Hi Experts,

Is there any filed in Material Master to create categories other than Material Type Material group?

Business had a requirement to see in COPA Report at different ‘Sales Categories’ levels, Ex: Regular sales, Tool Sales and Design sale etc., in order to get sales categories I want to create MM01.

Note that they don't want to create Derivation rule.

So please help me on this?

Hi Patra,

Thanks for your response!

There are small changes in my query,

Business Requirement: To see their Sales reports at Sales Category levels in COPA report, but they didn’t defined any sales categories either MM or SD.

I understood that they segregated their Sales Categories based on Sales Revenue GL A/C(s) combination.

Customer Accnt Assignmnt Grp + Material Accnt Assignmnt Grp+ Accnt Key = Revenue GL A/C.

In order to get this, I used @Table Lookup step to deriving Customer’s AAG & Material AAG from KNVV & MVKE to Global Usertemp1 & Usertemp2 respectively in COPA.

And I wrote Derivation step for combination of Usertemp1 + Usertemp2 to WWchar in order to give Sales Categories types

Ex: Usertemp1 Usertemp2 Sales Category (WWchar)

01 03 Running Sales

01 04 Design Sales

When I tested sales categories values are not triggered, please correct if missed any customization steps or any other?

Could you please help me on this?
