 +==Pricing Dynamic Part Numbers and Attributes==
 +
 +\\
 +\\
 +This feature brings us ability to improve pricing mechanism so that it can handle part numbers that are dynamically created in run time. This means that prices for products or attributes that have dynamical part numbers, and use price books can be calculated through run time.
 +
 +Two new application parameters are introduced:\\
 +1. **Prevent users from quoting part numbers that haven’t got a price in pricebooks**\\
 +2. **Prevent users from adding product selections containing attributes that don’t have a price in pricebooks**\\
 +
 +Depend on if these parameters are turned on or off system will behave as described below:
 +
 +- If the products part number is incomplete, or part number can’t be found in price book, and **parameter 1** is **turned on**, although configuration is complete and user won’t be able to add that configuration to cart (Figure 1), explanation will be given in responder, and price for product will be 0.

 +
 +
 +- If the products part number is incomplete, or part number can’t be found in price book, and **parameter 1** is **turned off**, configuration is complete and user can add that configuration to cart (Figure 2),  but price for product won’t be found in price book and price for that product in cart will be 0.

 +
 +- If the attribute part number is incomplete, or part number can’t be found in price book, and **parameter 2** is **turned on**, although configuration is complete user won’t be able to add that configuration to cart (Figure 3), explanation will be given in responder, price for attribute will be 0, but Total price will be calculated.

 +
 +- If the attribute part number is incomplete, or part number can’t be found in price book, and **parameter 2** is **turned off**, configuration is complete and user can add that configuration to cart (Figure 4), but price for attribute won’t be found in price book and price for that attribute will be 0  in cart, Total price will be calculated.

 +
 +- If both **parameters 1** and **2** are turned off and product part number and attribute part number can’t be found, although configuration is complete user won’t be able to add that configuration to cart, explanation will be given in responder (Figure 5).

 +On Admin side there will be two application parameters:
 +
 +Setup > General > Application Parameters > Configurator (Tab) - Figure 6
 +1. **Prevent users from quoting part numbers that haven’t got a price in pricebooks**
 +2. **Prevent users from adding product selections containing attributes that don’t have a price in pricebooks**
 +
 +;#; {{:adminhelp:pricingcalculations:pricebooks:figure6.png|}} ;#;
 +
 +;#;//Figure 6//;#;
 +
 +If you go to **//Product/Attribute Options//** tab in product edit, and edit some attribute, you will see that for the attribute values that are using price books there is a new field ‘//Price code//’ (Figure 7). Depend on that (price code and part number) prices from price book will be calculated, first from child price book, and if price code + part number can’t be found there, CPQ will look in parent price book for same codes.

 +
 +;#;//Figure 7//;#;
 +
 +If you click on ‘//View prices//’ on some attribute value that uses dynamic price code following message will appear (Figure 8).
 +
 +;#; {{:adminhelp:pricingcalculations:pricebooks:figure8.png|}} ;#;
 +
 +;#;//Figure 8//;#;
 +
 +If you are on **//Product Definition//** tab, and your product is using price book lookup and has dynamic part number, if you click on ‘View Prices’ following message will appear (Figure 9).
