• The unit price and tax status are automatically filled in based on the Item Card. The price is determined by the price level assigned to the customer. You can change the unit price for this sales order. The tax status of an item can only be changed in the Item Card.

• The E.T.A. column displays the E.T.A. date from the Item Card if there isn't enough inventory to fill the order.

Depending on how the bundle is set up, prices may appear in the bundle line or in the lines for the component items. See "Working with Builds and Bundles" in Chapter 5 for more information.
