Differences between info records and conditions

In pricing of purchasing, I have found using both info records and conditions. Also in the menu path <b><i>Logistics->Material Management->Purchasing->Master data</i></b> have both 'Info record' and 'condition' menu folder.

I want to know the differences between info record and condition and where to use them respectively. Anyone can help me?

Thanks a lot!

    Hi ,

    Condition enables you to store pricing stipulations agreed with the vendor (such as applicable discounts or surcharges, or stipulations regarding the payment of freight costs) in the system. You can enter these conditions in quotations, outline purchase agreements, and info records. You also have the option of entering general conditions at vendor level, for example. The system then applies the conditions in determining the price in purchase orders (POs). You can enter further conditions in the PO itself.

    Simply put - Info-record is a type of condition record.

    Purpose of Condition Records for S&D

    Condition records allow you to store and retrieve pricing data in the system. All the pricing elements of your daily business - the prices, discounts, and surcharges for freight and taxes - that you want to use for automatic pricing must be stored in the system as condition records. You can define as many condition records as you want for the different pricing elements for any validity period.

    You create condition records for all the pricing elements that the system takes into account during automatic pricing. During document processing, the system transfers data from the condition records and determines the amounts for individual pricing elements (prices, discounts and surcharges) and the final amount for the sales document.

    Info record - Information about a material procuring from a vendor where you can enter what will be standard quantity, taxcode applicable, delivery tolerances apart from pricing conditions. These information filled will pass on to purchasing documents including pricing conditions.

    Condition Record - Just to maintain the pricing conditions. Price will be copied to the purchasing documents.

    Dont forget to mention whether it is useful.

      Info record is for the combination of material and vendor. It contains time dependant conditions only.

      Thru conditions, we can maintain general conditions like seasonal discounts. These are valid in that particular periods only.
