How to deactivate a condition type for a few specific materials (which are linked with a chapter ID)

Dear all,

Kindly help me out for the below requirement.

We have few materials which are linked with some chapter IDs. And we know that we use chapter IDs to shows how much excise duty is levied on each material. But there is one particular chapter ID, and if any material linked to this chapter ID is processed for sales, it should be exempted from tax (condition type ABCD).

Is there any way to solve it from condition table level?
If yes, below is the key combination for CType ABCD, kindly guide from here.

I hope someone would definitely share valuable inputs.

    Not sure whether you are aware of that if you dont maintain condition record for those materials, then automatically, in sale order, ABCD will not appear. Why were you checking ABCD condition type in material master?? If you are not familiar with basic SD configurations, please take the help of someone senior in your team and achieve the desired result.

    • I understand that if material was defined at key combination level, I would have not maintained the records in VK11.
      But if you look at my first comment in this question, last three key combinations are at region/plant/country level. So as per these key combinations, only for few materials, how do we deactivate the condition type?

    Why do you want to solve it on condition table level? Why just marking these materials as not liable for tax is not enough for you?

    Additionally, what does this Chapter ID refer to in SAP?

    While you got the right direction already, I dont understand why you link Chapter ID to tax. Chapter ID should always be linked to excise duty. What the Business process is ?

    • Let me put my issue in a simple words:

      I have few materials, and for them I want one particular condition type (ABCD) to be disabled in sales order. And I don't see ABCD in material master, otherwise I would have directly set it option zero (not liable).
      I guess if I can group these materials, this might help me to disable ABCD, but not I am sure how to do it. Kindly help me out.

    Try to create new access with the material also with your other desired fields.

    Just don't create condition records which was already suggested by Mr Lakshmipathi for this combination..

    While checking your accesses-two queries

    1.Why country came after your plant in your access?

    2.Why plant region & plant in a single access?

    • Hi Phanikumar,

      Even I have no clue, it was already configured this way.
      I would only create a new key combination (S.Org/Plant/Region/Country/Material group), and then assign a routine here.
      On your suggestion to create new access, if I create new access sequence, the present access sequence needs to be changed, but I want this new key combination (new condition table) in the same access sequence. When this new key combination meets the requirement, programmatically (using routine) condition type ABCD would be deactivated.

    No need to go for routine--Please dont conclude yourself on this requirement with development techniques.

    Dont change the access sequence-just add the required combination into your access sequence.

    Please google for pricing procedure configurations & Condition technique concept for better clarity as suggested earlier.
