      You can only change the price component value if it has not already been defined in the system.
    • Manual entry has priority
      You can change the price component value even after it has been defined in the system.)
    • No restrictions
      You can change the price component value irrespective of it being defined or not.
    • Not possible to process manually
      You must have defined a price component value in the system master data. The system does not allow you to change the value manually.
