how Can I apply a automatic discount based on just item category

Dear Experts,


how Can I apply a automatic discount based on just item category ? So for example if any material that has TAN item category , I want to apply 25% discount (regardless what the material is).

I have setup a discount condition type, a condition table (sales org/ D channel / div / Item cat) , did't work. Can some one throw in some ideas ?

Thanks.

    Some of the members have suggested to go for "customization". This requirement can be met by standard SAP functionality, no need for routine etc. etc.

    Create a condition type, with the correct configuration (e.g. Cal type = A, percentage etc.)

    Create a condition table with field PSTYV (item category)

    Put this condition table in the access sequence. (according to the business requirement, only one condition table can be put in the access sequence)

    Access sequence is to be assigned to the condition type.

    The condition type has to be put in the pricing procedure

    The pricing procedure is to be assigned to the document via OVKK

    Create a condition record.

    Test by creating a sales order.

    • I wanted to configure this requirement in IDES system. But I could not find PSTYV (item category) in

      Field catalogue path:

      IMG (or spro) > Sales and Distribution > Basic Functions > Pricing > Pricing Control > Define Condition Tables

      Conditions: Allowed fields

      Ofcourse a field can be added to the field catalogue. No problem!

      In my client system, where I had checked, PSTYV was present.

      Please check and confirm if in the pricing field catalogue field PSTYV is present.

      FYI: AUART (sales document type) is present.

    I am surprised to see you have posted this query by copy pasting from here

    http://sap.ittoolbox.com/groups/technical-functional/sap-log-sd/automatic-discount-based-on-item-category-2540509

    In the past, you have already been warned not to do this practice but it is regret to note despite cautions from Forum Moderators, you keep on continuing this practice.

    This is the final warning and please stop this practice IMMEDIATELY, failing which, I will recommend your user id for deletion.

      Dear Venu

      Atleast make an effort to check the scenario before posting the issue. Have you really tried it out? I think everyone in this forum are answering your queries during their busy schedules. So atleast respect the effort they are putting. Please do a round of testing and only post the issues if you are really in need of help.

      All the best

      Regards

    I think you will have to go for a routine if it is not working. I am not sure why your condition type did not work at first place.

    regards

    let me approach this in two methods for discount .

    method 1) ( scale basis discount) ex for 100 pcs 10% discount or .. 100kg 1% discount ....

    goto v/06 then scroll down .. select the condition type that u are using then click detail button, scroll down and there u can see SCALES section.. in that u can select scale basis .. here u can select either quantity basis , weight basis , volume basis depending on type of material ...or u can go for the scale formula (may require abap rountines for special requirements like writing formula ). and save and assign this in the pricing procedure ..

    method 2 ) normal discount

    for discounts condition type to select is KA00. now go to the item level (VA02 to change the existing sales order ) in the item category and double click the item .. then go to conditions tab and enter the new condition type KA00 and then enter the % of discount you want to give in the amount field and then press enter and then save ...

    this way u can attain discount at the item level for ea

    ch item .. if there are hundreds of items then its better u assign KA00 condition type in the pricing procedure .to the selected customers ... i mean maintain in the info record VK11.. customer and material and the pricing procedure ... that should solve your problem i guess ...

    Regards

    Ramesh
