 Pricing: Agreed Conversion Factors


This feature enables you to specify agreed conversion factors in a business document. You use this function if you want to use in a condition a conversion factor for a unit-of-measure pair and the conversion factor deviates from the one in the material master.

You can specify one agreed conversion factor per unit-of-measure pair and assign one of the following applicable areas:

  • Condition

  • Current Item

  • All Items

During pricing, the system searches in the above order for agreed conversion factors.

  • You can enter the agreed conversion factor in a business document in the Pricing Elements: Table 2 pricing view in the Agreed Conversion Factors area. In addition, in the Agreed Conversion Factors area, you can control for which area the entered agreed conversion factors are applied by selecting a value in the Applicable For column.

  • In the Pricing Elements area, you can see in the ConvFactors (Agreed Conversion Factors Are Allowed) column for a condition if the system can apply an agreed conversion factor. In the FactorAppl (Agreed Conversion Factor Applied) column, you can see if it has been applied.

  • The system applies the agreed conversion factor to a condition in the business document if the following prerequisites are fulfilled. Otherwise it uses the conversion factor from the material master:

    • You have selected the new Conv. Factors (Agreed Conv. Factors Allowed) checkbox in Customizing for condition types.

    • The units of measure of the agreed conversion factor are the same as the unit of measure of the condition and one of the following values:

      • The base unit of measure

      • The unit of measure of the referenced adjusted quantity

      Note Note

      To fulfill the prerequisites above, the order of the values for the agreed conversion factor is not relevant.

      End of the note.

The system automatically copies the entered values of the agreed conversion factors into the subsequent documents, similar to the copying of manually changed pricing elements.

You can use the agreed conversion factor function in the following business documents:

  • SD documents

    • Inquiry

    • Quotation

    • Sales contract

    • Sales order

    • Invoice

    • Provisional / Differential Invoice

    • Final Invoice

  • MM documents:

    • Purchase order

    • Invoice

  • GTM documents:

    • Trading contract

    • Precontract

      Note Note

      You cannot use this function together with expense management or in processes for agency businesses.

      End of the note.
