Application area MM


I want to maintain an entry in table T160M for message MM081 with category as 'E'. Purpose is to convert warning message in Tcode MM02 as Error.

I can see view V_160M exists. When i try to maintain entry in this table i see that application area MM is not found.

Please let me know how to maintain entry ''MM" for application area.

    How wonderful. Everytime this question is asked the same answers get repeated and obviously nobody ever tested the own reply.

    I explained it 4 years ago in this discussion

    Despite of the fact that you may find a way to add this number in this table, you still need program logic that you would look into this table to retrieve the user desired attribute. If it is not foreseen then the behavior will not change.

    I see that view V_160M is from tables T160M and T100. In my system, entry for application area MM 081 in language EN is present in T100 table. Whereas, there is no entry for MM 081 in table T160M.

    I am not sure how entry MM 081 came in table T100. Should i delete this entry in order for me to insert entry in T160M table via view V_160M.

    Kindly guide me as i am an abaper trying my luck with MM.

      Hi Imran,

      In OMT4 there is no option to add new entries. I checked the table T100 and T160M and it seems that the message type MM 081 do exist in Table T100 but not in T160M. If there is entry in both the tables then it will show up in OMT4 and you can make changes to the Warning to Error Message and vice versa.

      In SM30 Table name V_T160M, when you try to add Message Type MM it gives you an error (I believe this is the place where you need to add an entry). Imran, in the steps you provided, there is no Application area MM and I guess the application area is pulled from table T100 and T160M. I am trying to find out where we should add the Application Area MM and add message type 081 so it will show up in OMT4.

    Have you tried SM30 to maintain the table T160M.

    it will allow you to enter new entries or change existing.

    Thank you.
