MARA customized field is empty in SE16

Hello everyone,

My company has a customized field. Each material is identified with its number (MARA table, field: MATRN) and another code (Table MARA, field : ZZDKPUEPBG).

I need to fetch all material code and the customized code.

The problem is, in SE16, MARA table, I get everything but the customized field whichis empty for every material. It does not depend on the division.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advace.

    Do you want to say that in SE16 the field is empty while it is filled in your material master?

    if yes then please show screenshot of your material master view and from SE16

    • SE16 will usually show the same content, SE16N is just modern and more handy than SE16. It can show all fields by doubleclick while in SE16 you would need to mark your selection fields and fields that are to be shown.

      IF you have no access to SE16N then I assume you are not a consultant and you should go with your issue to your local IT.

    Based on the comments in Juergen's answer - it seems like a very odd issue. There are only a few possibilities I can imagine:

    - some odd presentation issue in SE16 (try disabling conversion exits in the options, also use ALV grid display);
    - you're looking in a wrong client (MANDT);
    - technically, the field could show up as linked to a DB field but in the ABAP code it can be manipulated to be read/written elsewhere.

    The latter would be rather weird and a bad practice but people do weird stuff like that. Start SQL Trace (ST05) then use MM02 to update the field and SQL Trace will show exactly where it's coming/going.
