Update APO field TARGET_DUR by CIF interface


We would like to force APO Target Days' Supply by CIF with a constant.

Field to be displayed in /SAPAPO/MAT1 > Lot Size > Quantity and Date Determination.

Technical name = TARGET_DUR

Some fields are already forced using APO's BADI SMOD_APOCF005.

For example we force the Safety Stock Method with a constant and it works very well.


In debug mode, it_matloc and it_matlocx are well filled with our Safety days' supply constant.

But in the end, the value visible in /SAPAPO/MAT1 is still empty. It seems that CIF interface calculate or map this field again, after BADI SMOD_APOCF005.

Do you have any other idea to update Safety Days' Supply by CIF ?

Is there a BADI or an user exit more powerfull than SMOD_APOCF005 ?

Thank you !


Here is the code used (which works fine for field MSDP_SP_METHOD)

ls_cif_matloc-msdp_sb_method = 'BT'.

ls_cif_matloc-target_dur = 20.

MODIFY it_matloc FROM ls_cif_matloc.

READ TABLE it_matlocx

INTO ls_matlocx WITH KEY ext_matnr = ls_cif_matloc-ext_matnr

ext_locno = ls_cif_matloc-ext_locno.

IF sy-subrc = 0.

lv_tabix = sy-tabix.

ls_matlocx-msdp_sb_method = 'X'

ls_matlocx-target_dur = 'X'.

MODIFY it_matlocx FROM ls_matlocx INDEX lv_tabix.

    Hi Remy,

    I couple of weeks ago I load a document with an example of how to automate MAT1 fields when the materials are CIFfed. Please take a look of the document, I have detail the code:

    In my code, the dafaults are entered in a custom table: ZAPOSETUP. You can modify this based on your needs.

    I checked and the field TARGET_DUR is available to be automated. You will need to add something like:

    WA_IT_MATLOC-TARGET_DUR = 'your default'.

    Kind Regards,
