    Hi Chandrakanth,

    Accout Determination means Posting of concerned revenues of a customer or a material of a perticuler sales area into concerned G/L accounts using Accout Keys. This Determination not only includes Revenues but also it includes Discounts, Freights and Taxes.

    The condition types used here are KOFI, KOFK (With Costing).

    We have to maintaine condidiion techniqe for Revenu Account Det.

    The key elements used for Acc. Det are

    1. Customer Account Assignment Group

    2. Material Account Assignment Group

    3. Sales Area

    4. Account Key

    5. Chart of Accouts

    6. Condition Type

    We do this determination using VKOA.

    Partner Determination means determining the Partner Roles for a perticuler Accout Group. We create customers using Account Groups. Based on this Account Group only system understands which partner role is performed by that customer. Like Sold to party, Ship to party, payer, bill to party, One time customer, Sales Representative etc. In partner Determination we assign Partner Functions to Partner Determination Procedure and inturn to Account Group. So, when you give any account group while creating customer based on that it wil understand which partner he will be and activates the concerned fields in the Mater data which are need to be filled. Eg. Account Group 0001 is for Sold to party but by default he will be ship to party, bill to party and Payer also.

    Like this way if you want to create a customer only for receiving the goods and not authorised to do any functions like ordering, paying then we create that customer using Accout group 0002 Ship to party.

    All these are determined using Partner Determination Procedure VOPA.

    Material Determination is nothing but if you want to substitue any material with another material for any reason like when the first material is Obselete or any Promotional Purpose or any other reason ( client Specific reasons) then we do this using Material Determination. Here also it carries Conditon Technique Process. But the major important thing here is the "SUBSTITUTION REASON" which we have to maintaine. Using Material Deteminatin we can also substitute a material out of many materials ( a popup box with other materials which are need to be substitute will come in sales order creation).

    I think this will give you brief idea about the three determinations. If you want I can give more documentation on this.

    REWARD IF HELPFUL

    Thanks

    Praveen

    Hi Candhrakanth,

    MATERIAL DETERMINATION:-

    A method to determine the material to be used in the sales order. Material determination uses the condition technique to swap one material for another when certain conditions apply. It is triggered by the material entered in the line item of the sales order.

    Maintain prerequisites for materialMaterial DeterminationSD- IMG determination –Maintain field catalog, create condition table, Maintain access sequences, define condition types, and maintain material determination procedure. Lastly create your condition records with valid dates and substitution reasons.

    - Creating a condition record: Logistics, SD, Master data, Products, Material determination, Create [VB11].

    Material Determination: - Substituting one product with other product is called material determination.

    Maintaining the records for Material Determination: -

    Enter the determination type [A001] (Material Entered).

    Material Entered: - Here enter the original material which has to be substituted.

    Material: - Enter the material with which we want to substitute the main material.

    Reason for Substitution: - specifies the reason why the system automatically carried out material substitution.

    To enter multiple materials as substitution select the icon alternative materials.

    This concept is based on condition technique.

    Description: - Advertising campaign

    Entry: - If we check this field the system prints the name or number of the original material on the corresponding output.

    Warning: - If we check this field the system displays a warning message before substituting the material.

    Strategy: - Controls whether the product selection should occur automatically in the background or whether the alternative materials should be offered for a selection in dialog box.

    Out come: - Controls whether the out come of product selection should replace the original entry or whether it should be recorded as a sub item of the original entry.
