D-06 Default Item Cost for Billed Items

The default item cost is the amount to be charged for replacing an item that is not returned IF the item record does not contain a PRICE, i.e. has 0.00 in the PRICE field. If there is no PRICE in the item record, the default item cost is based on information found in the Loan Rule for the item at the time of checkout.
