Hi

Counter is the Access number of the conditions within a step in the pricing procedure.During automatic pricing, the system takes into account the sequence specified by the counter.

For example in the Condition records you have maintained three values of freight condition types FRA1, FRB1 & FRC1.

In the pricing procedure if you have

step 10 Counter 1 - FRA1

step 10 Counter 2 - FRB1

step 10 Counter 3 - FRC1

then FRA1 will be picked up ahead of FRB1 & FRC1.

Thanks & Regards

Thanks for your Suggestion.

I have another situation. All the three freight conditions should be proposed by the system and which ever condition is first entered should become active and the other two freight conditions should be deactivated.

please Suggest

Hi

In that case then you need to use Condition Exclusion process

If several condition records are valid in the price determination process, you must define rules stipulating which conditions are selected and which are disregarded. To do this, use the condition exclusion mechanism.

The exclusion of condition records is controlled via exclusion groups. An exclusion group is a list of condition types that are compared with each other during the price determination process. The result may be the exclusion of a whole group of conditions or the exclusion of individual conditions within a group.

The result of the price determination process can thus be influenced with regard to a desired criterion (for example, the lowest price) by the exclusion of certain condition types, whereas others are taken into account in this process.

You can define a condition exclusion process that determines the most favorable price and excludes less favorable but fundamentally possible pricing results. The lowest price then overrides the condition type priorities that would have been dictated by the access sequence.

Create a condition exclusion group by entering an alphanumeric key that is max. four characters long, together with a description.

2. Assign the condition types to a condition exclusion group. A condition exclusion group can contain any number of condition types.

3. Enter the condition exclusion group in the calculation schema that you will be using for price (or cost) determination purposes.

4. In the process, note the sequence (consecutive numbers) in which the exclusion groups are to be processed.

you cando the config in SPRO->MM->Purchasing-> Conditions-> Define Price Determination Process-> Define Condition Exclusion

Thanks & Regards
