    Hi, Thanks for the steps. I have followed all the steps very carefully. However, when all the steps are performed, i saw the header data wherein i did not see any price listed for 'BLUE' color bike or 'RED' color bike. The path i used to display the sales order is, VA03->inserted Sales Order number ->Goto->Header->Conditions.

    I am looking for a scenario, where the price of the bike would change based on the color of the bike. I would also like to add some more characteristics such as engine size, number of gears etc and see the price being changed all these characteristics. Thanks in advance for answers.
