Purpose 

This page contains basic information related to conditions in Purchasing Info Record (PIR) documents.

Overview 

This page gives a technical background and useful basic information about condition handling, transactions and reports used in PIRs.

Condition related tables and how they are connected

The PIR related condition records are stored in two tables:

A018 - Material Info Record

A017 - Material Info Record (Plant-Specific)


Less frequently used are following tables:

A025 - Info Record for Non-Stock Item (Plant-Specific)

A028 - Info Record for Non-Stock Item

A066 - Info record per order unit

A067 - Plant Info Record per Order Unit


The condition values are stored in the tables KONH, KONP and KONM. The condition record entries are connected with the condition value entries over the KNUMH (Number of the Condition Record) field key.

You can search the tables A017 and A018 for supplier, material, purch org and plant. After that, You can search the condition value tables with the KNUMH value.


Scale prices in Info Records

The KONM table contains the scale price values. You can display and change the scale prices in ME13/ME12 transactions by selecting a condition record and pressing the Scales button:


Updating Info Record conditions

The Purchasing Info Record conditions can be updated in ME12 transaction directly.

However, there are other options as well. The transactions MEK2, MEK3 and MEK32 are also suitable to update the condition values. Also, it is possible to post IDOC (for example using the COND_A idoc type).

Many customers use custom reports or transactions to update the condition records directly.

Important:  the field EINE-NETPR is only updated if the condition is changed in ME12 transaction.


To update the EINE tables with the price value and validity information, it is necessary to run the report RM06INP0.

More information can be found in the following knowledge sources:

KBA  2418804 - Purchase info record price not updated for the current period in table EINE

KBA  2400237 - Different effective price in ME11/ME12 and in RM06INP0

It is recommended to schedule a job to run this report on regular basis.
