Hi All,

I've got a client, that when I first setup interchange for them they 
wanted an across the board discount. So, I set this up for them; it 
affects every item in inventory. Now, they've discovered that this 
discount rate when applied to a few certain products is a "bad" thing 
and want to excempt this particular product from the global discount 
rate, and apply a lesser discount to only these items.

My method for applying the global discount is thus:
PriceField      0
#AutoModifier   pricing:price_group
CommonAdjust    products:price, -50%, pricing:q2,q10,q25,q50,q100, 
;products        :price, ;$

What would be the best solution for applying a 20% discount to the items 
that they're wanting excluded from the global discount?

The first thing that came to mind was placing a block of code on the 
flypage and shopping cart that actually looks for specific items numbers 
and when finding them checks the retail price and then applies the new 
discount accordingly. Would this be the best course of action or is 
there another way I should consider?
