Symptoms




Trying to understand why two surcharge modifier lines are applying.

Setup:
category set = COMPRAS
Flex Structure = PO Item Category
Default Category = ACCESS INFORMATICA
ESCRITA
MOVEIS

category set = INVENTARIO
Flex Structure = PO Item Category
Default Category = ESCRITA
Categories
MOVEIS
ESCRITA

For the functional area, Order Entry, category set = COMPRAS.
PTE form
Source Systems tab
Advanced Pricing
Under Functional Areas for Source Systems

Purchasing.....COMPRAS...disabled

Order Entry.....COMPRAS....Enabled

Surcharge Modifier defined with many lines, but the two important lines are:
Item Category = MOVEIS
Item Category = ESCRITA


Here is what happens:
When item defined with Categories (Master Items form):
Category set / Category
Inventario / ESCRITA
Compras / MOVEIS

Both modifiers lines - ESCRITA and MOVEIS - apply to order.

Why?

It seems to support the pricing engine is ignoring the category set/category
combination as given in the Master Items form.
Even though COMPRAS is defined/associated as the default category set, the
item is only defined in the category = MOVEIS.....ESCRITA should not apply.

NOTE: Yes, in the category set = COMPRAS, it contains categories of MOVEIS
and ESCRITA. But in the master items form, the item is only defined in
MOVEIS for category set = COMPRAS.
