It's not boolean, it specifies the name of the price field, and must be set 
to a non-existent target to enable CommonAdjust. For that latter directive, 
assuming you have quantity pricing in the pricing table, you would want 
something like:

CommonAdjust   pricing:q2,q5,q10,q25,q50,q100, :sale_price, ;:price, ;$,
