I've forwarded this to an individual who worked on several "standard"
implementations.  My experience has been with "Drinks" advanced pricing and we
made significant modifications.  Do you plan to price at order entry or
invoicing?  Do you combine orders on an invoice?  My experience has been that
the pricing routine can be very complex to maintain, however it seems to work in
the 1000 order/day environment pretty well.  It is also a "called" routine so it
can be modified without effecting the order entry process.
 Thanks,

We are considering implememting Advance Pricing in AO but have not ben able
to speak to anyine at JBA who knows very much about it.  Does anyone on the
list use advanced pricing or know what likely effect there will be on the
order entry process in terms of performance.  Is there anything else to
consider when implementing advanced pricing?

The business has about 20 people taking phone orders all day long with up to
1000 orders a day being processed.
