how to create Assortment module in SAP SD?

Hi Experts,

I am new SAP SD and I am trying to create assortment module through WSV2, as i want it for value contract. But when I added a material into it , it gave error that "material is not present in MARA table" although they are present I have already checked it.

Also please tell me is there any difference between product hierarchy and assortment module?

Please guide me what to do about it.

    Is this the original message or freely translated: "material is not present in MARA table" ?

    Please double click the message and post the error message number.

    Entry & & & does not exist in & (check entry)

    Can you show a screenshot from your WSV2 screen with the entered number, as well as a screenshot from SE16N from table MARA for the material where you get this error message.

    strange - usually I believe SAP messages - especially in case it is a very trivial select command to check whether the material exists in a table.

    So this makes me assume that the check is carried out with a different value than entered or the entry in the table is stored with a different value than shown. Sounds a bit weird, but material numbers are converted from a user entry. Technically the field is 18 characters long, depending on customizing less number of characters are possible, also customizing is if the values are stored with leading zeros or lexicographic, and there are still options to influence the conversion routine.

    Which means if you enter 18 then the value is stored like this 000000000000000018

    Some companies have special requirements and want number like that: 018

    and here it starts to get complicated and own coding is the required, done incorrectly it my be a reason that the material is no longer found in the table. Check what if you get the same error in the maintenance transaction for the material MM02 or MM42.

    Then ask an ABAPer to debug the situation and if all is standard then you need to contact SAP
