Classification Codes, Working with Vendor Types

Return To The Knowledge Base

Vendors can be classified using vendor types. Vendor types are considered a classification code. Argenta comes loaded with common vendor types to help you get started, but you can change them at any time. You can add or delete any vendor type by selecting Product and Vendor Orders or Classification Codes > Vendor Types from the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of the screen.


View The Total Number Of Records
Above every list is a pink label that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. This is a quick and easy way to count list items.

Search The List
All classification code lists can be searched by the code’s title. Enter the title of the code you are looking for into the search field to search the list.

Export The List To Excel
Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every List in Argenta had an “Export List To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

To Add A Vendor Type
Click the “Add a New Vendor Type” button above the list. The “Add A New Vendor Type” window will come up…



Type a name for your vendor type and click the “Add This Vendor Type” button. The window will close and the new vendor type will display in the list.

To Remove A Vendor Type
In the vendor type list, click the corresponding “Delete” button to remove the vendor type from Argenta. Vendor types that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the vendor type because it has been used to classify a Vendor. If you still want to delete it, you can find the Vendors associated with it by filtering the Vendor list, reclassifying all associated Vendors, then trying again to delete it.
