Sales Orders and Trade Discounts

I'm being told by Oracle that this is "working as designed" but want to run it by the list for ideas.

We have used the Trade Discount field on the Sales Order in order to discount parts for some time now. What we didn't realize is that for parts we had been discounting in the past, they were not parts that were being "marked up" via Price Rules so the Trade Discount was working just fine. But... we do have lots of parts that we have mark up rules on and we went to use the Trade Discount on them and did not like the results. Let me setup an example.

Part A has a sell price (in the F4106) of $5 and when it is sold on a Sales Order normally, it has a rule that marks it up by 1.13 so the sell price becomes $5.65. Now we decide that we want to give the order a 10% discount (via Trade Discount) and the part comes in as wanting us to sell it for $4.50. This is 10% off the $5, not the $5.65 that we were expecting.

I'm told that "this is how it works". So how can I discount an Order by 10% when I have markup rules? We don't have Advanced Pricing if that is of any consequence. Ideas? Solutions? I don't agree with JDE on this one.

Advanced Pricing is a snap to accomplish this. Someone who knows this could
show you how to do it in 15 minutes.

You probably have Advanced Pricing on your system, you just need to turn it
on and play with it.

I figured you would be first to respond, Andy! Just give me a "hint" as to where it is found in Advanced Pricing.

Along those lines, the only reason I don't think we "own" Advanced Pricing (we are an ancient customer) is that I think it was sold separately way back when. Also, I found the menu for Advanced Pricing and some of the programs that go with some of the options aren't in JDFOBJ. Where do you "turn it on" by the way.

I have already written Oracle back about the topic as well so I want to have some ammo if indeed Advanced Pricing is the only way to accomplish it.

Hi Sannan

I believe you turn on Advanced Pricing in the System Constants (F10 from the Branch Plan Constants screen Option 2 on G4141)... I can't fully check it out here because I've been secured out from using the function key....

I'm sure Andy will give you a few Tips on how to progress....

Sanaan, if you send me your email address, off line, I'll be glad to send you a couple of chapters from our Advanced Pricing Manual that walk you through the basics. You can email me at [email protected]
