Article extension to large number of sites



I am working for a client who has more than 2500 stores across the country. When I create an article, I use the reference DC and Store for maintaining the Logistics data. When I raise a PO for one of the stores, I get this "Article 3293 not maintained in XXXX". If I maintain the site specific data for the article, then I am able to raise a PO.

(Without a customised program for extension) It is impossible to maintain the site data for all the 2500 stores. I tried the REFSITE for reference sites to maintain Logistics and Replenishment Data too... but still no luck.

Can anybody help me in this regard where with minimal maintanence I can use the article for larger number of stores.



Error message as follows:-

Article 3293 not maintained in site 1007

Message no. M3351


No material master data exists for material 3293 in plant 1007. This may be for one of the following reasons:

  • You have not yet created any data for the material at this plant level.
    In this case, create the plant data by maintaining material master record 3293 from the Purchasing, MRP, or Storage view.
  • The material is a planned material, that is, the data has been scheduled for this plant level for a future point in time.
    In this case, you can display the planned changes for the material.


Make sure your entries are correct.
