  • The system applies the following logic when determining which version of a Variant Configuration product is effective: if a root item version with the right effective date exists, it is marked as effective today. If no such root item version exists, the non-root item version with an adequate effective date is marked as effective today. If multiple non-root item versions are effective on the same date, the one with the highest version number is displayed. - Technical Overview | SAP Help Portal
