Hi Ed,

I checked both files and in both files and the following is what I found 
in those files:

PriceField      0
CommonAdjust    :sale_price, ;:price, ;$, ==:options

I suspected that the value of "PriceField" was a boolean value so I 
opened up these files on our test installation on the development server 
and changed the values in both files to 1, but doing so didn't seem to 
make a difference. I'm now wondering what else I've missed. I was 
reading through the documentation this afternoon, but wasn't able to 
make much sense of anything quite yet.
