The steps here explain how to use the import and export feature in Rockton Pricing Management (RPM) to make changes to existing Price Sheet Details.

Resolution

Pricing can be set up in a variety of ways using Rockton Pricing Management (RPM). You can set up Price Schedules where pricing is based on Item Cost, Item List Price, Price Schedules, Price Books, or a combination of these. With any of these pricing strategies, the Import and Export feature can be utilized. This example is specific to Price Books and updating Price Sheet Details.
