Pricing reference material

Hi.,

We use the field pricing reference material in sales order at item level field to

populate buyer's part number. SAP is checking the number against the

material master and giving an error. We need to change the configuration

so that there will not be any validation on this field.

Where can we do the configuration for not checking the material master and the pricing reference material should accept any alpha numeric key given.

Regards

Narayana

    Dear Narayana,

    The pricing reference material field in the sales order gets its value from the material master.

    Pricing Reference Material - Material master record that the system uses as a reference for pricing purposes.

    Use - The conditions that apply to the pricing reference material also apply to the material in whose material master record the pricing reference material is stored.

    I don't think you can use it for populating buyer's part number.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Thanks,

    Balaji

    Hi,

    <b>REGARDING YOR ERROR:</b>

    You are using a pricing reference material for your sales order item. The system is giving you error because there is problem in the records for the pricing reference material which you are using. Try mainatining the records for the material which is there in the sales order.

    A material can be sold to different buyers. So item 'A' can be referred to as 'x' by buyer 1 and as 'y' by buyer 2. So a customer has his/her own material number for a material which is manufactured by your plant. This is known as "customer material information record" which is maintained in transaction code "VD51".

    When you create the sales order then in the SALES screen, besides the material description field you will see the field "CUSTOMER MATERIAL NUMBER". The specifications of this filed are VBAP - KDMAT. This is always at item level as it is for individual item (material).

    What you are talking abou is the pricing reference material. In MM01 we specify this in the SALES:Sales Org. 2 screen. As the name suggests the pricing records for this material are used for the material you are creating. So you don't have to go to VK11 to create the pricing records for the material you are creating. The specifications for this field are VBAP-PMATN.

    Try maintaining the buyer part number using transaction code VD51.

    Reward points if solution helps.
