Duplicate Value Issue while creating Price Rule for Cost Range has been fixed

Before Release

While creating a price rule for "Cost Range", user was entering value in either 'Cost From' (Minimum Cost) and 'Cost To' (Maximum Cost) field while leaving the other field blank. This was resulting in duplication of values.

After Release

Now while creating a price rule for "Cost Range", if user does not enter value in 'Cost From' (Minimum Cost), system will assign "$0" value to this field. On the other hand if the user does not enter value in "Cost To" field then the system will assign "$ 999,999,999,999" value to this field.
