Changes in Product-based Price Rule Upload Wizard File format

  • System will not validate 'IsVARStreet (Y/N)' column when user is uploading product-based price rule through Upload Wizard.
  • If user enters Mfr. Part# with Mfr. Name then system will pick the exact product and upload that product-based price rule.
  • If same Mfr. part# is present twice with different Mfr. Names and user does not enter Mfr. Name then system will not upload that product-based price rule.
