SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing Work Center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Documents View.
  3. In the search field, Search for the Customer Invoice ABC (ABC represents the Customer Invoice ID).
  4. Select View All.
  5. Go to the Pricing tab.
  6. In the Line item, select the dropdown arrow.

The Price Component Value is displayed in the system.


The calculation of the Price Component Value is performed using Base UoM (Unit of Measure) maintained for the Line Item in the system.

While performing the calculation of the amount for Price Component Value in the Customer Invoice document, the system multiplies the Price List of Line Item by the quantity maintained in the document always using the Base UoM (Unit of Measure) of the Material.

The equation for this calculation is:

(Price List * Base UoM) = Price Component Value

In case there is a quantity conversion maintained for the material, the system will always convert the quantity to the Base UoM when performing the calculation.

The equation for this calculation is:

(Price List *Base UoM*UoM converted) = Price Component Value

Note: A Line Item can have other price components that can affect the Total amount of the Price Component Value, the equations showed above can only be applied in case no other price component was used for the Invoice of the Line Items.
