    in general you can create links between document info records and material master in CV01N if you

    navigate to the 'Object Link' tab. Here select the tab 'Material Master' and you can enter the relevant material number here. After saving the document again the link will be created in table DRAD and you can see it also in CV03N (Display document) too.

    From object side (e.g. MM03) you can see all the linked documents in the 'Additional Data' area. Here you have to move to the 'Documents' tab and you will see all the linked documents to this material master.

    For the display on tab 'Basic Data 2' you have to maintain a document type in transaction OMT0 for it. Please note that you can only maintain one document type for this tab. So if you have to link more than one document type to this material master you should use the 'Additional Data' area.

    To grant a proper working with object links you have to maintain some customizing settings for DMS too.

    First it is necessary to maintain the correct screen numbers for all needed objects within the customizing. Therefore go to transaction SPRO and select

    Cross-Application Components

    - Document Management

    - Control Data

    - Maintain Screen for Object Link

    Here you can enter all needed SAP objects with the name and

    the related screen number. If you do not know the object or the screen number you can display a list of all SAP standard objects in transaction SE80 under function group CV130 ("Screens").

    So for material master you maintain the following entry:

    SAP object Screen Description Auth.


    MARA 201 material master 1

    Please note that the system automatically adds the leading "1" which is displayed in function group CV130 under

    "Screens". So for object MARA you just have to enter 201 instead of 1201.

    The value "1" in the column "Auth." is necessary to grant that always the latest dynpros and authorizations were used when linking this object to an document info record. This will avoid different problems by displaying linked documents from the object side.

    The next step is to decide which objects should be used in the different document types. Therefore please go to transaction DC10 and choose the relevant document type. Afterwards please select "Define object links". Here you can

    add all needed objects only by entering the object. The correct screen number is taken automatically. Also note the blue information buttons in the upper right corner which contain further necessary information about the possible settings of the current screen.

    After doing these settings in customizing you should be able to link the maintained objects to document info records and oppositely.
