The Foreign Currency Pricing Logic used by the Purchase Order Entry program is very similar to that used by the programs that create PO requisition lines. The primary differences are that
• The PO Entry program allows you to select a standby special cost record for a vendor/item and currency combination (standby special costs are not used automatically by the system during PO requisition creation).
• The PO Entry Program allows you to specify a specific contract number during purchase order entry. If a specific contract number is entered during manual PO creation, the system will use only the special cost records that have the specified contract, vendor, item and currency combination when calculating the Target price for the PO line. If a valid special cost record is not found, the system will return a price of zero and it will set the Price Source in the line to CC (to indicate a valid contract cost was not found).
