Document type pricing procedure

Dear Gurus,

I came to know that document pricing procedure is determined from the sales document type.

What is the purpose of this pricing procedure based on sales document types like inquiry, quotation?

what is "pricing procedure"  in pricing procedure determination apart form customer pricing procedure and document pricing procedure (as we can see 3 pricing procedures in pricing procedure determination).

what is the purpose of "condition type" in pricing procedure determination as pricing procedure itself contains many condition types. Is this Ctype different from those C types in procedures?

I came to know access sequence is a search strategy for finding condition records for a condition type.

But condition record contains many price elements(tax,discount,surcharge,freight) and condition type is 1 price element calculation procedure like for cess tax, surcharge....

Confusing..please explain..I am new to SD

Regards,

Sridhar.

    Hi Sridhar,

    even if it is quotation or an inquiry by having Doc pricing procude as standard, the full price of items along with the taxes would be picked from the condition records present. It helps the customer to know what would finally be the cost to him. That is the reason why we have the option to keep doc pricing procedure as standard even for Inquiry as well as for Quotation.

    The primary job of a pricing procedure is to define a group of condition types in a particular sequence. The pricing procedure also determines:

    • Which sub-totals appear during pricing 
    • To what extent pricing can be processed manually 
    • Which method the system uses to calculate percentage discounts and surcharges 
    • Which requirements for a particular condition type must be fulfilled before the system takes the condition into account

    An access sequence is a search strategy that the system uses to find valid data for a particular condition type. It determines the sequence in which the system searches for data. The access sequence consists of one or more accesses. The sequence of the accesses establishes which condition records have priority over others. The accesses tell the system where to look first, second, and so on, until it finds a valid condition record. You specify an access sequence for each condition type for which you create condition records.

    Hi sridhar,

    Be clear about the Business process which done manually and how its get automated using sap .

    Document pricing procedure is one of the controlling tool from sales document type to determine your correct pricing procedure.

    Both inquiry and quotation are presales phase, which have a reference to create a order with validity ,since in quotation you have to quote a material price  so that pricing required here.

    Pricing procedure is systematic way and sequential order to determine pricing automatically once configured, which contains  16 feilds sorted in row each fields has different functionality  such a way that pricing what  you determine will passed to accounting, as a consultant you must know each individual feilds and their functions according to condtion type reqirements  which you listed.

    SAP always recommend use as much data as master data to avoid human errors,here we determine the process using condition techniques,

    the purpose of conditon type how do you variate whether it is a standard price or taxes, to know the similarity b/w list  of condition types in pricing procedure, with diffrent condition type controls.

    Condtion record is nothing but were you determine the material price,dicounts,taxes,for conditon types,it is determined from the key combination from condition table for more specific.
