Fixed amount condition changes depending on GR qty

Dear Experts,

Fixed amout condition is added in the Item - condition tab. Fixed value = $50.

Created PO for 100 qty with price per EA = 10. So, we expect the Invoice value to be 1000+50 = $1050.

But we did GR for 200 Qty. Since the condition type is fixed amount, we expected the delivery cost to be still $50 and total value to be 200 X10+50 = $2050

But, SAP calculations were different from what we expected. The fixed amout was changed as per the GR qty. and the PO total becomes $2100 (Fixed amount changed to 100 since GR qty = 2000)

Why the fixed amount doesnot remain fixed? How come the fixed amount increase depending on GR quantity?

Please suggest if there is any settings?

My confition type (ZFB3 has calc. type = B fixed).

Regards,

Shashidhar

    SAP does not know fix amounts in our sense, a fix amount is only fix if the GR quantity is equal to the PO quantitiy.

    • we have not implemented any programmed solution, we are just doing unplanned delivery costs.

      Business had a strong request during the project, I found this note, and even had a consultant from SAP directly on side regarding this issue, but we did not find a satisfying solution.

      And the more you think about this issue and talk with the users about the possible variations that can happen, which have to be covered in a program, the more you will find out that it is not possible to make this happen.

      Just think about the situation that the receiver posts a goods receipt in single portions because of different batches.

      (always keep in mind, that the receivers often are just warehouse workers, not having the advanced SAP skills of a consultant. So they might do the work different from your expectations). How shall SAP act, shall the fix amount go to each partial receipt? What shall happen if he entered a wrong quantity? you know that you can cancel the whole material document, but it is as well possible to just post the differnce quantity with 102 movement. How shall this be done with fix conditions.

      You may find a solution that works specially for your company,

      but a general way is hard to find.

    Hi,

    Have that condition type (ZFB3 ) as header condition by selecting Header Condition in "Change which can be made" segment in t.code: M/06 which you want to calculate only Rs.50/-
