    Hi,

    1) material determination reasons for substitution(OVRQ),

    this is very imp question.

    You have options here

    <b>Description</b>: - Advertising campaign

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

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

    <b>Strategy</b>: - 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.

    <b>Out come</b>: - 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.

    Most of the question will on this only

    Thanks

    Hi Rahul

    Material determination enables the automatic substitution of materials in sales documents during sales order processing. For example, during the course of a sales promotion, the system can, during sales order entry, automatically substitute a material that has promotional packaging. A consumer product may have a special wrapper for, for example, the Christmas season. Using material determination, the system substitutes the material only during the specified period.

    In the standard order processing cycle, a customer requests a specific product that you then ship. In reality, however, there are situations where you want to substitute the product ordered with an alternative, for example a product that is repackaged for Christmas, or with a free sample or coupon.Product selection functions rely heavily on the condition technique and material determination.With product selection functions, you can set the system to automatically select products according to their availability and priority. For tracking purposes, the system stores data about what the customer has ordered. You can use this information as a reference, or for printing invoices and packing lists

    Regards

    Hi..

    Material determination:

    "Material determination uses the condition technique to swap one material for another when certain conditions apply. Material

    determination is triggered by the material entered in the line item of the sales order.

    Use transaction [VB11] to create a material determination condition record. And [OV12] for configuration of material determination.

    Material determination is useful when old product is becoming obsolete or a new product is released by the company at specific date

    REWARD IF U FINDS THIS AS USEFUL...
