Amount in Release Order for Value Contract

Dear experts,

I am digging on the behaviour of SAP SD Value Contract to see if it can fulfil a customer requirement.

Following steps recommended in SAP documentation, I have created a Value Master Contract and a Value Contract. Also, I have set up all master data (customer and material) and pricing elements to make it working (pricing procedure, item category, pricing conditions, etc.).

So, for example, I have created a Value Contract (VC) with only one item target value of 50.000 EUR and material '562'. Going to Item -> Conditions, I see my Condition Type 'ZAPI' with amount 2.000 EUR per 1 PC. Here, Net is equal to 0.

Then, I create a Release Order (RO) with reference to a contract which is the previous VC. I select the only item available, introduce quantity 1 and click on "Copy". An item is created inside my new RO. Material is OK (562), however 'Order Quantity' field is greyed out and I cannot introduced any quantity. In Item -> Conditions, I see my Condition Type correctly defined but Net is equal to 0 again.

Therefore, when I save the RO, 0 value is released against my Value Contract.

Would you know what could be happening? Why no value is released against my Value Contract?

For additional information, I have tried this with and without 'Assortment module' linked to my Value Contract. Situation is the same.

Also, I know 'Order Quantity' field is greyed out in my Release Order because the Item Category does not allow Schedule Lines. This was done on purpose because Schedule lines cannot be allowed when Completion Rule = 'E' (Item is completed after full target value is referenced) in Item Category customizing. Which, in turns, needs to be done by using the option Contract Release Ctrl = 'B' (Error message if target value is exceeded), also in Item Category customizing, if I want to show an error when the Value Contract amount is going to be exceeded.

Hope you can provide any clue.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Carmelo Perez

Hello,

Requirement is to bill a customer when a certain amount of money (limit) has been reached (ex: 50.000 EUR).

Basically, customer will be consuming goods in a regular basis and cost of this consumption will flow through SAP SD. The idea is to create Sales documents for each customer consumption (Release Orders in my case) and, when the limit is reached (50.000 EUR), billing will be carried out and an invoice created.

Independently of the limit, customers will be invoiced at the end of the month too.

So, the different scenarios are:

- Customers that could have been billed in the middle of the month (Value Contract billing and invoice created because limit amount was reached) and whose remaining consumption will be billed at the end of the month (Value Contract billing and invoice created even though limit amount has NOT been reached).

- Customers that never reached the limit and whose total consumption will be billed at the end of the month (Value Contract billing and invoice created even though limit amount has NOT been reached).

I have doubts with the fact of billing and invoicing a Value Contract when its total amount to release has been still not reached. However, this is another topic and the first question I would need to clarify is in my previous post.

Hope this helps to have better visibility on what I want to achieve.

Regards,

Carmelo Pérez.
