VA02/VA03 : Display Characteristic Values

Sep 05, 2017 at 10:27 AM

Hi ,

I am able to change material characteristic values while Sales Order creation using VA01 .I have used FM CUCB_SET_CONFIGURATION to change a characteristic value. The order is saved with the changed characteristic value. I can see them using FM VC_I_GET_CONFIGURATION by using VBAP-CUOBJ.

The problem is when I'm trying to view characteristic values using VA02/Va03, the values are being set by 'material classification data'.

Ideally the material characteristic values should be derived from VA01 and same should be displayed in VA02/VA03.

Is there any configuration that should be maintained to derive characertistic values from VA01 in VA02/VA03.

Appreciate your help .

The information that a value is set by 'material classification data' is only displayed in case in classification, the allowed value range for a characteristic was restricted to a single value - which results in the system automatically setting the value by default in the configuration.
Therefore, in case in VA01 the configuration is opened and the value that was already set by the system is again assigned by a user, the system will still display the message that the value is set by 'material classification data' due to the restriction in classification.

At transaction VA01 why you are changing product configuration by using FM.

I will say you are trying to change the configuration through the program for the sale order which was already configure and release to production. system can do this in run time it will shows like it allow you to enter the value apart from the classification but it will not save this configuration. According to me it has to fire inconsistency error.

If you create the sales order VA01 and try to enter the value which you pass through the FM same it will allow. Please check

Note: The most important things is, if instance of the sales order is locked and for the same sales order you try to change value of configuration, it can not be change any how. Better create new sales order.

For Analysis Run Transaction code CUTABLEINFO and check the instance of the respective sales order and line item.
