Differences in Varaint articles


Hi SAP Guru's

Need your help in the below scenario.

I have one generic article which has got 6 varaint articles. When i assigned any specific charactertistics at the generic articles, it is not getting copied to all the variants. When I checked the "Different area of validity" in the basic data, i could see some varainces in assignments at the varaint article level.

Attached the screenshot for reference.

Could you please help in finding the rootcause.

Thanks

    Hi Kevin,

           Please do the following

    1.Go to CLWG and check if the status is set to "Released" in Basic data tab.

    2.Also check if Characteristics assignment is correct

    3.Then go to CT04 and check the characteristics is set to "Released" in Basic data tab and also check the values are correct.

    4.Go to WRFCHAR and check the Characteristic values assigned to characteristics.

    5.If required go to WRFMATCHARVAL and change the characteristics value for GenericArticleVariant.

    Hope it helps

    Best Regards,

    Aram.

    • Hi Kevin,

              In this case, i would suggest you to go to MM44 and go to change history of each of these individual variants(problematic ones) and check if there are any changes that happened which may give you some clue.

      Or there may some chances you had made some changes in characteritics before or after creating some of the variants which may give you some inputs.

      Hope it helps

      Thanks,

      Aram.

    Hi Guru's

    Any solution on the below query.

    Assume a generic article has got 10 variants and one of the variant having the issue on characteristics alignment. As a result the characteristics wouldn't get updated to that variant article. When the artmas Idoc goes out of SAP to other application, say reporting application, this particular variant article will be missing with the characteristics update. As a result there is lot of discrepancies happened.

     

    Difference in variant.

    Please can anyone help to understand why the difference is occurring. I have checked all the basic setting of the characteristics and everything is well maintained.

    Appreciate your help,

    Regards,

    Kevin Easaw

    Hi Kevin,

    Can you please give some more details?

    What is the relevancy indicator for the characteristics you have added?

    The relevancy indicator will be a main attribute driving the characteristics.

      Hi Amit,

      Relevancy indicator is marked as 2 (Relevant to Varaints). Though the characteristics is assigned many generic article, the differences in variants are seen only for few articles.

      Do you have any idea on why there is a difference.?

      Thanks
