### key differencess bet'n Altrnative condtion base value and Alternative calcu

Hi All

I read many times even though I have dought in pricing where in, differentating Altrnative condtion base value and Alternative calculation type.

I know these two are forumalas.

I am looking for key differencess bet'n Altrnative condtion base value and Alternative calculation type

Where & which senario I can make out the differnces bet'n Altrnative condtion base value and Alternative calculation type.

Please explain in details which can keep in mind for long run...

Regards,

Ramkrishna.

Hi Rama krishna

go thru this....u can make difference and will have idea too

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.

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

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

We have a list of routines, we can ask ABAP consultant to create new routines

based on the client requests. 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.

Thanks and regards

Chandra

Hi Rama,

There is quite significant difference between Altrnative condtion base value and Alternative calculation type.

1. Altrnative condtion base value:

when we talk about Altrnative condtion base value, this refers to as which valus is to be taken for calcultions. here, main concern is on to selection of BASIC value getting used for calculation.

lets take an example, you want to calculate TAX on product base value. there is a requirement that freight value should also be considered for TAX calculation along with Product base value. You can control this writing a routing in Altrnative condtion base value.

2. Alternative calculation type:

This is basically putting on control on how to calculate the value ( using some logical formulae). Like if you are calculating Excise tax duty within a pricing procedure. the system calculates that based on percentage value. But if you have a requirement of getting the value rounded off, then u need to use this field.

I hope this has cleared ur doubts about both fields.
