    A condition type is a representation in the system of some aspect of your daily pricing activities. For example, you can define a different condition type for each kind of price, discount or surcharge that occurs in your business transactions.

    Example of a Condition Type

    You define the condition type for a special material discount. You specify that the system calculates the discount as an amount (for example, a discount of USD 1 per sales unit). Alternatively, you can specify that the system calculates the discount as a percentage (for example: a 2% discount for orders over 1,000 units). If you want to use both possibilities, you must define two separate condition types. The following figure illustrates how condition types can be used during pricing in a sales document.You determine the calculation type for a condition type in Customizing. This determines how the system calculates prices, discounts and surcharges for a condition. When setting up condition records, you can enter a different calculation type than the one in Customizing. At present all available calculation types are permitted. The field ‘Calculation type’ can however not be accessed if this field is left empty. After the data release has been printed, if the field has not been completed manually, the proposal is automatically taken from Customizing. After this it is no longer possible to make manual changes.

    If you use different calculation types for what are otherwise the same conditions (for example, percentage, as a fixed amount or quantity-dependent), you do not have to define different condition types in Customizing. You can set a different calculation type when maintaining the individual condition records.

    Condition Types in the Standard R/3 System

    The standard system includes, among many others, the following predefined condition types:

    Condition type





    Material discount


    Customer-specific material discount


    Customer discount


    Price group discount


    Freight surcharge (by item)


    State tax


    County tax


    City tax

    Creating and Maintaining Condition Types

    You can change and maintain condition types provided in the standard version of the SAP R/3 System or you can create new condition types to suit the needs of your own organization. You create and maintain condition types in Customizing.

    To reach the condition type screen from the initial Customizing screen for Sales and Distribution:

    Basic Functions ® Pricing ® Pricing Control ® Define condition types.

    A dialog-box appears, listing the transaction options. Select the corresponding transaction for defining the condition types.

    In the Conditions: Condition Types view, you can change existing condition types or create new ones.

    Condition Exclusion

    The system can exclude conditions so that they are not taken into account during pricing in sales documents.

    Material 4711 costs 150 USD. Some customers receive a discount of 10 USD per 100 pieces.

    However, a specific customer can buy the material for 100 USD. Since this is a particularly good price, the customer should not also have a discount of 10 USD per 100 pieces. Therefore, this discount is to be excluded from pricing.

    To do this, you must follow two steps:

    You must set a condition exclusion indicator for the price. You can do this in two ways: If you want to set the condition exclusion indicator a follows

    then you specify it

    for all condition records of a condition type (e.g. with condition type PR00)

    when defining a condition type in SD Customizing

    for an individual condition record (e.g. only for material 4711)

    in the detail screen of a condition record (in the Condition exclusion field)

    You must set a condition for the discount in the pricing procedure in Customizing for sales. If this condition is set, the discount is not valid if the condition exclusion indicator is set. Condition 2 is available in the standard R/3 System.

    The condition exclusion indicator is not valid for condition supplements.

    This means that if a condition record contains condition supplements they will be taken into account during pricing.

    in pricing for sales and billing documents more than one condition record may apply to a particular item at any one time. You can use the conditon exclusion process to compare possible conditions in order to determine such things as the best price for a customer.

    condition exclusion uses condition technique.

    Hi Rajesh,


    Condition Exclusion group is used to find the best and optimum condition type.

    This can be used to check the best condition type among one group

    or to find the best condition type in between two groups.

    For this we have do the setting by selecting the required one as

    available in the possible options like to be used within agroup

    to be used between groups.



    say when you want to give your customer a best price in a particular season as against a normal price but there might some discouts available on that material. In this case normally the system allows the best price which we want to give and promote more sale and also the discount assuming that he is a special customer. But we do not want to give him any more discoutns as the price is already a best price. So we mark those conditions with the exclusive indicator in the condition type. Now all those conditions who have a requirement 2 are excluded.


    We have used it to control item sales for a particular cusotmer. You can restrict certain customers from ordering certain items that you think should never be allowed for sale to them. A typical scenario would be excluding customers from ordering items that are not intended for their use. Strategy of identify to be excluded items could be many and one example would be items manufactured per geographical locations. In our example, we produce US and European items and they run on different power inputs, hence, had to limit certain customers from ordering European items.

    A characteristic of a condition.

    For example, in pricing, different condition types are used to distinguish between a discount that refers to a net price and a discount that refers to a gross price.
