Symptoms

In Item Retail window, markup percentage is displayed different for the same item retail price,

Steps To Recreate:

  1. Department configured in RMS with RETAIL markup .
  2. Department configured in RPM with COST markup.
  3. Item cost set for the item as 40 USD.
  4. Open Item Maintenance screen shows item with cost of 40 USD, retail of 56 USD, and 40% markup. (56 - 40) / 40 = 0.40 = 40%. Item maintenance screen is using the COST markup, hence the RPM definitions. It seems correct to me.
  5. Open Item Retail screen for the first time. It shows retail price of 56 USD, with markup of 28.57%. (56 - 40) / 56 = 0.2857 = 28.57%. The screen is using the RETAIL markup, hence the RMS definition. It seems wrong to me, it should use RPM, and show the markup as 40%.
  6. In the Item Retail screen change the unit retail of the item to 60 USD.
  7. Markup is now shown as 50%. (60 - 40) / 40 = 0.50 = 50%. Calculation is now using the COST markup, hence the RPM definition. It seems correct to me.
  8. In the Item Retail screen change the unit retail back to the original value, 56 USD. Markup is now shown as 40%, using the COST markup, as defined in RPM.
