Extend material master issue

Dear Gurus,

i have two sales areas 1000+10+10 and 1000+20+10, plus have two plants 1000 and 2000.

from plant 1000 i can sale on both the sales areas, but on plant 2000 i can only sale via sales area 1000+10 (local sales)+10.

but problem is that when I extending the material on plant 2000 only for 1000+10+10 system also extend it on 1000+20+10.

Why this happen and How i overcome this problem or scenario.

Looking for the gurus feedback.

regards.

    >>>but problem is that when I extending the material on plant 2000 only for 1000+10+10 system also extend it on 1000+20+10.<<<

    I hope this behavior was not just because of April 1st (April Fool day) .

    It is not possible to have sales views created for 2 sales organisations at the very same time in MM01, you would need to execute MM01 twice. If that really happened then you are not using SAP standard transaction to create material masters.

      So in material master when i create first time for the local sales, by default all he countries are coming in the material master. as mention below.


      so after saving the material on local distribution channel when i want to extend it on the export distribution channel where KSA wants to dispatch/export the material, system suggest that its already extended o export distribution channel as well.

      i think that is due to different country assign in the material master.

      Looking for your response, in this regard,

      thanks.

      And thanks for your words.

      Not sure if i understand your question clearly but for the 1st part of your post, i believe you're talking about the countries that appear in tax data of material master. Coming to the 2nd part, you're saying that after creating the material for one distribution channel say 10 when you're going to extend it for another distribution channel say 20 system is prompting you with a message that material is already extended is that what you're trying to say?

      See now there are 2 things, apart from the wonderful suggestions and explanations you've received above you need to look at T-codes OX10, OVK1, OVK4. Check out the country for your plant and then look at tax categories that have been defined for that country. For 2nd part, please try to understand the relationship of sales organization, distribution channel and plant. Refer to below mentioned thread this might will clear your doubt. In case if you still feel that something has been missed then you can ask. Thanks.

    That is because you have already extended to both sales areas, when you extend to plant 2000, it is asking to maintain in 1000+20+10 also.

      Imran, are you sure that you've done the extension properly? Lets try it from 1st node once again. Create 2 materials and extend them by selecting views as sales org. data 1, sales org. data 2 and general/plant Data

      Material A                                            

      Plant 1000

      Sales org 1000

      Distribution channel 10 or 20

      Material B

      Plant 2000

      Sales org 1000

      Distribution channel 10

      now you've to be very careful while dealing with copying from option during extension. Set copy from values as blank while Material B extension. In case if the issue still persists then it would be great if you share snapshots for the same. Looking forward to your reply against the same. Thanks.

    Sales: sales org. 1 and Sales: sales org. 2 of material master are stored in table MVKE. The keyfields of this table are client, material number, sales organization and distribution channel but no plant. This is the standard design.
