CMR document is not printing the material if commodity code is available


Hi all,

when printing the CMR for a shipment, the material number and description is not printed if the commodity code of the material is filled in the material master. But this CMR document is an official document for forward carrier, customer...

On the big bags are labels attached with the material number and description (e.g. EXPP121A Talcum filled 10% PP). On the CMR document only the commodity code is printed (in this case 39023000 Polypropylene). This is not clear for the customer nor for the forwarding agent who both have to sign off the CMR document.

This is hard coded, but can somebody explain me what the reasoning is behind this?

thanks, Jurgen
