  • If you are using MS Great Plains, List price is sale price
    Current cost are cost to replace the items, this field will be pull to cost sale invoice, quote and order.
    Standard cost are production cost. I hope this is help. I had trouble figuring this out in the beging of GP implementation too.

  • Functionally, there is not a lot of difference as they can all be used for the basis of the price in the price list. List Price is generally considered to be the 'standard price' or RRP. As for the current cost and standard cost, I'm yet to see a good explanation of the difference but they appear to be little more than two slots for the costs of goods.

    What I generally tell clients is they can mean whatever you want them to mean.
