Error messages in cost estimate

Hi all,

I have a question regarding the error messages in cost estimate (CK11N).

Where can I customize them (meaning f.e. change from warning into error).

I already found some messages in



Product Cost Controlling-

Product Cost Planning-

Basic Setting for Material Costing-

Error Management-

Define User-Defined Message Types.

But there are still some messges I cannot find there.

Any suggestions?

    All messages in SAP are defined in a five character unique ID, broken up into the first two characters denoting the category, and the last three denoting the no. A common transaction to change any and all messages in the system is OBA5. This transaction gives you message control at the user level - meaning, e.g., suppose a message needs to be labeled as error for only SOME users. This transaction gives you that flexibility.

    The changes are transportable. Use with caution though.

    Remember to assign points if found useful.
