    I believe it indicates internally assigned expiration date, (B) or externally assigned date.

    I'm thinking that the B indicates expiration date information has been provided in the material master and the system requires an expiration to be calculated or provided. If expiration date information is not maintained, I think you'll see the "E". I.e. for externally provided. You can enter an expiration date if you choose, but the system won't calculate it for you or require you to put it in at the time of goods receipt.

    The materials you mentioned as being blank are of material types that typically are not batch managed and hence no expiration dates are expected. (They can be if you want, but normally they are not).

    You should be able to check a few materials and verify my thoughts.

      I think you need to look at my suggestion again, maybe a bit deeper or maybe another related field in the expiration info.

      The name of the field SLED_BBD indicates something to do with Shelf life. SLED is SAP speak for Shelf Life Expiration Date.

      If your maintaing shelf life data, you should always have a Plant/storage view 1 because that is the screen the shelf-life information is kept on.
