condition records are valid for pricing in a document
item, you can define rules that specify which condition records are
and are not included. You use condition exclusion for this
You control condition record exclusion using exclusion groups.
An exclusion group is a list of
condition types which are compared with each other
during pricing and result in the exclusion of an entire group or
individual condition types within a group.
Thus, the result of pricing can be influenced with regard to a
required criterion (for example, best price) by excluding certain
condition types while others are taken into account during
You can define a condition exclusion
which determines the best price for the customer and excludes other
less favorable results of pricing. The best price then reverses the
priority of condition types which would have been predefined by the
The procedure according to which the selection is carried out
within or between the condition exclusion groups is defined in the
pricing procedure. The following options are possible:
Selection of the most (least) favorable condition type within a
condition exclusion group
Selection of the most (least) favorable condition record of a
condition type, if more valid condition records exist (for example,
selection from different condition records of the condition type
Selection of the most (least) favorable of two condition
exclusion groups (in this case, all condition types of the two
groups are cumulated and the totals are compared)
Exclusion procedure: If a condition type in the first group
exists in the document, all condition types in the second group are
set to inactive.
The tables for condition exclusion are empty when delivered. You
therefore have to carry out the following steps if you want to use
Define condition exclusion groups
Allocate condition types to the condition exclusion groups
Enter condition exclusion groups in the pricing procedure and
specify a procedure for determining the condition types to be
1. Create a condition exclusion group
by entering an alphanumeric key with a maximum of four characters
and a description.
2. Allocate 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 pricing procedure that you use in pricing (
Goto -> Exclusion groups).
Note the sequence (sequential number)
in which the exclusion groups should be processed.
You can use two exclusion groups for
condition exclusion. In this case, you must choose the procedure
"C" which determines the best price between two exclusion
