How to apply condition record to a actual material with a pricing reference material?
Need an information. I believe, if there is a pricing reference material listed in material master data, then the condition record should necessarily be referring to pricing reference material.
I have come across a scenario, even though the sales order line item "material" has a pricing reference material for it against which usually condition record would be maintained, I need to maintain the record for the actual material despite of the presence of pricing reference material.
Now, as there is a reason why pricing reference material given in master data, I would like to know is it possible to maintain the condition record for the line item material without removing reference material from master data.
If possible, how to achieve this possibility.
yes this is possible, by default KOMP - PMATN(Pricing material reference) system takes this doc.field while you assign the tables to the access sequence, however you can still change this field catalog at the access sequence level, say for example if your table A004 was assigned to PR00 pricing sequence, get onto the table 4, goto field view, select the line, KOMP- PMATN & goto field catalog & search for MATNR field, which has description as material number, on selecting this the default doc. field changes to MATNR from PMATN.
but doing this at the access sequence level causes non-usage of the existing condition records & hence use this for new condition table / access sequence mapping, also have this assignment normally made at a Z- access sequence & not to a standard one.
The material master on having the pricing reference material normally takes the priority in pricing a material because of PMATN mapping, hence try to have blank at the material master level when you dont want any access specific to pricing reference material or populate the same material code to pricing reference material such that the actual material & the pricing reference material are the same.
