Splitting involving freight conditon type used in Delivery with Calculation Type B

Hi all,

I am currently trying to set up a freight condition type for delivery. So far, the solution works in that I can create a sales order (with the freight condition type), create delivery and add a cost for the freight condition type and then create a billing document which will bring the freight condition value over.

The question I have is when I have more than one line items in the delivery and the freight value is maintained at the header level. I would like to use calculation type B which will split the freight value by apportioning the value across the line items. I tested using the condition type in the sales order and can see that the value is split across the line items. However, if I only assign the freight value in the delivery document (not sales order), the value is firstly not brought over to the header level in the Billing document and secondly the value is not split to the line items.

If I remove the 'Group Condition' indicator, the freight value is copied over to the header of the billing document. However, the value is wrong. This is because the freight value is copied over to all line items so effectively the total freight value at the header level is duplicated.

Can anyone confirm whether this is standard behavior or that there is further settings in the configuration to be made?

In summary, my requirements are:

1. Maintain freight value in the delivery doc at header level.

2. Able to copy this freight value to the billing document header.

3. The value is apportioned across the line items by amount (similar to what calculation type B will do in the sales order).

Appreciate any advice on the above.

Many thanks

    I am still not sure about the problem of calculation type B but I found out that this is partly due to information such as volume and weight being only available at the batch level (sub item) in the delivery. As the main item is used for the billing, the system does not have enough information for calculation.
