Restrict price change of imported material

Dear consultants,

As we know that soon the purchase order is created, the system adopts the info record price as default value if info record is maintained  earlier for combination of material and vendor but the system is allowing to change default value as per user requirement.

Client requirement:-

  1. For imported material such price should not be edited by any users while creating PO ( by means we need to make such price field as non-editable field)

Assessment:-

  1. Hence I have tried out in standard setting to do so, but could not.
  2. Functionally, I have made logic that if the material group is “ Import-RM1” in PO, the system should grey the field of price so that user will have any any chance to edit the same.

Kindly let me know where i can put such logic or other methods to deal above points.

Regarding

    Dear Praveer,

    There are two way you can do this process.

    1. Kindly create new document type for this import activity and make the net price field as Display.

    (Or)

    2. Put enhancement with material group in the following BADI "ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST".

    • Dear Praveer,

      Kindly ask your ABAPer's to use this BADI during PO creation, Inform them to check in-run time whether the value coming from info-record or not with the material group combination.

      If yes then the PO price field should be display, if no then it should be open for manual feed.

      Kindly communicate the same to your technical person and it is small enhancement only.

      Thank You....

    In Badi ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST with the help of ABAPer.

    As of my knowledge, Material group wise field selection is certainly not possible in standard configuration. Field selection can be set with regards to T-code, Document type, Item category with standard configuration.

    Hi,

    You can achieve this if you have different PO document type for Import to which the field selection group will be different like NBF. You have to maintain the field selection for that particular group in below path

    MM-Purchasing-Purchase order-define screen layout at document level.

    here possible to make the fields as Required entry, Optional entry and Display. in your case make the Net price as Display only for that particular field selection group which is assigned to Import PO doc type. otherwise you can create new field selection group also.

    Hi,

       The import purchase can be well identified at header level itself by vendor number (and vendor country) and usually there will be a different pricing procedure for import purchase if you are supporting Indian client. In this case, you can very well propose a different document type for import purchase and maintain a different field selection group for the new document type. Maintain the net price field as noneditable for the new field selection group.

       If its a different pricing procedure and different gross price condition type, then you can even maintain the gross price condition type as "no changes possible" in M/06 as shown below:

      

       Please test the scenario and revert back. If required, you may go for a different condition type for gross price by copying PB00 also.

       If you still want to proceed with same document type, then you have to check the feasibility of development. You may check whether a custom routine in VOFM (and assigned to the gross price cond type in pricing procedure) can fulfill your requirement. Please check the same with technical team.

    Regards,
