An assignment rule is an assignment of a value to a database element in QAD EA. Although modifying component quantity is the most obvious use for assignment rules, you can also use them to assign values to any database element in pt_mstr, ps_mstr, and ro_det tables. For example:
pt_ord_qty = 100 + (safety-stock) / 100
pt_desc1 = "Item with color" + color
For a detailed review of all available data elements, refer to the QAD EA Data Definitions manual.
