SECTION 126.96.36.199 - PRICE CHANGES - ADD PERCENTAGE
USAGE: To add (or subtract) a percentage amount to a price code for all or a range of Inventory items. This option is used when you have to add, say, 5% to price 4. If you need to an absolute amount, choose the ADD VALUE option, instead.
DISCUSSION: When you start the program you will initially be asked the following questions:
ADD This is the percentage 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.
