HI,

First of all check Activate Price/discount form and select all check boxes to activate the pricing.

(AP>setup>Price/discount> Activate price/discount)  OR (AR>setup>Price/discount> Activate price/discount)

1.After creating Customer Price/discount group and item discount group & close the forms.

2.Open sales order > Create new order ... In the Price/Discount (tab- header) , specify Line discount group which you have created above.

3. In Sales order, Click on Trade agreements> Select Line discount form.

4. In Line discount form, mention Quantity as 20 and Discount as 10 ... save it & close this form.

5. At bottom, select item, Quantity = 20, Price = 1500

Here you will see discount filed with 10 and Net amount will be : 29800. ... You may say how i got 29800???

A> Quantity * Discount = 20 * 1500 = 30000

B> Discount 10 on Quantity of 20 ....... >>> it means , 10 * 20 = 200..

Note: In the Line discount form in the Discount field we mentioned 10 .... it means 10 discount on "EACH ITEM".

C> Now deduct , 30000 - 200 = 29800.

Try this example. i hope you will do it now.

Line discounts - Here you specify discounts as percentage or as an amount. The discount is applied to the Unit price, i.e. the price from the Price agreement. You can also set up different discounts depending on quantity ordered. With this type of Trade Agreement AX only takes into account the quantity ordered on a single sales order line.

Total discount - Use it to specify one discount for the whole sales order. It is applied to the total amount of the sales order. Use it when you want to give a discount depending on the amount of the sales order and not on the quantity of items ordered.

In the Line, Multiline, Total discounts, options are available to specify two additional discount percentages in the Discount percentage 1 and Discount percentage 2 fields. These discount percentages work same as for Line,Multiline and Total discount agreements.

But calculation for Multiline and Total discount will be done through Calculation button> Total discounts in PO or SO lines and it's Discount % can be seen in Price/Discount tab of the Order (header). where as for Line & Multiline discounts we can view these in Price/Discount (tab) of SO or PO order lines.

Dear Sarathy

Check whether my process is right or wrong?

1) I create a group in A/C Rec>setup>price/discount>customer discount/price group

here i create a group for line discount

in trade agreement click lines discount, item code ALL,quantity 10,discount 3

2) than in customer detail,select a customer,in discount option select line discount group

3) create a SO.enter customer and item details

i have enter 12 units with price 350 each.in discount it shows 35.

after that i issue the invoice but it doesn't show any discount.

What should i do for this?

Regards

Hi Artala,

Check this Example:

1. In the Line discount form, Qty = 10, Discount = 5 .. save it & close.

2. In the Sales Order , select item, Qty = 15 and Price = 100, In the Discount field you can see 5 and Net amount is 1500 - 75 = 1425. ... 15 * 5 = 75. (Qty * Discount)

It means, the discount (5) will be applicable for each item quantity. .. here in this example, at line discount form we mentioned 10 as Qty it mean, if we buy or sell 10 items then only we are eligible for 5 discount. if not there won't be any discount.

At sales order level we took 15 as quantity so, it s more than 10 quantity and so we are eligible for discount 5 per item.

Hi,

Before invoice only that net amount 1425 will be seen in the Net amount field. I think you might not mentioned the discount of 5 in the Line discount form. please check once again that Line discount form.

What Quantity & discount you mentioned in Line discount form ? what quantity you selected at Sales order line?

Hi,

I think you have configured the Line Discount "TWICE" at AR> Setup> Price/Discount> Customer/ discount group> line discount form  as (Qty = 10 and Discount = 5)    and   You configured One more Line Discount at AR> Sales Order > Trade Agreements> Line Discount form as (Qty = 10 and Discount = 5)  .... Check this setups once.

So, Obviously you will be getting Discount as 10 (5 + 5).

If YOU go with the above mentioned Quantity in Sales order : Qty - 10 , Price - 100 and Discount - 10 then net amount should be : 900

OR  if you take the Quantity as 15 , Price as 100 and discount - 10 , then net amount will be 1350.

Check the setups. I hope your issue will get resolved.

Hi,

You delete the line once and re create it. may be buffer is not updating or else create new  SO with the same quantity,price and discount and make sure you apply this time only one time. i mean you apply it at Sale order > Trade Agreements > Line discount.

Hope it will run this time.
