AutoMinGpm

The Automingpm option allows you to force the price for each order line to meet the minimum gpm percentage that is specified for each inventory item.  If a qualifying Longcode record is found for the item being processed, the system will check the price and cost for the order line and it will adjust the price of the order line to meet the minimum margin specified for the item in the Catalog File.

When the Automingpm option is used, the price of each order line is adjusted to the minimum gross profit margin defined for the item in all price calculations (all valid pricing options will use the minimum margin logic).

There are two different types of Longcode records used to enable this option
