Condition exclusion for groups of conditions

If several 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 purpose.

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 pricing.

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 access sequence.

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:

The tables for condition exclusion are empty when delivered. You therefore have to carry out the following steps if you want to use condition exclusion:


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 groups.
