Frequently Asked Questions


Why are there various reports for the same product?

Products and Markets are defined by the level at which the product is sold in a particular market. Thus reports will exist for a particular product at the manufacturing level, i.e. the market level at which a manufacturer sells; and reports will exist for the same product at a wholesale and a retail level. The market value of the product will of course vary according to the market level analysed. Readers should ensure that they are fully aware of the market level at which a report is providing data.


Why are the report pages formatted into frames and tables?

The report pages are produced in frames and tables, rather than more dynamic web pages, to allow users to directly use the pages in printed documents. Users may open any of the '.htm' pages as a Word Processor page and then edit and save it to a print document or other file type.
