    dear, as far as i know :

    the VPRS (cost) is used to compare the determined prices with the costs and to determine contribution margin accounting.

    to do this, you can use the condition type VPRS as the cost price, used as a statistical value in the pricing determination procedure. the condition type VPRS accesses the valuation segment in the material master and from here, determines the standard or average price.

    • Hello Valamforth,

      condition VPRS normally has not any effect on price calculation of billing document, unless you build up your own pricing procedure, where the value of VPRS will be used as base value for real no-statistical conditions.

      But this never happens in SAP delivered pricing procedures.

      It is determined according to the rules present in SAP note [372772|], and it represents the the cost of the material you are selling.

      When the billing document is released to accounting, VPRS will be taken over by CO-PA.

      So I would suggest to discuss with the CO experts if you can remove it.

      If you don't want VPRS, you can simply set the flag 'Determine cost' Off in transaction VOV7.

      This flag is checked in pricing requirement routine 4. This routine is assigned to VPRS in SAP delivered pricing procedures.

      Best regards,
