    Prerequisites

    If you use the material ledger, the material must be settled in it.

    If the old material type did not require you to specify a price control (for example, standard price or moving average price) for the material, the new material type must not be configured such that it allows only standard price as the price control.

    If the material has been maintained from the Production Resources/Tools view, this view must also be allowed for the new material type.

    If the material is not a configurable material, the new material type must not be allowed only for configurable materials.

    In Customizing for the Material Master (in Define Attributes of Material Types), the following indicators must have the same setting for the old material type and for the new material type:

    Material for process indicator

    Manufacturer part indicator

    If inspection plans are required for quality management inspection of the material, they must be allowed for the new material type.

    The Material type ID indicator (presently used only in Retail) must be the same for the old material type and for the new material type.

    If the material is already in stock, or if reservations or purchasing documents exist for it, the following conditions must also be met:

    The stock values of the material of the new material type must be updated in the same G/L account as the stock values of the material of the old material type.

    Quantities and values of the material of the new material type must be updated in exactly the same way in all plants as quantities and values of the material of the old material type.

    If there is a transfer requirement for the material and if quants of the material exist, the new material type must also allow the material data to be maintained from the Warehouse Management view.

    If the material, whose material type you want to change, was handled in batches and if, due to the maintenance statuses of the new material type, the material can no longer be handled in batches, although batches still exist, you cannot change the material type.

    • Hi ,

      You could change Material type from Raw Material to Semifinished Goods ,but before that make sure that you don't have any valuated stock at plant level. As due to this you may not be able to change as account determination for the two material types differs.
