Reproducing the Issue

Our example looks at opportunities, but the same is true for other views such as sales orders, sales quote.

  1. Go to Sales Work center
  2. Go to Opportunities view
  3. Select show all and find for opportunity ABC (ABC represents the name of the opportunity)
  4. Go to Products facet
  5. Enter the Product A123 (A123 represents the id of the product),
  6. Select Save and you will see that based on the price from price list XYZ and quantity entered, the net amount is calculated.
  7. Go to Price Lists view
  8. Select Show all and find for XYZ (XYZ represents the name of the price list)
  9. Find for Product A123 and change the price 
  10. Select Save and release the price list XYZ
  11. Open the opportunity ABC

You will now see that price of the product A123 is updated here, but the net amount is still not updated in reference to the change made.
Nevertheless, if you add the same product A123 in a new line, the updated price is taken and net amount calculated correctly for the second line, but the first line item, is still the same.


If master data are changed, existing data in transactional documents are never updated automatically. This is also the case for price master data.
Hence, the net amount is correctly unchanged until you trigger a redetermination by a modification in the opportunity, e. g. by changing the quantity of the item.

Nevertheless for net price it is different as this is a transient field, i. e. it is not persisted. Thus, it’s read from master data every time the opportunity is opened. Hence, for the Price it’s not possible to show the value used for the net amount calculation.

For performance reasons, price calculation happens only for those items affected by a changes. Hence, if you add an item, price is calculated only for this added item. If you change one of two items, then only for the changed item the price is calculated.

If you change price relevant header fields (like the distribution channel), this affects all items and therefore price is calculated for all items.


This is the standard behavior of the system.
