Step:

 Number that determines the sequence of the conditions with in a procedure.


 It indicates the position of the condition type in pricing procedure.

Counter:

 System uses the counter to count the steps and also it can be used to count mini steps
of same condition types. So that number of steps can be reduced in the pricing
procedure and hence enhancing the system performance.
 Access number of the conditions with in a step in the pricing procedure.
 During automatic pricing, the system takes into account the sequence specified by the
counter.

Condition Type:

 It represents pricing element in pricing procedure as a base price, discount, freight and
tax.
 The condition type is used for different functions. In pricing, for example, the
condition type lets you differentiate between different kinds of discount; in output
determination, between different output types such as order confirmation or delivery
note; in batch determination, between different strategy types.

Description:

 System copies description of condition type from its description.

From and To:

 This can be used as a base to the condition type for calculating further value.
 The range between the steps from and to can be used to specify the range between
same condition types. So that depending upon the condition type, the system deducts
or adds the total value of those condition types from specific common source.

Manual:

 This indicator specifies whether the specific condition type can be determined
manually during purchase order processing.
 If we check the box then the entry is going to be manual, if we uncheck it, it is going
to be automatic.
 For Base Price and Taxes, the entry should be automatic.
 For Discounts and Freights, The entry should be manual.
 If we check the box, in ME21N when we go to conditions at the header/item level, the
condition type will not be listed. If we require we will have to manually enter it.
 If we uncheck the box, in ME21N when we go to conditions at the header/item level,
the condition type will be listed.

Required:
 This indicator specifies that particular condition type is mandatory in the pricing
procedure.
 If we check the box, in ME21N at the header/item level in the conditions tab, if we
delete the value in the condition type and try to save the document then system will
not allow us to do it and throws an error.
 If we uncheck the box, then in ME21N at the header/item level in the conditions tab,
if we delete the value in the condition type and try to save the document then system
will allow us to save it, without giving any error.
 This check box should be checked in condition types which are compulsorily required
in pricing procedure. Ex.: MWST.
 If the condition type is checked with mandatory option, then value should be
maintained for that condition type, otherwise the system will not allow the user to
process the document.

Statistical:

 This indicator if it is activated will not allow the value of the condition type to be
taken into net Price calculation.
 It is used only for information purposes only.
 This indicator causes a surcharge or discount to be set in the document statistically
(that is, without altering the Net Price, however, the effective price will still be
affected. See the last point how the calculation takes place for the Net Price and the
Effective Price).
 As a rule all delivery costs must be checked as statistical.
 In MM even if a condition is statistical, the value can still be loaded on the stock
based on your configurations of the condition type. For example if Accruals indicator
is checked for the condition type, the stock will be loaded with the condition value
even if it is statistical in the pricing procedure and posting will be made to the
provision account.
 Net Price= Basis price [-Rebates/+Surcharges]
– includes non-statistical conditions only
 Effective Price= Net price [+-]Delivery cost
– contains statistical conditions and non-statistical conditions

Print:

 The value of this field specifies whether line item can be printed or not in the
purchasing document and at what level or at what condition it is to be printed.

Subtotal:

 The value of this field determines where the values of subtotals to be captured i.e. in
which table and which field.
 Controls whether and in which fields condition amounts or subtotals (for example, a
discount or the cost of a material) are stored.
 If the same fields are used to store different condition amounts, the system totals the
individual amounts.
 These condition amounts or subtotals are used as a starting point for further
calculations. You may, for example, want a subtotal of all the discounts included in
the pricing of a purchase order.
Requirement:

 It is a routine that is written by an ABAP consultant according to the business


requirement.
 By defining Requirement in condition technique we can restrict the access of
condition type.

CalTyp- Condition formula calculation rule:

 It is again a Routine that is written by ABAP Consultant.


 It is an alternative formula for the condition type that can be used instead of standard
formulas.
 If new routines are to be defined we follow the procedure given below.
 Go to T.Code: VOFM. – Maintain Requirements & Formulas

 Click on the “Formulas” and then on the “Condition Values”.
 We have a list of routines, we can ask ABAP consultant to create new routines based
on the client requests.
 And we assign the application type.

BasType – Condition formula for basis

 Formula for determining the condition basis as an alternative to the standard.


 It is again a Routine that is written by ABAP Consultant.
 It is used as a basis to calculate value of the condition type instead of using it from the
“FROM” column.
 Ex.: Freight –FRA1.
 Freight is calculated based on weight, volume etc. and not on the base price. In
pricing there is no entry of weight from which the value can be referred like we do for
discounts using base price. We have to get the value from the Material master.
 In this column we can mention the value as 12 – Gross Weight or 13 – Net Weight.
 During pricing, the system will consider the value that is mentioned in this column
and determine the freight based on this value.
 Suppose we have Net weight: 100 kgs and Gross Weight: 150 kgs. And if we mention
13 in this column then the Freight condition KF00 will be calculated using the weight
as 100 kgs.

AccKey:

 Key that identifies different types of G/L account.


 The account key enables the system to post amounts to certain types of revenue
account. For example, the system can post freight charges (generated by the freight
pricing condition) to the relevant freight revenue account.
 This is used if Purchase Account Management (PAM) is active for the company code;
else, this has no use in MM Pricing Procedure.

Accruals:

 Key which identifies various types of G/L accounts for accruals or provisions.
 With the aid of the account key, the system can post amounts to certain types of
accruals accounts. For example, rebate accruals which are calculated from pricing
conditions can be posted to the corresponding account for rebate accruals.
 If certain delivery costs are required to be taken to a different provision account, you
can define your own accruals key and assign the provision account to this accruals
key in OBYC
