Including materials with item category group NLAG in sales BOM

We have non-stock material of item category group NLAG, which we would like to maintain as part of sales BOM with item category group LUMF as well. However, when we do this we get an error in item category determination in sales orders.

This is because the following entry is missing in SSCUI ID:

Order type/Item Category Group/Higher Level Item Category/Item Category


Is this entry maintainable by SAP through expert configuration option?

    Hi Abhijit,

    Modifying Item category determination is not part of approved Expert Configurations. I would suggest you to take it up with your CSM / PE as a specific business case and check if its feasible.

    It is not possible to create custom item categories in S4HC. The reason is that item categories as well as document types are at the core of the best practices enabled in S4HC. Allowing to have custom document types and/or item categories would deviate from the best practices and standards promoted in S4HC.

    Please refer to SSCUI 102807 in Manage Your Solution, where you can assign one or more item categories to single sales document types. Please note that currently you can only make restricted changes in this SSCUI i.e. you can specify which item categories the system proposes during document processing for each sales document type and item category group for only a few line items, the others are greyed out and cannot be modified.

    I hope this answered your question! If it did, please mark it as the 'Best Answer' so I can continue learning and answering questions in the community.

    Hi Abhijit,

    Did you find a solution for it ?

    We would like to put the same determination of item category in S4HC but we are blocked. How did you manage to solve it ?

    Many thanks,
