Create Condition Records with Release Status

As shown during the configuration of a Condition Table, and as mentioned earlier in this book, Condition Records since SAP R/3 release 4.6A can be created with a Release Status. This status allows pricing Condition Records to be created without applying on a Sales or Billing Document. They can be used to establish an approval process for any price changes or to simulate "what if" scenarios.

So far I showed you how to get information about a specific Condition Type that applied on a Sales Order. Yet another tool to gather even more information on how and why pricing conditions applied (or didn't apply) is the "Analysis" tool. The Pricing Analysis can only be accessed from the "Item Conditions" screen, since the automatic pricing via the Condition Technique only occurs for line item pricing.
