A condition type is a representation in the system of some aspect of your daily pricing activities. For example, you can define a different condition type for each kind of price, discount or surcharge that occurs in your business transactions.

Example of a Condition Type

You define the condition type for a special material discount. You specify that the system calculates the discount as an amount (for example, a discount of USD 1 per sales unit). Alternatively, you can specify that the system calculates the discount as a percentage (for example: a 2% discount for orders over 1,000 units). If you want to use both possibilities, you must define two separate condition types. The following figure illustrates how condition types can be used during pricing in a sales document.You determine the calculation type for a condition type in Customizing. This determines how the system calculates prices, discounts and surcharges for a condition. When setting up condition records, you can enter a different calculation type than the one in Customizing. At present all available calculation types are permitted. The field ‘Calculation type’ can however not be accessed if this field is left empty. After the data release has been printed, if the field has not been completed manually, the proposal is automatically taken from Customizing. After this it is no longer possible to make manual changes.

If you use different calculation types for what are otherwise the same conditions (for example, percentage, as a fixed amount or quantity-dependent), you do not have to define different condition types in Customizing. You can set a different calculation type when maintaining the individual condition records.

Condition Types in the Standard R/3 System

The standard system includes, among many others, the following predefined condition types:

Condition type





Material discount


Customer-specific material discount


Customer discount


Price group discount


Freight surcharge (by item)


State tax


County tax


City tax

Creating and Maintaining Condition Types

You can change and maintain condition types provided in the standard version of the SAP R/3 System or you can create new condition types to suit the needs of your own organization. You create and maintain condition types in Customizing.

To reach the condition type screen from the initial Customizing screen for Sales and Distribution:

Basic Functions ® Pricing ® Pricing Control ® Define condition types.

A dialog-box appears, listing the transaction options. Select the corresponding transaction for defining the condition types.

In the Conditions: Condition Types view, you can change existing condition types or create new ones.

Condition Exclusion

The system can exclude conditions so that they are not taken into account during pricing in sales documents.

Material 4711 costs 150 USD. Some customers receive a discount of 10 USD per 100 pieces.

However, a specific customer can buy the material for 100 USD. Since this is a particularly good price, the customer should not also have a discount of 10 USD per 100 pieces. Therefore, this discount is to be excluded from pricing.

To do this, you must follow two steps:

You must set a condition exclusion indicator for the price. You can do this in two ways: If you want to set the condition exclusion indicator a follows

then you specify it

for all condition records of a condition type (e.g. with condition type PR00)

when defining a condition type in SD Customizing

for an individual condition record (e.g. only for material 4711)

in the detail screen of a condition record (in the Condition exclusion field)

You must set a condition for the discount in the pricing procedure in Customizing for sales. If this condition is set, the discount is not valid if the condition exclusion indicator is set. Condition 2 is available in the standard R/3 System.

The condition exclusion indicator is not valid for condition supplements.

This means that if a condition record contains condition supplements they will be taken into account during pricing.
