Change error message to warning

Hey, guys!

Even though I have set message 06 330 as a warning message in customizing, it is still appearing as an error message when I try to create a new PO in ME21N as a copy of a different document type. Am I forgetting something?

I'm pretty sure I've seen this as a warning message in another environment, how can I set this way? Thanks in advance for any help.

    The Reportsource MM06EF0L_LESEN_REFERENZ has a time stamp of 18.12.2001 17:10:00 SAP

    So at least since that date it is a hard coded error message.

    Also the long text of the error message is written in a way that it does not fit for a warning message

    Please read OSS note 1889233 - Not able to copy Contract from one document to another document

    for details on the design along with SAPs recommendation not to change this with a modification.

      Hi! Thanks for you quick answer.

      Yes, I have found this note earlyer, that applys to ME31K, also have found this thread regards ME41 that the user says "The enjoy transaction ME21N, for example, allows to convert a PO to another one with a different document type."

      https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/1512534

      That's why I decided to post here... Have SAP changed the standard behavior? So it's no longer allowed to use this message as a warning in ME21N? Is there any SAP notes about it?
