Create Condition Records by “Manage Prices – Sales” App
To use the function of create in “Manage prices – Sales” app, there are some tips need to be noticed. we prepare some example of creation to let you more familiar of this app. please check all the guide information following:
1. Field control
You can create condition records directly in the table. First specify the condition type and the key combination to determine the relevant key fields. The relevant key fields are then displayed as columns in the table dynamically.
To create condition records, we provide “field control” to dynamic limit fields which can be edited. When you choose one of the access sequences under value help of Condition Table, the field control will work, we just let the fields reference to this access sequence can be edited. It helps customer to create condition records, and no need to check which fields are the right fields for the specified key combination.
Create condition record with Condition Type (E.g. PCP0), then set a condition table for this new condition record (E.g. 4AK). To select one of access sequence of 4AK (E.g. 010), then field control work, some of the fields which not belong to this access sequence will be not editable (E.g. Service Organization).
