MPN and Manufturer number at Basic data tab in MDG-M

Hi Experts,

We have a requirement to bring External Manufacturer(LFA1- EMNFR) in basic data tab. We have done this in backend(MM) by adding subscreen, as shown in below figure and now needs to be brought in Governance - MDG and nwbc.

Now the problem is , while doing SMT mapping, I can not find *LFA1* structure in target structure, which is obvious , as LFA1 is not related to MM. So, how to do SMT mapping and proceed on this?

Has any body done MPN and manufacturer settings in MDG- M?

Is there any BF available by which this field()Ext. Maufact No) and the MPN will come in MDG and calculation will be done automatically?

fyi.. MPN is already present in Purchasing tab as shown below:


Kind Regards,

    Hello Rajeev ,

    The MARA- MFRNR of the ECC t-code MM03 is already mapped to attribute MFRNR of the entity MARAPURCH.

    Please look at Mapping between structures MDG_BS_MAT_S_MARA and /MDGMM/_S_MM_PP_MARAPURCH .

    But coming to your requirement, I am not sure I understand. You want to use SMT mapping to map the Staging to the Active area & vice versa, correct?

    Now in your case when you add a field in the Basic View of Material Master (MM03), which table does that value of that field get stored in? Obviously it is NOT the table LFA1. You are storing a field relevant to the Material Master so which table has it, is it MARA? Is it it some Z table? You would thus do SMT mapping of this ECC reuse field o(f the whichever table you have added it to)to your staging attribute. hope this makes sense.
