    Hi Ritesh,

    In Web Services: ID and Description node you have to define the Webservices ID and description and mark it as default .

    In the call structure you have to maintain the webpage to which the catalouge will be available and the username and password to access it .

    Once you do this catalouge radio button will be available in ME51N and ME21N.

    In EHP6 you cannot have more than one catalouges , for achieving this you have to Create implicit enhancement in the following method Implementations.

    Function group: MMPUR_OCI_API ->Classes LCL_CATALOG ->Method Implementations ->LOAD_CATALOG.

    Then you have to map the catalouge values in SAP .

    1. Initially need to create z table with the fields of Catalog ID, vendor, outline agreement, plant & purchasing group etc.
    2. Implement the Enhancement spot ES_BADI_ME_CATALOG, and write the code in the method MAP_CATALOG_VALUES
    3. Method having the change parameter as CT_OCI_ITEM to change the item details.

    Award if helpful!!
