How to tag sample materials?


Hi Gurus,

We have a specific requirement to identify sample materials separately. In our company we have created material numbers based on unit of measure,

say for example for material "Wheat floor" we have five different material numbers created based on the package size it is sold. Like material number 10001 - Wheat floor 1 KG, Material number 10002 - Wheat floor 2 KG, Material number 10003 - Wheat floor 5 KG,Material number 10004 - Wheat floor 50 KG and Material number 10005 - Wheat floor 100 KG. In these five materials 10001 to 10003 are sample materials which are given as sample, where as once the customer places the regular order they are supplied as 50KG or 100KG bags. So 10001, 10002 & 10003 are sample materials where as 10004 and 10005 are regular materials. Now we want a parameter in material master which we can use to differentiate sample materials from regular materials. Please let me know your inputs on which filed would be ideal to tag sample materials.
