Mass Price Change

Mass Price Change

Application Overview


The Mass Price Change application allows you to modify the prices for a range of items.  The program will request a range of item numbers, a specific product category, the percentage of increase or decrease and whether you wish to update price codes in the Price Code file.  The program will then update the prices for all items in the Inventory Item File within the item range that also belong to the entered product category.


This enables you to easily adjust groups of prices so that you can respond quickly to price changes that affect product categories.


Run Instructions


    Select Mass Price Change from the pull down COP Util-Setup window.  The following screen will then be displayed:





The following options are available:


    *  Select the desired mode from the Mass Price Change menu bar


    *  Enter the parameters that are requested for the range of items that will have their prices affected.


    *  A confirmation screen will then appear.  This screen will display your parameter selection and ask if you are sure you wish to go ahead with the processing.  If you answer Y, processing will commence and the program will return for entry of new parameters once processing is complete.  If you answer N, the program will return to the parameter entry screen without processing any item.


To return to the menu bar, press the ESC or F10 key. To leave this application, press X for EXIT when positioned at the menu bar.
