can quickly create, delete or maintain special prices, multicurrency list
prices or item master file list prices. A new price can be calculated
using a base amount that can be tied to an existing price, standard cost

Price Maintenance Utility is available
for all versions of BPCS from 2.1.5 and up and comes complete

be rounded to two decimal places if desired.
Before the changes are applied, the user
can the option to copy the existing price file to guard against errors.
