Continuously moving inventory - keeping a record without overwriting current information
We have an existing Inventory database in Excel that i have imported successfully. However now I need to figure out - if I can - how to 'track' the movements of any given piece of equipment.
For example we have a Computer Monitors that are 'loaned' to customers every so often. I woud like to keep a 'log' of the movements of each monitor - tracked by serial number and description.
I can add this in as a column, 'On Loan to', Loan Start Date, Loan End date etc, however when that item is returned, the loan agreement period is complete and it is back in OUR warehouse, I can only 'delete' the information and start again... can I keep a log (without dupplicating the record to confuse everyone or deleting the record all together from the master list, of who has had each line of equipment and for how long etc as per my columns. Then from THAT list I could sort/report on products that ar eloaned frequently for X purpose, again as per my columns.
Thanks! Hope that made some kind os sense...
