descriptions.)

e.    Expense Accounts:


Not Used
Cost of Goods

The first two expense account graph categories default to "Cost of Goods" and "Salaries."  The divisions you enter on your SYStem Config File, Change Misc. Configurations, number  7046 determine the other six.  (Expense group descriptions.)




There are five graph/chart choices:

The illustration above is a "Stacked Bar Graph."

Show Scrolling Subsets

This option allows you to display all subsets on one graph or each subset on a separate graph.  For example, when comparing sales totals in SLA, each year can be displayed separately or all together.

Maximize Image

This option allows you to enlarge the graph to fill the entire screen.
