217 Error in quantity/value determination

Hi experts,

In my pricing procedure the condition type VPRS is showing 0 value.

In analysis it is showing error: 217 Error in quantity/value determination.

Can you please tell what can be the problem? How dose VPRS work? I only know that VPRS is taken from the material master.

VPRS retrives the cost of the Material from the material master data > Accounting 1 tab to the Sales order.

Once the cost is found, then Profit margin (Net value - cost) is calculated.

VPRS does not contain any Access sequence.

With the help of its Condition category "G", it accesses the Material master > Accounting tab 1 and takes cost.

There may be two cost specified in the Material master. They are

- Moving Avarage Price

- Standard Price

Which one system will consider that depends upon the "Price control" field.

If the value is "V' in the Price control field, the system takes the "Moving Avarage Price" and if it is "S", then system takes the "Standard Price".

So, you must ensure these few control

- VPRS should NOT have any Access sequence.

- Condition category "G" must have been assigned to VPRS.

- VPRS must have been activated as "Statistical" condition in the Pricing Procedure and should not have any Account key.
