You use the Update Contract Prices batch job to update prices on service contracts that need price updates. You can also use the batch job to print a test report.
When you run the batch job to update contract prices, the program updates the contract value of service items as specified and recalculates relevant amounts on the service contract and on the service items included. The test report shows the contracts numbers, customer numbers, contract amounts, price update percentages and any errors that occur.
You can define what is included in the batch job by setting filters. You can set additional fields on the tab by clicking the Field field and then clicking the AssistButton that appears to the right. You can also determine what is shown in the batch job by filling in the fields on the Options tab. Fill in the fields as follows:
Contract No.: Here you can enter the contract numbers that you want to include in the batch job.
Item Filter: Here you can specify which items you want to include in the batch job. To see the existing item numbers, click the Filter field, then click the AssistButton that appears to the right.
Click the up-arrow in the lower left-hand corner of the window to see the result of the filters that you have defined for the table.
Update to Date: Enter the date up to which you want to update prices. The batch job will include contracts with next price update dates on or before this date.
Price Update %: Enter the price update for the service item contract values in percentages.
Action: Click Update Contract Prices if you want the batch job to perform the price update. Click Print Only if you only want to print a test report based on the selected criteria.
