Default Margins

The default margins are used when proposing new sell prices. A margin can be set for a department, department/category or department/category/group, and so on. The system will choose the most specific margin available.

Expand the combination tree to highlight the department/category/group combination for which a margin is to be defined. The system will automatically show any existing margins for the selected combination. Each margin will require a location and up to five margins, one for each sell price.

Manufacturer

The manufacturer this margin belongs to. If left empty, applies to all manufacturers.

Location

The location code for which this margin will apply. This can be a specific location or a group.

Location Name

The location name.

Classification

Used to group types of items together, for example Brandname and Generic.

Effective

Start date.

Expires

End date.

Margin 1 - 5

The default margins to be used for Sell Price 1 - 5.

Type 1 - 5

The type indicates how the margin percentage will be used. This will generally be 'GM%' which means use this percentage as a margin on the cost. However, it can also be set to 'Adj Sell 1', 'Adj Sell 2', and so on. This tells the system to modify the corresponding sell price by the percentage instead of using the percentage as a margin on cost. This would allow you to set the system up so that Sell Price 2 was 10% higher than Sell Price 1.

You cannot set the percentage to adjust a later sell price. For example, '% Type 2' cannot modify sell price 3 because sell price 3 has not been calculated yet.

Rounding Rules

Rounding rules are used when proposing sell prices.

Location

The location code for which the rounding rules will apply. This can be a specific location or a group.

Location Name

The location name.

The code of the rounding rule to be used by these items.

Cross References

There can be multiple cross-references recorded against the department, category and group for conversion to multiple systems. However, the System in each record must be unique.

System

If the cross-reference is being used for Venue Updates, a value must be selected from the combo-box. Currently cross-references can be set up for HIS, ISS60, SBA and ScanMan venue systems.

If the cross-reference is being used for Host Updates, the system will be the supplier code for which the host file is being processed.

New Dept Code

New Cat Code

The third-party's equivalent codes for our category.

New Group Code

The third-party's equivalent codes for our group.

New Subgroup Code

The third-party's equivalent codes for our sub group.
