System is still saving invoice without mandatory condition type (R100)

Hi all,

I noticed a strange system behavior. System is still saving invoice without mandatory condition type.
In pricing procedure, ticked mandatory for R100. When R100 was missing, still system allowed to save invoice.

Do we have further configuration?
Or is it a bug in standard system?

From what I know, this is the standard system behavior - you can create an invoice and display it in VF03 even if pricing is incomplete.

My expectation as an end user would be that no accounting document is generated for invoices, where a mandatory condition is missing and that I can reprice the document after fixing whatever was the problem, then release to FI.

Hello Veselina,

I appreciate for your response. System allows to post the invoice as well (without mandatory condition type).
Your system behavior is also a good option to stop posting to accounts.


I will need to ask a few questions in this case to ensure that we are not missing out something obvious.

1. The billing document, which is missing the mandatory pricing condition, but was released to accounting - was the document posted before you transported the changes or after you set R100 to required?

2. R100 is a discount and you probably do not apply it to just any item, but you have a pricing requirement. When you go to determination analysis of the billing document - do you see the R100 condition with a message "Condition ignored (requirement xxx not fulfilled)." If you see something similar, then this is the correct system response. If for some reason you see that the requirement was not applied correctly, you will need to troubleshoot the problem separately.

Your question requires additional information. Please make sure that your question outlines the steps you took to find information and create the question again. This way members will know that you searched and were unable to find what you needed.

You may also want to include screenshots of what you're seeing, to help members further understand the issue. And please provide some additional details, as the question is fairly short.

For information, normally, we use R100 for Free Goods and you have not indicated whether the Business Process is normal or Free Goods

This is NOT a strange behavior of system! This is the standard behavior of SAP system.

You should have posted screenshot of pricing procedure.

See, by maintaining "55" in requirement column which tells the system that this condition type should only be considered if pricing indicator "B" is set for that Item Category else this condition type should be ignored.

If pricing indicator B is not there for that Item category then why do you expect that system should not allow creation of billing document?

Please close this discussion if it has cleared your doubt.

Veselina Peykova has also explained very well in her reply.
