2425906 - List Price 0,00 is not Taken over during Data Migration of a Sales Document


You entered the list price 0.00 in the migration template for a sales document such as a sales quote but the list price is not taken over in the created sales document but instead the followin error is displayed: Item XX: Mandatory List Price missing for the price calculation.

Reproducing the Issue

We will use the migration of sales quotes as an example:

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select the your implementation project and click on the Open Activity List button.
  4. Navigate to the extend Integrate and Extend tab and open activity Migration of Sales Quote
  5. Show All Files.
  6. Select the respective migration file.

You can see in the details under the Items - Data tab that the List Price 0 is maintained.

  1. Go to the New Business work center.
  2. Select the Sales Quotes view.
  3. Open sales quote XYZ (XYZ represents the ID of the sales quote which was migrated via the prviously mentioned migration file).
  4. Navigate to the Items tab.
  5. You can see that the line XX item has no List Price (XX represents the line item number).
  6. The following error is displayed: Item XX: Mandatory List Price missing for the price calculation.

You expected that the list price 0,00 is displayed.


There is a restriction that a 0 amount in the list price cannot be migrated for sales documents such as e.g. sales quotes or contracts . The technical restriction is due to the fact that the system cannot distinguish between the following two cases:

  1. You have entered a 0 list price for the item.
  2. You have kept the list price field blank.

When the list price 0 is maintained in the migration template, the migration service will check the master data and pull the price from there. If there is no list price maintained in the migration template or the master data of the product/service, the error will occur.

Due to this restriction it is not possible to migrate items with a 0 amount if no list price is maintained for the item.


This is the current system behaviour.
