Work with item price calculations (DMR73201)

Every calculation model should refer to a corresponding Template, where the formula for the actual calculation is defined. The template also determines from where the calculation’s value shall be retrieved or updated (e.g., the purchase price in the Item file or a default value, etc.). The calculation is created based on the information defined in the corresponding Template for a specific interval of items.

Within each calculation model, both header information and item line information is to be defined.
