Now we will discuss a small but yet an important concept of AX 2012 that is ‘updating price with maintaining history of all prices’ . The purpose of using trade agreement over base price is to record and update pricing items including both product and product masters, for transactions.
For this create a new trade agreement for selling price from navigating through Sales and marketing > Journal > Price/ discount agreement journal.
now create a new journal
Add lines, validate and post the journal.
User can update price of any particular item number of times. Now perform following steps:
1. Create another trade agreement for updating prices, go to lines go to Select option.
2. Mark Prices in relations, select either All in customers/ vendors or select table to select customer/vendor from the drop down or select group to select price group against which trade agreement was previously created, then click on Select at bottom.
3. Previously created line will appear in the trade agreement lines, copy line from the menu, another line will appear, close your previous line by providing To Date, to expire that price.
Now provide From Date and provide new price in Amount in Currency field in your newly copied line.
Validate all lines, post the journal, run jobs and check new price at POS or Sales order, further view Trade agreement or sales prices in sell tab of particular item, which provides complete history of previous and new price
