    You should tell here if you have entered wrongly but you relaized after there was a transaction happened. In this case, you could not easily change the item code except create new one and the wrong item no. is deactivated. For the transactions made, clear it carefully by good issue or good receipts, the important one is the stock on hand must be zero prior to deactivate it.

    • Never mind.

      Just found it on the web.

      But, what does SAP say to the use of this tool?

      Hi

      That's what I am desperately looking for as well!

      Where can I find this SBO add-on 'Changer'?

      Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately you can't change the item code in the system, but if you have entered wrongly, you can switch the item "On Hold" on the left down corner so the item will be frozen and you cannot use it in any documents.

    However you can change the code by some SQL, but it is not recommended as you will lose the SAP support for that system.

      I don't know which version you use, in version 2004 in the Item Master Data window on the left down corner there are 2 checkboxes: "Valid" an "On Hold". If you check the "On Hold", the item will be forbidden to use, in this case when you want to add this item in a document, a window will appear: "Item xxx is frozen. Changes cannot be saved. Do you want to proceed?" Even if you click on answer "Yes", when you want to add the document, an error message will appear and you cannot add it. This way when you open the master data, you can see that the item is not in use (because the On Hold checkbox is checked) and also you can't use it in any documents.

      You can also try to "Cancel" the item by right-click on the header of the master data, in this case when you are searching for an item to put in a document, it even will be not seen in the list so you can't choose it. But in this case you can "Restore" the item by right-click again on the header of the master data.

    Item code can be changed as long as no transactions (Opening balances, Sales, Purchase, Inventory Issue/Receipt) have been done using that Item.
