    All the profiles are used in different tabs of Product location Master itself. This helps in clubbing up some repeatable and reusable components in different Product location masters.

    You may need to read help text for each one of them since most of them are infrequently used profiles. Try doing an F1 on each of them. Essentially these profiles help you "define once and use everytime" reducing the load on Master Data maintenance. Each profile is a group of fields, hence it is easier to change these groups of fields quickly for a number of Location Products through MASSD transaction or otherwise. Let us know if you want information on specific profile fields.

    The profiles you see on the initial screen of the product master are there only to create and maintain the Profiles. So you go to /SAPAPO/MAT1 and create or change the different profiles. This does not need any product or location to be entered in those fileds.

    You can then go to any specific locatin and just change enter the profile in the relevant tabs to make the fields that are attached to these profiles change

    In addition to using the profiles for simplifying the changing of field values its used also to overwrite the values that are entered in the product master. If you have a value in the product master and use a profile then the value from the profile is the value that is considered.

      Hi,

      These are general profiles which can be used across product locations with same constraints.

      To create the profile you need to go on /sapapo/mat1 and check the radio button for which you want to create a profile and select create, this will take you to the next screen where you can configure the profile and save.

      You can now assign this profile to product location master data as per your requirement.

      Thanks,
