Two info-records for same material

Hello,

Can we set-up two different info-records for the same material from a vendor? For exaple, Material A will have two different prices based on some characteristics. Because of heavy customization, we cannot create a new material to differentiate.

For the cheaper category of Material A, we want to create PO with correct lower price at the beginning, instead of maintaining price manually after PO is created. Thus having more systemic controls.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Meet

    Hello Meet !

    No, you can't have that in the standard system, they even have a note to treat that (so, it's considered an issue)

    836917 - Duplicate or multiple info records

    Sorry not being able to give you a positive answer =/

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    Instead of differentiation of info record you may consider to use split valuation for different characteristics of material.

    Hi,

    You can plan for two info records in the below way .Info record is pur org related too apart from plant.Try with two diff pur org level info records.while creating the PO depending upon the pur org used ... info record will provode the appropriate price.

    Have you with split valuation? it is always advicible to have split valuation if the material is needed to be with diff price.and accordigly the info updation can be taken.

    Regards,

      In our business, PO is automatically created in the background with a customized transaction. So, choosing a different purch org is not an option here.

      Can you please tell more about Split Valuation in detail?

      About Pricing Conditions, why would someone not prefer it over Split Valuation. What are pros and cons of each?

      Thanks.

    Instead of trying to create two info records, try using

    1. Pricing conditions.

    2. Rebate arrangement or

    3. MWBQ transaction, (If you are using active ingredient management.)

      Option of setting pricing conditions looks interesting.

      I assume that I will have to maintain scale to define the different prices for different values.

      1. Currently the Scale Basis is set with "Quantity". But I want to change it to "Value", because the characteristic that defines a different purchase price is not quantity but a certain attribute. How do I change the Scale Basis? I cannot se an option in ME12. It's greyed out there.

      2. How do I configure so that while creating PO, Net Value uses the scale maintained in conditions?

      Detailed information about the steps will be highly appreciated.

      Thanks.
