Price Code Viewer


Price Codes provide the capability to override/customize pricing levels by client site for selected inventory items.


Suppose you want most clients to use the standard 9 price levels (say, 50.00, 55.00, 57.00, 58.00, 59.00, 62.00, 63.00, 64.00, 65.00) on the main inventory item screen for item xyz, but that you have a special agreement with other clients for a different price level schedule (40.00, 41.00, 42.00, 43.00, 44.00, 45.00, 46.00, 47.00, 48.00).

To accommodate this situation, you would first create a Price Code, such as SA1 (Special Agreement 1). This Price Code would then be entered in the Price Code field of all Client Sites that are entitled to this pricing structure. Next, you would edit the Inventory Item Pricing tab of all records (including xyz) subject to this special pricing. The SA1 prices would default on Client Orders and Inventory Items entered on Work Orders for Client Sites with SA1 entered in the Price Code field. The regular price levels would be used for items without appropriate Pricing tab entries.


Optional. Referenced in the Inventory Item Pricing tab and the Client Site record.

If foreign currency processing is implemented on your system, price codes for foreign customers must reference revenue in terms of the foreign currency in the Inventory Item’s Pricing tab.

Registry Entries:

For Service Invoices, the system sets the work order inventory description using the Price Code (if the description is completed) and the Inventory Price Exceptions tables (shown on the Inventory Item Pricing tab). A registry option option enables you to only include the Inventory Description on service compute invoices – it is designed for companies that do not want the internal part name to appear on customer invoices. See Registry Report Service Invoice (sys-report-serviceinvoice) for details.

The parent Inventory Item allows for 9 levels of Material Pricing, but Price Codes only allow for 5. If price codes are in effect, and the default price level from the Client Site is greater than 5, the system now defaults price level 1 from the Price Code. A registry entry Price Code Handling (sys-ffv-global-settings) is available to always default the value from the Price Code level 1, regardless of the Material Price Level in the Client Site.
