    <b>Hi

    Make small search in sdn there are several posts on the same issue</b>

    <b>Item Category Group</b> is one of the component which along with the Sales Doc Type, The Item Usage and Higher Level Item Category decide about the Item Category in a sales doc

    <b>General Item cat Group</b> : by default NORM ( depending upon the material type system automatically proposes item category Group in material master system takes this general item category group as one of the factor to determine item category of line item )

    Ex: Standard Item, Text Item, Value item, Free of Charge item

    <b>General Item category Group</b> is an extension item category group. Example: if one select item catagory group as NORM, but under item category group, NORM can further be classified as Service item, packagaing item or Normal item using "general item category group". Also, General item category group is maintained at client level, this field can be maintain from basic data view. Thus in case item category group is missing, then general item category group is used for item category determination

    hi,

    Item Category determines the processing of any Item/material that we enter in a sales order and in this way it also effects the processing of any sales doc in which it is used.

    Item Category Group is one of the component which along with the Sales Doc Type, The Item Usage and Higher Level Item Category decide about the Item Category in a sales doc.

    for example we can ERLA as item cat group and carry out the header level pricing or we can LUMF and do the item level pricing in case of a Sales BOM.

    General item category group talks about further classification of a material. Like NLAG- non stock material can be used to identify bom header items, service items.
