In Full acquisitions mode, Koha stores lots of financial data, much more
than the replacement price of an item
(which is stored in the replacement price column on the item table btw)
In the aqorders, aqbudgets, aqbookfunds it stores a lot more information.
Such as the allocated budgets for each bookfund (ie for 2003-07-01 to
2004-06-30 the Non Fiction bookfund may have $20k allocated)
It also tracks how much is committed to each fund (orders placed but not
received) and how much is spent from each fund (received orders)
It handles supplier profiles, exchange rates, discounts, sales taxes etc.
All of this sounds to me like it wouldnt belong in MARC at all.
The replacement price would, but all the budgetary data would need to be
exported in some other format.
