From time to time, Cold Cut releases an Electronic Inventory File which contains listings for every item in Cold Cut's inventory, including all items which are in stock as well as items which are expected to be in stock shortly. Items are listed and identified as being one of the following:
The Cold Cut Inventory File is a quotes-and-commas delimited database file, suitable for importing into any spreadsheet or database program such as Microsoft Excel or Filemaker Pro. You can use this file to help you order from Cold Cut. For instance,

|Download one of the versions of the Cold Cut Inventory File|
The long version of the file, in compressed ZIP format.
Clicking on this link will download the large version of the inventory file to your hard drive as a ZIP file. ZIP format is a compression format that saves a lot of downloading time - for example, our inventory file of approximately 1800 K of text is only about 270K when compressed in ZIP format - about one-seventh the size. Your browser should automatically let you save this ZIP file to your hard drive, and may even automatically un-compress the file for you when it is downloaded, depending on the browser you use.

|Cold Cut Item Code||POKE202||The item code Cold Cut has assigned to this item. We do not generally assign different item codes for different printings of items - the item code refers to the most recent printing only. If you need a specific printing, be sure to tell us.|
|Item Title & Issue Number||Pokemon vol 2 #2: Pikachu Shocks Back||The full title and issue number for the item. For T-shirts, this includes the size. For videos, this includes text describing whether it is subtitled or dubbed. This field may include other information pertinent to identifying the item (such as variant cover description, or T-shirt color).|
|Item Type||Comic Book||The type of the item, in broad terms. There are only twelve different item types at Cold Cut: Comic Book, Graphic Novel, T-Shirt, etc.|
|Publisher||Viz||The name of the publisher or supplier for this item. Some items do not have publishers associated with them; this means they were added before our cross-indexing system was in place. We are gradually updating our systems to include publisher names on all items.|
|Bar Code||01156984311||The bar code number on the UPC of the item, if applicable. Most items Cold Cut sells do not have UPC codes. Only a few hundred items have bar codes entered in our database, but that number is growing. Not all items with bar codes have their number in our inventory database.|
|Genre(s)||Manga||We are gradually updating our database to include some basic Genre
information. Most adult items currently have genre "Adult", for
instance, and most manga books have genre "Manga". We
will continue to expand our genre classifications and
identifications as time permits. Becuase we have recently added
a significant number of genres to our classification
system, we have begun using genre codes instead
of full names. The Genre Codes include:
|Stock Status||In Stock||A short description of the status of the item in our
|Reader Level||mr||An indication of the appropriate audience for the item. General
audience items (such as Pokemon) have no entry in this field.
The three possible values for this field are:
|Suggested Retail Price||3.25||The retail price of the item (for comics this is usually the cover price), in US dollars. This is the price Cold Cut uses to calculate the "Total Retail Value" of your order. See Our Terms of Sale page for more details.|
|Discount Code||42||Cold Cut's discount for the item (in percent). Everything offered by Cold Cut is available at a flat-rate discount. You can read about our discounts at Our Terms of Sale page.|
|Creator Credits||Toshihiro Ono||A list of the writers and artists credited in this issue or book. Only some of the items in our Inventory File currently have creator credits, but we add them as we find time. This field should help you find books by notable creators, or find elusive materials for your customers.|
