Old material number(MARA-BISMT) Change in Mass

Hi,

I would like to change/update the old material number (MARA-BISMT) for the relevent material number. I have an access for the transaction code MM17 (Mass Maintenance). But the issue is i can't update different material with the relevent old material number. For example, Material number 100,101,102 having the same old material number as 200, then i can able to change/Update through the transaction code MM17. Here Material Number - 100 need to change as 200 ; Material Number - 101 need to change as 201; Material Number - 102 need to change as 202. For this case i can't change. Kindly suggest the alternate way or suggest me any possibilty to update. I need to update above 500 materials. If you help me its really helpfull to update in mass. Kindly let me know if you have more clarification.

Thanks!

Regards,

Arputharaj.V

    As suggested, LSMW will certainly work. however, if you never did LSMW before, then you are probably quicker with MM17 for this one time activity.

    List the materials in MM17, get you Excel with old material number into the same sequence of material numbers, then just copy and paste a page for page. Having 20 lines per MM17 page you only need to do this 25 times and you are done.
