Hello,

The alternate base value is used as the calculation basis only, while the alternate calculation is used to modify the final value.

Alternative Calculation Type:

Normally if you want to calculate a value you have to use a calculation type for determinating the value. This calculation type is either addition, subtraction or multiplication. Similarly SAP also has got a default calculation type in the control data of the condition type. There you have the options of either Qty based , Fixed Amount Based or Percentage based.

Alternative Condition Base value :

If you have to calculate any value then you have to have a base value for it. For ex if you want to calculate the discount of 10 % for a material then you have to have a base value on which this 10% is calculated. Normally you take the condition value of the base price of the material to calculate the value.

Now you don't want to take the base value and take other values as base value which are derived on some formulae. So you create a routine which will do the mathematical operations in the routine and derive you a value which is now used as the base value for calculating the condition value for a particular condition type.

Hello Prasanta,

The Alternate Condition Type is used to specify 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 may be used, for example, to calculate complex tax scenarios.

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

For example, you may specify a formula that uses the value from one specified in the column subtotal,from the subtotal field and then modifies it slightly by multiplying it by 2 and using the resultant value as a base value for a condition type.

I hope this helps ur understanding.

Rgds,

Raghu.

AltCty - Condition formula for alternative calculation type:

u2022 It is again a Routine that is written by ABAP Consultant.

u2022 It is an alternative formula for the condition type that can be used instead of standard formulas.

u2022 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.

u2022 Ex.: 950 0 Profit Margin 11.

u2022 So we assign 11 - Profit Margin.

u2022 If new routines are to be defined we follow the procedure given below.

u2022 Go to T.Code: VOFM. - Maintain Requirements & Formulas

u2022

u2022 Click on the "Formulas" and then on the "Condition Values".

u2022 We have a list of routines, we can ask ABAP consultant to create new routines based on the client requests.

u2022 And we assign the application type.

AltCBV - Alternative formula for condition base value:

u2022 Formula for determining the condition basis as an alternative to the standard.

u2022 It is again a Routine that is written by ABAP Consultant.

u2022 It is used as a basis to calculate value of the condition type instead of using it from the "FROM" column.

u2022 Ex.: Freight - KF00.

u2022 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.

u2022 In this column we can mention the value as 12 - Gross Weight or 13 - Net Weight.

u2022 During pricing, the system will consider the value that is mentioned in this column and determine the freight based on this value.

u2022 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.
