Hierarchy Type Pricing question

Aug 28, 2017 at 10:12 AM

For the same sales order type(s) I noticed that on some sales orders Hierarchy Type Pricing field ( HITYP_PR ) is sometimes filled but not always with the value assigned in OVH4(A) - I checked in VBAK table.

This causes a problem later when attempting to consolidate several orders into 1 invoice as the documents with empty field will not be consolidated with the one with field populated.

Could someone explain why this field isn't consistently either filled or left empty?

Thank you in advance.

It is hard to tell the reason in your case, but other than different customizing at the time of document creation, another possibility is that the document was created with reference and inherited hityp_pr from the referenced document...

thank you for the swift reply.

I think we can rule out different configuration because I have same order type with and without data in HITYP_PR field with no preceding document - regular sales order types - as well as the same for order types that are always preceded - Service debit memo requests.

On the other hand even if we accept the field being inherited my question still stands for the first document: how come most of them have this field empty whereas a very few populated, what controls this field being populated or not?

Thank you.
