            1. Complete selection screen
            2. You reach a selection screen, in which you can enter concrete selection criteria, for example, the number of customers or materials.

              You have the option of executing the selection screen without displaying it, possibly even with a pre-assigned selection variant (see Unit Customer-specific Enhancements)
            3. Condition maintenance in condition overview screen
            4. You must differentiate in the maintenance between the overview screen and the fast entry screen. You reach the overview screen described below first. It can be used to maintain conditions for Changing conditions and Creating with reference (also for displaying, which will no longer be taken into consideration in the condition maintenance description) You must decide on one of the pre-assigned condition tables in the overview screen for Creating conditions. Click on the icon for creating next to the short description for the condition table fields (highlighted). You then reach the fast entry screen, which will also be described.

              Note that when creating with reference, new records are always created. Therefore the entrant and the date of entry is continuously reset. If you have selected more condition records than those you wanted to create, you can delete these condition records from the selection. However if you are in ‘Change’ and you delete from the list, this means that the record is completely deleted.

               

              After carrying out the selection you can use the transaction VK32 (Change Condition) to reach the conditions overview screen. This contains a list of the condition records to be maintained. In the list header a maximum of three fields are displayed, which are the same for all records, for example, sales organization. The list shows a group of condition records for every condition table. The heading for each group of conditions is the same as the heading for the field descriptions of the condition tables and is highlighted.

              All of the price maintenance options are available. New developments in condition maintenance:

              • Condition types and condition table maintenance in a screen This means you can change the validity period for different condition types or tables together
              • Context sensitive right mouse button, equivalent to selecting icons
              • Selection of fields for table maintenance with choice of one of the following screen variants:

              All fields

              Value limits for pricing

              Validity period

              Condition rate

              Planned data

              Tax data

              Control data

              Management data

              Term of payment

               You can define your own screen variants. The next unit Customer-specific Enhancements describes how to maintain new screen variants.
              • Price simulation (see below for description)
              • Tab pages with the following detail screens:

              Validity Periods

              Scales

              Condition texts

              Key

              Pricing simulation

              You can use the pricing simulation to estimate the results of a price change. You can choose several conditions and change them. Then before you save the changes, you can simulate pricing, which then displays the effects of the changes. A billing document is simulated for a customer and a material. As a result you receive a comparison of the old and new net value. You can also compare the old profit margin (net price minus cost price) with the new profit margin.

              1. Initial creation of conditions in the fast entry screen
              2. If you want to create conditions, choose the creation icons in the overview screen, relating to a condition table. You now reach the fast entry screen.

                The fast entry screen enables the initial creation of conditions. This can still only be carried out for one condition table. If however, condition types have the same condition table, you can maintain condition records for different condition types.
