Quantity conversion in Sales order

There are instances when user wants to alter sale terms for a material. We can enable the user to enter quantity conversions directly in sales order by configuring relevant condition types. In V/06, go to Changes which can be made section for the condition type and choose Qty relation indicator. User will now be able to directly enter quantity conversions in sales order without maintaining the same in material master.  If sale unit is EA and user wants to specify price per KG, the same can be entered directly in sales order pricing without maintaining conversion in material master. Condition type has to be set with ‘No limitations’ or ‘Manual entry has priority’ along with ‘Qty relation’ as allowed.

I maintained EA as base unit of measure for material and Gross weight as 10 Kg. If I require to change my rate of conversion, I can do so directly in the sales order. I enter price per KG and System prompts user to enter conversions and user can specify, say 1 EA = 25 Kg.

However, there is little control over user input and this can lead to user errors. This can be used where both product pricing & packing is as per demand or sale conducted.

      Dear Karuna

      one doubt on this plz let me know

      User will now be able to directly enter quantity conversions in sales order without maintaining the same in material master.

      Here in c. type where we can maintain EA or BAG or Cartans bz it is possible in MMR ONLY

      And while creating sales order when ever we want to enter 2 EA and Cartons we have to use additional factor in mmr  but you are telling only in c.type we can control .. how it is possible

      What my doubt is if not maintaine EA ,CARTONS then where we maintain for material

      plzlet me know

      Hi Venu,

      Here your units of measure are specified in MMR, however rate of conversion can be changed in sales order.

      Hi Venu,

      Use it for prices, & discount conditions and that too only if user requirement is such. One industry where this can be used is retail, and also industrial products like steel where output material dimensions are not exact.

      Hi Karuna Ravi,

      Kindly clear my doubt.

      We want to use a condition for freight which is a proportionate on Gross value but the factor has many decimals but default decimal allowed is only 3.

      E.G Gross value 1000000 the factor for freight is 0.00851 so the freight value should be 8510 but the value flows is 9000. How to deal with this.

      Thanks and Regards,

      Hi Sethuraman,

      What are the units being used?  Is your freight 8.51 per Kg?

      Accordingly, you can specify condiiton values.

      Thanks,

      Hi Karuna,

      Thanks.

      The unit is % on Gross sales value so we cannot specify it correctly to last decimal. Example factor is 0.0000851 so even if we use as % it comes to 0.00851% but we could enter only 0.008% bcoz it allows only 3 decimals.

      Kindly suggest.

      Thanks,

      Hi Sethuraman,

      If your % rate is expected to be that low, then it is better to use fixed amount or gross weight as calculation type of your freight condition instead of percentage. In such cases we can use qty conversions.

      However in case of % of sales value cannot be changed to anything else. The main issue in your case is rounding; so please check SAP notes on rounding. They might be of help.
