### Pricing print control

Hi to all!

In 16 coloumn table of pricing procedure, we can see the following options in Print coloumn. If it is empty then that condition type will not be printed.If we put 'X' then that will be printed. Likewise what rest of them controling? It will be helpful anybody explain in detail.

' ' It was not printed

X Printing at item level (previous procedure)

S Printing at totals level (previous procedure)

A Total: General

B Total: if value <> zero

C Total: if value <> previous value

D Total: if value <> zero and value <> previous value

a at item: General

b at item: if value <> zero

c at item: if value <> previous value

d at item: if value <> zero and value <> previous value

Hi SivaSubramaniam

16 columns - Define Pricing Procedure

 Select the pricing procedure which is the standard and copy it and create our own pricing procedure.

 Highlight it and double click the Control icon in the LHS screen.

 We can see that there are 16 columns in the pricing procedure, these are going to be used by the system to control the condition types.

 The detail description of each column is given below.

Step:

 Number that determines the sequence of theconditionswithin a procedure.

 It indicates the position of the condition type in pricing procedure.

 Ex.: 10, 15 etc.

Counter:

 System uses the counter to count the steps and also it can be used to count mini steps of same condition types. So that number of steps can be reduced in the pricing procedure and hence enhancing the system performance.

 Access number of the conditionswithin a step in the pricing procedure.

 During automatic pricing, the system takes into account the sequence specified by the counter.

Condition Type:

 It represents pricing element in pricing procedure as a base price, discount, freight and tax.

 The condition type is used for different functions. In pricing, for example, the condition type lets you differentiate between different kinds of discount; in output determination, between different output types such as order confirmation or delivery note; in batch determination, between different strategy types.

 Ex.: PR00 - Price

K004 - Material Discount

K005 - Customer/Material Discount

K007 - Customer Discount.

Description:

 System copies description of condition type from its description (V/06).

From and To:

1. From:This can be used as a base to the condition type for calculating further value.

1. {}From and To: The range between the steps from and to can be used to specify the range between same condition types. So that depending upon the condition type, the system deducts or adds the total value of those condition types from specific common source.

Manual:

 This indicator specifies whether the specific condition type can be determined manually during sales order processing.

 If we check the box then the entry is going to be manual, if we uncheck it, it is going to be automatic.

 For Base Price and Taxes, the entry should be automatic.

 For Discounts and Freights, The entry should be manual.

 If we check the box, in VA01 when we go to conditions at the header/item level, the condition type will not be listed. If we require we will have to manually enter it.

 If we uncheck the box, in VA01 when we go to conditions at the header/item level, the condition type will be listed.

Mandatory:

 This indicator specifies that particular condition type is mandatory in the pricing procedure.

 If we check the box, then in VA01 at the header/item level in the conditions tab, if we delete the value in the condition type and try to save the document then system will not allow us to do it and throws an error.

 If we uncheck the box, then in VA01 at the header/item level in the conditions tab, if we delete the value in the condition type and try to save the document then system will allow us to save it, without giving any error.

 Mandatory check box should be checked in condition types which are compulsorily required in pricing procedure. Ex.: PR00, MWST.

 If the condition type is checked with mandatory option, then value should be maintained for that condition type, otherwise the system will not allow the user to process the document.

Statistical:

 This indicator if it is activated will not allow the value of the condition type to be taken into net value calculation.

 It is used only for information purposes only.

 This indicator causes a surcharge or discount to be set in the document statistically (that is, without altering the value).

 This is commonly used for condition types

o SKTO - Cash Discount

o VPRS - Cost (Moving average price/Standard Price).

Print:

 The value of this field specifies whether line item can be printed or not in the sales document and at what level it is to be printed.

Subtotal:

 The value of this field determines where the values of subtotals to be captured i.e. in which table and which field.

 Controls whether and in which fields condition amounts or subtotals (for example, a customer discount or the cost of a material) are stored.

 If the same fields are used to store different condition amounts, the system totals the individual amounts.

 These condition amounts or subtotals are used as a starting point for further calculations. You may, for example, want a subtotal of all the discounts included in the pricing of a sales order.

Requirement:

 It is a routine that is written by an ABAP consultant according to the business requirement.

 By defining Requirement in condition technique we can restrict the access of condition type.

 To understand the concept, we will take the example of the Rebates. Rebates are to be included during the billing document processing and not in the sales document processing. As rebates are given on the delivered quantity and not on the ordered quantity (in case of cut-off period for rebates).

 For rebates we use the condition types BO01 to BO05, and in the Requirement column we give the value 24 which is "Only in Billing Document".

 This Requirement will ensure that these condition types will appear only during the billing document processing.

 If new Requirements are to be defined we follow the procedure given below.

o Go to T.Code: VOFM. - Maintain Requirements & Formulas

o Click on the "Requirements" in the top menu and then click on "pricing".

o We have a list of requirements, we can ask ABAP consultant to create new requirement based on the client requests.

o And we assign the application type like V - Sales/Distribution etc.

AltCty - Condition formula for alternative calculation type:

 It is again a Routine that is written by ABAP Consultant.

 It is an alternative formula for the condition type that can be used instead of standard formulas.

 For example, let us take the Profit Margin which can be both + / - , so here this routine will help us in generating the value which can be either + or -. Profit margin is not a condition type so it cannot be classified as +ve or -ve in the V/06.

 Ex.: 950 0 Profit Margin 11.

 So we assign 11 - Profit Margin.

 If new routines are to be defined we follow the procedure given below.

o Go to T.Code: VOFM. - Maintain Requirements & Formulas



o Click on the "Formulas" and then on the "Condition Values".

o We have a list of routines, we can ask ABAP consultant to create new routines based on the client requests.

o And we assign the application type.

AltCBV - Alternative formula for condition base value:

 Formula for determining the condition basis as an alternative to the standard.

 It is again a Routine that is written by ABAP Consultant.

 It is used as a basis to calculate value of the condition type instead of using it from the "FROM" column.

 Ex.: Freight - KF00.

 Freight is calculated based on weight, volume etc. and not on the base price. In pricing there is no entry of weight from which the value can be referred like we do for discounts using base price. We have to get the value from the Material master.

 In this column we can mention the value as 12 - Gross Weight or 13 - Net Weight.

 During pricing, the system will consider the value that is mentioned in this column and determine the freight based on this value.

 Suppose we have Net weight: 100 kgs and Gross Weight: 150 kgs. And if we mention 13 in this column then the Freight condition KF00 will be calculated using the weight as 100 kgs.

AcyKy - Account Key/ Accrls - Accruals:

 The values of the Sales Revenues, Sales Deductions, Freight Revenues, Tax Revenues, and Rebate Accruals etc. are going to be posted in the respective G/L accounts in Fi Module.

 In order to do this we assign account keys/ accruals to the different condition types based on their classification. The classification shown below.

o ERB Rebate sales deduct.

o ERF Freight revenue

o ERL Revenue

o ERS Sales deductions

o ERU Rebate accruals

 For Ex.,

o For all Price condition types like PR00 etc. we assign ERL - Revenue.

o For all Discount condition types like K004, K005 etc. we assign ERS - Sales Deductions.

o For all Freight condition types KF00 etc. we assign ERF - Freight Revenues.

o For all Rebates condition types BO01 to BO05 we assign in Account key ERB - Rebates Sales deductions and for Accruals ERU - Rebate Accruals.

 This account keys and accruals are in turn assigned to respective G/L accounts. So the system posts respective values in respective G/L accounts in Fi-Co Module.

 This also one of the areas of SD - Fi Integration. SD consultants assign the account keys and Fi Consultants assign the respective G/L accounts in T.Code:VKOA.

A. STEP

This indicates the number of step-in the procedure.

B. COUNTER

This is used to show a second ministep

C. CONDITION TYPE

This is the most important component in the pricing procedure. The rates are picked up from this element, on the basis of the properties described.

D. DESCRIPTION

This forms the description of the condition type.

E. FROM

This is used to define the progression of the calculation and range of subtotals

F. TO

This is used to define the progression of the calculation and range of subtotals

G. MANUAL

This function enables to allow the condition type to be entered manually also apart from automatic pickup.

H. MANDATORY

This function identifies the conditions that are mandatory in the pricing procedure. The sales price is a mandatory condition type.

I. STATISTICS

This can be used to represent the cost price of the material sold, generally used for study statistical impacts of price

J. PRINT

The activation of this function will enable the printing of the values and conditions to the document.

K. SUBTOTAL

A key is assigned from the drop down menu; this can be used by the system in other area like Sis for reporting purpose also

L. REQUIRMENT KEY

This can be used to specify that the condition type should only be accessed if the customer has a low risk credit.

M. ALTERNATE CALCULATION TYPE

This function allows you use a formula as an alternative in finding the value of the condition type, instead of standard condition technique. this can be used to calculate complex tax structures.

N. ALTERNATE CONDITION BASE VALUE.

The alternative condition base value is a formula assigned to a condition type in order to promote an alternative base value for the calculation of a value.

O. ACCOUNTS KEY

The account keys form part of account determination. These keys are used here to define the posting of the revenue generated to respective account heads& to subsequent assignment to GL accounts.

PR00- ERL

K007/KA00- ERS.

KF00- ERF.& so On.

P. ACCRUAL KEY.

The accrual keys form part of account determination. These keys are used here to define the posting of the revenue generated to respective account heads& to subsequent assignment to GL accounts and payment to respective parties.

Hi Siva,

' ' : Condition line is not printed

'X' : Condition line is printed at item level

'S' : Condition line is printed in totals block

<b>The following standard logic is set out for these printing indicators:

Item POS of the last condition line is determined with 'X'.

All condition lines that contain an item smaller than POS in the pricing procedure are only printed if print indicators 'X' or 'S' are set.

All condition lines that contain an item larger than POS in the pricing procedure, that come before the first tax condition line and which have a non-statistical VAT condition, receive printing indicator 'S'. The same applies for condition lines that contain an item larger than POS in the pricing procedure, that come after the first tax condition line and an active non-statistical VAT condition.

Condition lines that represent a tax condition type are always printed in totals blocks with print indicator 'S' (set internally or externally).

Condition lines that represent a condition type that is not a tax condition type are only printed with print indicator 'S' (set externally or internally) if the condition value of the condition line is not zero. Condition lines that do not represent a condition type (i.e. subtotals) are only printed with print indicator 'S' or 'X' (set externally or internally) if the condition value of the condition line is different from the condition value of the previous condition line in the pricing procedure.

To provide a better overview of this process, 8 more print parameters are available as of Release 4.0. These print indicators cannot, however be mixed with the three previous print indicators ' ', 'X' and 'S' in the pricing procedure. This means that the new indicators are only taken into account if a no condition lines in the pricing procedure contain printing indicators 'X' or 'S'.</b>The new printing indicators have the following settings, and corresponding influence on processing.

'A' : in total: general

'B' : in total: if value <> zero

'C' : in total: if value <> value of predecessor

'D' : in total: if value <> zero and value <> value of predecessor

'a' : at item : general

'b' : at item : if value <> zero

'c' : at item : if value <> value of predecessor

'd' : at item : if value <> zero and value <> value of predecessor

Award points if it adds information.

Thanks
