Hello Experts

I have a question, i am not sure if it is possible

I have created a field called Product Category in the Item Master Data UDF

My question, would it be possible to display this Product Category as a column in the Bill of Materials window.

So in the Item master data, all products will be categorised, and in the BOM the product codes rows will show which category they belong

Can someone tell me if it's possible and how i can acheive it

Thank You

Regards

Rahul

Hello Rahul,
I think that is possible. You need to setup a new Fild in ITT1 (length belongs to your filed Category)
after that you receive a new colum in you BOM.
now you need a query setup as Formatted search (you have to change to your field-Name)

SELECT U_Category FROM OITM T0
where itemCode = $[$3.1.0]

save this as query in your query-manager

open a bom and go to new fileld in ITT1 (Category)
Press: SHIFT-CTRL-F2 to enter Setup and search your saved query.

now the info from OITM will filled in BOM

hope that helps

Hi Markus

Thanks for replying

I understood the query setup as formatted search and the rest.

The only bit I am not so sure is setting up a new field in ITT1. Where do I go to in SAP to add a field in ITT1?

Thanks

Rahul

Ahh ok..

please do the following:

Tools --> Customisation Tools --> User-defined-Fields Mgmt

-> Production --> BoM - Rows

ADD

Lenght similar to your Field in Itemmaster OITM

-- OK

Now you'll get a new coumn in ITT1 (Category)

new Fields appear at the end of your Window from BOM.

Hope that help you..
