    Hi All,

    You Can Change the Master Records up to certain extent only. You are asking to make the change in Material No. in Material Master it is not possible. You can only Copy the Material you wish to the Material No. You Desire.

    Dear Anirudh

    If you want to change the name of the material in material master data

    1. First copy the material master data with new material name T.code MM01

    2. Give the old material name in the new material Basic data 1 view in the

    OLD MATERIAL NUMBER

    3. Transfer the old material quantity to new material through Movt. Type 309 with

    T.code MB1B

    4. Cancle the all open POs with the old material name

    5. Block the old material name with T.code MM06, because if the user make the

    Transactions with old material name i.e Purchase orders, Production orders

    etc.,

    In future u can make the transactions with the new material name

    With regards,

    B.Ravindranath
