OKP6 setting.

Hi Experts,

In our business scenerio we are generating some PM work orders.We have maintain info record to pick up price in field price (field name PREIS in operation --->external tab. ) .In some of the cases user have manually created purchase orders against some earlier work orders with info update tick on due to which those records got updated and can be seen in ME1L.

While generating work orders upon entering info record number in some cases rate is correctly picked up from info record but in some cases it is picked up from purchase order price.

Following points have checked.

1.order type ,cstg variant plan and cstg variant actl in control tab are same in both the cases.

2.Tried to change info record / purchase order but in one case rate is always picked up from info record and other from purchase order details.

3.Condition / access sequence is also same in both cases.

We got feedback that in OKP6 valuation variant customizing is defined to take the "price from purchase order".In OKP6 valuation variant is 007-In external processing tab sequence is i ) price fromm operation ii) net purchase order price.In drop down their are 7 options

My queries are

1.what should be sequence to have price from info record in all the cases.

2.What is meaning of those options.say price from operation,net quotation price. ( we are not entering any quotation)

3.Could not get option of info record in those options.

4.What would be implications if we change the sequence.

Thanks & Regards

    The following strategy sequences can be entered for OKP6

    1.Net Price from operation

    2. Net order price from the purchase order

    If price for Operation exists system will pick that price ,if no price in the operation the system automatically picks the price form Purchase Order

    In strategy 1 (Net order price from the purchase order), the system only accesses the price in Purchase Order if no Net Price from operation exists for the operation.

    If you change the sequence of above stratergy the copying sequence of price will get affected

    If above setting is done the system behave as it is

    • Hello,

      First Thing is that when you are using the purchasing info record. system automatically Pick the Price from ME13(purchasing info record.) If any PO Associated or Created from That ME13(purchasing info record.) After that In that PO Price is Different than ME13(purchasing info record.) price is always get updated in Order after Release & Save.But while Creation of Order Price is Updating from ME13(purchasing info record.) only.You can Change the Price to ME13(purchasing info record.) by changing PO price.
