Information in this document applies to any platform.


An error is returned when coming from Config to Commerce either via "Create Quote" or "Add from Catalog". The problem happens when parts/products are added to a quote where this triggers the Formula as a default function for a commerce attribute.

Formula Error: Please adjust _price_subtotal on formula for attribute [commerce attribute name]

The error can vary depending on the Formula used where it has other commerce attribute inputs such as the one below:

Formula Error: Please adjust _price_unit_price_each [other commerce attribute], _price_subtotal on formula for attribute [commerce attribute name].
