eLink retailmax.elink.supplier.pricebook.decode

For a given supplier read any price book they have provided and return contents. This returns information about their partcodes, products, prices and pricebreaks as well as outer sizes and minimum order quantities.

Supplier pricebooks vary wildly in the level of information they provide. This bucket will attempt to extrapolate missing data if possible. For example if the price list shows the price of an outer (12 units) is $60 but does not provide an individual price, this bucket will return "5" (Assuming that you can split outers and order a single unit)

Input Arguments

3's'Required. Constant 'retailmax.elink.supplier.pricebook.decode'
9's'Predicates to select data to return.
8 or 20'E'Maximum rows to return.
