Problem with posting free goods delivery

I need some help,

when I'm posting the goods issue in VL02N I'm receiving following error:

<i>Item Material Description Delivery qty UoM Batch

000001 XAK 256 N50 CB P35 CN UR V35/ AUTOALARM DOG 50 1 ST

E KO 014

Order 2000574 cannot carry revenues</i>

First I don't know why the order no is 2000574 when the delivery was done to order 2065030645, but it's not a problem to me, the problem is why I'm getting the error 'the order cannot carry revenues' because the delivery is made to an free goods order and the order has values of 0 in pricing conditions.

Looking forward to reciving some help 😊

    Hi Marcin

    Check the following:

    Free Goods

    Also referred as discount in kind. Business can consider to offer discount not in monetary terms but in the form of free goods, ie goods provided without any charge when a particular quantity of material is purchased by the Customer. SAP provides two methods:

    a) Inclusive

    b) Exclusive

    IMG—SD—Basic functions—Free Goods

    Condition technique for free goods

    Select maintain Pricing procedure

    Standard procedure

    Copy as ur Pricing procedure

    Copy all


    The Pricing procedure contains the Condition Type as NA00—free goods

    NA00 has the Access sequence as NA00

    Select activate free goods determination

    Assign the procedure to sales areas using document procedure and customer procedure

    Select your sales area and assign

    S002 SB SX A 1 ZA0001


    A= Document Procedure (determined based on doc)

    1= Customer procedure (Determined from customer master)

    We have to maintain free goods condition records

    SAP menu—Logistics—SD—Master data—Conditions—Free Goods—VBN1 Create

    Discount type: NA00


    Enter sales org, distribution channel and Customer

    By default the entry screen is for Inclusive, Select Exclusive button to maintain Condition Record for Exclusive

    Inclusive: Continue, as it is to maintain the record

    Material: Product ID

    Min Qty: Minimum qty required to be ordered (10)

    From: From how many units free goods are considered ie 10

    Unit=Unit of measurement of ordered product

    Are free Goods: quantity free

    Add= The unit of measurement of free goods item

    Calculation: 1 Prorata


    What is the other requirement?

    The pricing procedure should contain the Condition type R100 that is free goods condition type. This condition type in the Procedure has requirement as 55

    (55 means only if the item is free goods then only value of R100 to be used in the calculation. Value= controlled by Alt condition base value 28 which states that discount should be 100%)

    Check whether your pricing procedure is created from scratch then you have to maintain the Condition type R100, requirement as 55 and altcbv= 28

    If you have copied from RVAA01 there is no need to maintain R100, as it is already available

    Create the order

    Ordered qty is split into two items

    M1 30 Pcs

    This will be split as

    M1 27---Item cat TAN—regular pricing

    M1 3—Item cat as TANN eligible for 100% disc

    How the item category is determined

    Main item:


    Sub item

    Z1ORNORM Usage= Free + Higher level item cat as TAN= TANN as sub item – Item category



    Select Exclusive

    The screen fields are same as inclusive except here there is a provision to add the material number of free good material, which is different from the material ordered. If left blank system takes both as same material
