Set Material Master Price of a material as sales price

The first method – Do not set the pricing condition VPRS as a statistical condition type. Simply remove PR00 and it will work fine if you always use VPRS as your pricing base inside the pricing procedure. VPRS will read both prices based on the price control in the material master. 

Price control S for standard price. 
Price control V for moving average price.   

However, if you are using one pricing procedure where for some items you price using VPRS and some others using PR00, then you should use requirement routines to enable the correct price condition type at the right time. 

The second method involves more work as you need to write a formula ( VOFM) to get that information. 

This is how it goes :- 

1. Set VPRS to be the first step in the pricing procedure and to be subtotal B (as standard). 

2. Set PR00 with alt. calc. type formula, which sets the value of PR00 to be equal to the subtotal B. 
    The routine (created with transaction VOFM) is: 


The pricing procedure than looks like that: 

Step 1 VPRS statistical, subtotal B, reqt 4 
Step 2 PR00 Altcty 600

Difference between Condition Type Ek01 ( Actual Cost) and EK02 Calculated Cost

These are the condition type that will display the results of the unit costing for certain  type of sales document. 

EK01 : 
If you use this condition type, the result of unit costing is issued to the first position on the conditions screen for the item. The value can be used as a basis for price determination. 

If you use this condition type, the result of unit costing is simply a statistical value which you can compare with the price. 

Please note the following points  :

1) The condition type must have condition category ‘Q’ (costing). 

2) The condition type must agree with the condition type defined for unit costing in the pricing procedure.
