MM17 Inadvertently changes X-Plant Material Status (MARA-MSTAE)

When using MM17 to mass change data in MARA it also updated the X-Plant Material status even though that wasn't one of the fields I selected when starting the transaction. I don't recall it ever doing that and I wonder if perhaps it's a local change that was made to MM17. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar?

    Hi,

    Please check the material change history from material master - menu - environment - display changes or MM04 and understand the change.

    You may also try to do the same change in any test system and check whether you are able to replicate it. Ifs so, revert back with details.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    I do recognize this from earlier experience. The Mass transaction should be used very carefully as it sometimes adjusts other fields as wel. I experienced that mass changes to the MARA table lead to clearing the Old Material Number field. I also saw it in mass changing the business partner, vendor and customer. I always checked which fields were effected in MM04 (change log for materials) and afterwards used it.

    Similar thing happened to me.

    With MM17, I selected table MARC, and field "MARC-MMSTA", I did input the plant the material number 2000+ materials.

    But it turned out almost all materials in all plants got updated.

    Usually, MM17 doesn't even allow to input that many materials into the MM17 at the same time.

    Now the whole team is on this task.
