    • the E in front of the number means ERROR

      then the message class 00 which is not at all a message class for MM or Logistics

      and message number 001 is just a convenient message with a lot variables for the lazy programmers who are not able to create a dedicated message class for own MM developments.

      This is a completely own developed error message and not SAP made.

      So any answer can just be a guess since nobody can know what kind of own developments are made in your system. Better you ask in your company than in a public board, this should anyway be your very first choice

    The existence of a value in a field is not really a proof that this content is allowed.

    It can as well just be an evidence that a change was done after the value was already in use without doing any data cleaning. So if you are going into this other material and change any field you probably hit the same error.

    And if that what you posted is the original error text, then I believe it is an homemade error.

    Hi,

    In standard, if the material group does not exists, system will issue the message MM086 ("The material group && does not exist")

    Your message seems to be an own development. Kindly check the message number and if its zmessage / with general message class, check with your technical team to find the logic behind the message. If its not a zmessage / message with general message class, let us know the message number.

    Regards,

    Have you deleted materials groups from the system ? if yes the re-instate that..then use the ones you interested to use. Deletion of materials groups in not advised as it causes inconsistancy in reports, transactions and master data.

    Thanks,
