The Special Costs Manager is used to create and maintain the Vendor Special Cost records that are used by the Stream Purchasing System. Special Cost records can be used to define the purchase order price to be used when a purchase order is entered for a specific vendor, item, quantity and currency combination.
Special Costs Section
The main or Special Costs Section of the Special Costs Manager is used to create, view, and maintain Vendor Specific Special Price or special cost records. Vendor Specific Special Price records are available only to the vendor that they are created for, and they are used when a purchase order is entered for the vendor, and the item, quantity, currency, date range and optional contract# entered by the operator or provided by the system allow the purchase order or requisition line to qualify for the special price.
The Prompt Buttons that are located to the right of the Account and the Company windows in the Special Costs section of the Special Costs Manager can be used to select the vendor for whom special cost information should be displayed. When you press the Prompt Button or use the Prompt key in the Account or the Company window, the system displays the Vendor Lookup program. The Vendor Lookup program allows you to display and search for a specific vendor using any of the display and search sequences available in the program and to select the vendor that you wish to work with. Once you have selected (highlighted) the desired vendor in the Vendor Lookup program, you can use the Select Button or double click the record to return the vendor to the Special Costs Manager.
Please note: You must select a valid vendor record prior to pressing the Vendor Specific Special Prices Button. If you press the button before selecting a valid vendor, the system will display an error message indicating that no vendor record is present.
