    In the Delivery to Billing copy control, under the required item cat, there is pricing field. You have configure that according to the client needs. If they want the pricing to be recalculated every time, then you need to assign B

    For eg.you have assign B in the pricing field which will update with new pricing calculating every cond as of that date.

    Hi,

    The condition records needs to be changed in VK12 nad update pricing in VA02.Item Condition-Update-Choose option B

    So new price will be claculated based on new condition record which will read 480 instead of 400 and you can bill the customer

    Reward points if usefull

    You have to change the condition records with the new prices now with the correct pricing dates.

    Then you can either do a repricing by clicking the update button of sales order in change mode, in item condition screen.

    Also you can do mass repricing of multiple orders at the same time in the transaction code VA05

    Reward if this helps you.

    hi sub,

    First, for that order you cannot change your price after 5 months, if the prodcuts have been delivered on thath month itself. billing will happen only for that older rate. Pricing validity of that material, say it changers from 4 th month, then you can change it for further orders by using TC vk12. B- carry out new pricing.

    There are 2 Options available:

    <u>Option 1</u> -

    <b>Impact</b>:

    No change required in Configuration.

    <b>Assumption</b>:

    1. Condition record updated in VK11 / VK12 for changes in price.

    2. Copy Control setting copies price as it is from sales order, i.e Pricing Type - 'D'.

    <b>Process</b>:

    T.Code: VF01 - Create Billing Document

    In the main screen, select line item (each - one at a time & on the topmost strip --> Goto --> Line Item --> Conditions, Here in condition on the lower side of the screen, you will se a tab 'UPDATE', Click on the same & select option 'B' - carry out new pricing)

    Repeat the process for all Line Item or the Line Item for which the latest price is to be considered.

    This will update the Price.

    <u>Option 2</u> -

    <b>Impact</b>:

    Configuration Change required

    <b>Assumption</b>:

    1. Condition record updated in VK11 / VK12 for changes in price.

    2. Original Copy Control setting copies price as it is from sales order, i.e Pricing Type - 'D'.

    3. Configuration Changes done & Change Request transported to relevant Server.

    <b>Process</b>:

    T.Code: VTFL - Delivery Related / VTFA - Order Related

    Select the appropriate combination say Source - Delivery Type <b>LF</b> & Target - Billing Type - <b>F2</b>

    Select the required combination & click on Item. Say we are using Item Category <b>TAN</b>, so select <b>TAN</b> & go to details. Here change the Pricing Type fron <b>'D'</b> to <b>'B'</b> & Save.

    Now in the next step, goto Billing Document - T.Code: VF01 & execute the transaction. By default, price will be picked based on updated condition records & new price is considered in Billing.

    hi

    pls assign the pricing type B in copy controls at item level to billing.

    this is automatic.

    if u want it to be done manually,

    then go to billing document VF01, go to item conditions,

    press UPDATE button.

    ur prob is solved.

    regs

    Hi,

    order was created 5 months back with Rs.400/- as basic price. Now you have increased the price by Rs.80/-. So new price is Rs.480/-. This is the new condition record which you create in VK11.

    Now billing is created after 5 months. Go to VF01, enter the appropriate delivery number and press enter. Now select the item and go to conditions. There you will see an indicator 'UPDATE'

    Click on this and you will get various options Out of this select the second one which states - "carry out new pricing." Now the system will refer to the new condition record 480/- and not 400/-.

    Hope this clears your doubt. Reward valuable points if solution helps.

    Regards,

    Allabaqsh G. Patil
