Purchase does not update
Item being purchased.
This applies to Goldenseal construction
estimating software (for updating construction

Here's how to fix each of the above:

Item is Manual, purchase
prices are not used. If it's XXX Main

If it's Average
Price, this purchase may not change the average
significantly or is outside of the date range.
- Price updating in Goldenseal estimating
software doesn't happen from purchases with
Void or Job Cost Only status.
