You can use this business function to enable a performance optimized report that you can use to create price lists for products. You can make numerous settings in Customizing to change the report according to your needs. To access this report on the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Start of the navigation path Logistics Next navigation step Sales and Distribution Next navigation step Master Data Next navigation step Conditions Next navigation step List Next navigation step Creation of Price Lists End of the navigation path (transaction V_NLN).

When you activate this business function, the system removes the report found on the SAP Easy Access screen under Start of the navigation path Logistics Next navigation step Sales and Distribution Next navigation step Master Data Next navigation step Conditions Next navigation step List Next navigation step Net Price List End of the navigation path (transaction V_NL). However, you can still run this report using transaction V_NL. For more information, see Net Price List.

Integration

The accelerated condition access in the new price list functionality does not support the following:

  • Data determination in the access (for example, price books)

  • Multi-value attributes (for example, variant conditions and multiple campaigns)

    You cannot define more than one value for an attribute used in the access and have the access loop over all attributes to find all relevant records.

  • Campaign determination in the price list

  • Automatic determination of fields needed for the execution of the commodity pricing engine (CPE) or configurable parameters and formulas (CPF)

    If you use commodity management with the CPE or CPF, note that additional fields which might be needed for the execution of CPE or CPF formulas are not determined automatically by the price inquiry. You must manually add these fields to the fields used in pricing enhancements.

  • Determination of conditions records not saved yet in the database

    The system does not read condition records from main memory.

    • To compare the results of the new API with the previous API, you can run the Compare Results of Price Inquiry API report (transaction SDPIQAPICOMPARE).

    • To compare the pricing result of the new optimized pricing with the previous pricing, you can run the Compare Pricing w/ Multiple Item Access to Prc. w/ Single Item Access report (SD_PRC_MULTI_ITEM_CHECK; transaction se38).
