Using of transaction MMCC - copy plant data without creating new material

Hello!

We need a function that gives us the possibility to extend existing material master data without creating a new material.

for example:

Material 100001 is existing with plant, sales and warehouse in plant 1000. we want to copy these views to plant 2000, 3000, 4000 easily in one step.

we found transcation MMCC and in that documentation is the following sentence:

"To enhance or change an existing material (without creating a new material), the Basic Data and Do Not Change Existing Data indicators must be deselected. The basic data is not changed in this case, however"

unfortunately i`m unable to do so. if i enter the existing material 10000110 in the first screen and deselect "change existing data" and "basic data" the system is telling me at the end a new material number with a error

so what am i doing wrong? thanks!

    You missed to enter the material number in the second screen, which is needed in case you want extend existing materials. You leave it empty when you want create new materials

    Your description is muddy, as it is inconsistent since you used 3 different material numbers in your story. (don't invent numbers to make a story trivial, just use the numbers that you use when you have your problem, this is much clearer for professionals and problem solvers)

    This error looks to me as if SAP was not able to find 10002037 in your MARA table.

    It is unknown whether this number 10002037 is identical with your reference material or a new material number that shall be created.

    Please post a screenshot from your selection screen with the data that finally caused this error log and as well a screenshot from your MMCU customizing.

    Sorry for that confusing description. this is the selection:

    This is the following screen:

    And the result:Material 10002038 seems to be the next free material number. So the system tried to create a new one

    MMCU is complelty untouched.

    Thanks Jürgen and schöne Grüße ;)

    thanks Jürgen.

    this seems to work. Now the system is telling me that some fields has to replaced based on the target plant 4000.

    Can you tell me what am i doing wrong in MMCU? maybe you have an example for me?
