__SECTION 3.5.2.1 - PRICE
CHANGES - ADD VALUE__

__USAGE__: To add (or subtract) a base amount to a price code
for all or a range of Inventory items. This option is used when you have to add,
say, $1 to price 4. If you need to a fractional amount, choose the **ADD PERCENTAGE **option, instead.

__DISCUSSION__: When you start the program you will initially be
asked the following questions:

ADD This is the dollar amount you wish to add to the
price. For price reductions, use a negative value. This field must not be left
zero. HiFinance will not allow the resulting price to be negative.

TO PRICE CODE Here you must enter a value from 1 to 8 corresponding to the price
code you wish to update. You can only update one price code at a time.

ROUND RESULT TO NEAREST If you wish HiFinance to automatically round the resulting prices,
enter the rounding factor here. Valid rounding factors are 0, 1, 5 or 10. 0 implies no rounding. The other options will round the result to the
nearest number of cents chosen, eg 5 implies that the resulting
new price will be rounded to the nearest five cents.

INCLUDE ALL INVENTORY
CODES If you wish to have the program update __all__
Inventory items, answer Y. Skip to the START UPDATE PROCESS question.

The following question asks you to enter both a
lower and upper limit. The upper limit must not be less than the lower limit.
The default answers define the extreme limits of the field. You do not have to
change all of these limits. Only change the ones you wish to, and tab past the
others.

CODE RANGE This is the Inventory’s code.

GROUP RANGE This is the Inventory Group.

BARCODE RANGE This is the primary Barcode.

OTHER KEY RANGE This may appear as a different literal depending on how
you have defined the field in **SYSTEM
PARAMETERS**.

To start the report, press <Enter> through each field or simply press <F10>.

Finally you will be asked, START UPDATE PROCESS. To begin the update, press Y. The computer will then scan the Inventory master-file modifying
prices based on the criteria you have entered, above. When complete, you will
be returned to the **CHANGE PRICES MENU**.
