Custom field not updated in MM17

Hello all,

I did checked other threads but nothing helped me to resolve the issue.Please find few of the threads below:

Issue-We have to update custom field in MARC table via MM17. We have extended the IDOC as per note-576160.Also we have added fields in MASSFLDLST to add custom fields in BUS1001 along with assignment of fields to field selection group(T130F).

Result-Custom field are available in MM17 but field values are not updating properly in MARC table and we are getting the below message:

The material cannot be maintained since no maintainable data transferred

Message no. MG160

Diagnosis

You wanted to maintain an existing material master record as follows:

By changing it

However, you have not yet maintained the material master record for the organizational levels and data fields specified, or user departments selected. You can therefore process this data only in Create mode.

By extending it

However, you have already fully created the material master record for the organizational levels and data fields specified, or user departments selected. You can therefore process this data only in Change mode.

In both cases, this message can appear if there is no maintainable user department left. This occurs if you have not set the Check required fields indicator when transferring data (program RMDATIND). Although the absence of an entry in required fields does not then necessarily result in an error, the number of maintainable user departments is reduced accordingly.

Procedure

Depending on the cause, maintain the material master record in Create or Change mode, or also transfer the missing required fields.

PS: These field are not available in material master and they are just appended fields in MARC table.

Need your valuable input to resolve this issue.

    I think nobody here will be able to help you on this with this limited information.

    This requires a hand on the system or a huge step by step description with screenshots to enable others to see what you have in your system.

    The OSS note 576160 - MM17: BAdI implementation for append fields alone has a length of 9 pages (without the coding part), it has steps from other notes as pre-requisites and links to 9 other OSS notes too.

    We would need to see what you have in your system for each of the mentioned steps in that note, we would even need to know more about your system e.g. whether you are in a standard ERP or in an Industry solution.

    For your last test we have no info in which screen this field is, nor what you entered in the selection. We do not know in which field group this field is and how it is defined there in regard to ALE.

    Best you sit together with an ABAPer (who has not done the initial implementation) to check if all steps have been done correctly. And if everything is right then you can probably open a call at SAP Support telling them that the note does not work.

    • HI Jurgen,

      Thank you for the answer.

      For testing purpose,i tried updating custom fields which are available in material master via MM17 but still getting the same message.

      Message no. MG160 : The material cannot be maintained since no maintainable data transferred

      Could you please guide me on how to proceed with fixing the issue.
