Find that a negative Unit Selling Price is present on a sales order
even though profile option OM: Negative Price is set to No.


Expects an error message when the price is driven negative.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Responsibility: Oracle Pricing Manager
2. Navigate to: Modifier > Modifier Setup
3. Query Discount Modifier = Routing File Discount
  application method: Amount value:0

4. Responsibility: Oracle Pricing Manager
5. Navigate to: Price Lists > Price List Setup
6. Query Pricelist for Item = 123456 unit price: 50.00

7. Responsibility: Order Management Super User (or equivalent)
8.. Navigate to: Orders, Returns > Sales Orders
9. Query Sales Order, Line for Item 123456
10. Apply discount modifier on the order line
  Unit List Price: 50.00

  manual modifier used has list line: 164510, amount reduced: 30

11. Book and Pick-release the Order
12. Change the price of the item before Shipping

      Query Price list
      Update Item 123456, changed unit price: 50.00 to unit price: 20.00. Save.
      updated the value of the price list line from 50 to 20.

13. Ship the order and the re-pricing should take place
