Hi,

**AltCty - Condition formula for alternative calculation type:**

- 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.

- For example, let us take the Profit Margin which can be both + / - , so here this routine will help us in generating the value which can be either + or -. Profit margin is not a condition type so it cannot be classified as +ve or -ve in the V/06.

- Ex.: 950 0 Profit Margin 11.

- So we assign 11 - Profit Margin.

- If new routines are to be defined we follow the procedure given below.

- Go to T.Code: VOFM. - Maintain Requirements & Formulas

o Click on the "Formulas" and then on the "Condition Values".

o We have a list of routines, we can ask ABAP consultant to create new routines based on the client requests.

o And we assign the application type.

**AltCBV - Alternative formula for condition base value:**

- 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 - KF00.

- 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.

**I am giving example of AltCTy "12"**

For e.g. if you assign subtotal "D" (XWORKD) to one condition and "E" (XWORKE) to another and create a subtotal line in pricing and assign AltCty as 12 to this line then system will give value for this line as XWORKD - XWORKE.

For e.g.

In Calculation Schema;

ZCT1 = 10000 (Subtotal "D" - XWORKD)

ZCT2 = 9000 (Subtotal "E" - XWORKE)

Subtotal = 1000 (AltCty - 12)

You can check existing routines in VOFM and also create new.

Hi

ALTCTY - the routine here is used for Chnaging the Formula or derivation rule for a Condition type, this routine is used for Calculating based on aformual such as Scale basis or Condition basis

ALTCBV - the rouitine here is used to change the Conditoon Base value in certain Conditions. If in the Pricing Schema the step has been defined to Calculate based on the Gross Price. But if you want to Calculate the Same Conditon type Differently apart from the Standard in case of Adifferent Scenario where you need to take the Net Price. The routine here Can change the Condition Base Value.

Thanks & Regards

Dear,

This I think this is what you are looking for:

**The column AltCty (alternative calculation type)**

specifies that the system is to use the formula

represented in this column as an alternative in finding the value of the condition type, rather than by

using the standard condition technique. This can be used to calculate complex tax scenarios.

**The AltCBV (alternative condition base value)**

is a formula assigned to a condition type in order

to promote an alternative base value for the calculation of a value. For example, one can specify a

formula that uses a subtotal, such as 4, from the Subtotal field, modify it slightly, such as dividing it

by 2, and then using the resultant value as a base value for the condition type.

Regards,

Syed Hussain.
