    Hello Durgaprasad,

    Alternative calculation type - specifies that the system is to use the formula represented in this column as an alternative in finding the value of the condition type, rather than by using the standard condition technique. This can be used to calculate complex tax scenarios. This field is used in obtaining values such as “Net Price”, ‘Profit Margin’ – where there wouldn’t be any access sequence to get the required value. Instead the system calculates net value using the existing amounts and the alternative calculation types. (formula: profit margin = net value – cost price)

    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. For example, one can specify a formula that uses a subtotal, such as 4, from the subtotal field; modify it slightly, such as dividing it by 2, and then using the resultant value as a base value for the condition type

    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.

    Alternative calculation type:

    Suppose my gross price (PB) is Rs.100 for some metal per kg and I want to calculate surcharge based on todays RBI index of commodity rather than simply giving some 2%. I want to account todays RBI index in determinig Condition value.

    It is possible to do that by little alteration of regular routine.

    Alternate Condition base value:

    I am procuring 5 different variety of pens at different quantities at varying rates from 0 to 25 in a sing le PO. And I get the total header value of 1000. I will get a discount of 10% if the PO value reaches 1000. I have to subsequently pass on the discount of Rs.100 now to all the 5 line items. In general SAP calculates it based on the values of each line item and proportionately distributes. However If i want this discount to be distributed according to the quantity of each pen. You can acheive this with little alteration of Routine.

    Reward if helpful.
