Problem in Updating MARC-LZEIH (Time unit) using Bapi material save data

Hi Experts,

I am trying to update MARC-LZEIH (Time unit) using Material_Save_data. But when I pass the value, it is getting deleted when goes to the FM - 'MATERIAL_UPDATE_ALL'.

Then it gives the error

"Specify the relevant time unit".

Kindly help, if you know the answer.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, the excel file will have value - D which will be internally converted to 10, using CONVERSION_EXIT_CUNIT_INPUT

    But the problem is, when it comes to MATERIAL_UPDATE_ALL FM, the value (MARC-LZEIH) is cleared off. I am not sure, why it is cleared off. Tried holding the value using enhancement point too.

    So when it comes to the point, it shows - MARC-MAXLZ have value and MARC-LZEIH is initial.

    So error error comes.



  • did you already try the same in MM02?

    When checked in MM02, the time unit(MARC-LZEIH) is disabled and it takes the value from Period indicator for SLED (MARA-IPRKZ). That is, when we change the Period Indicator, the Time Unit, changes automatically.

    As shown below (Plant and Storage View).

    I have given the value of MARA-IPRKZ to MARC-LZEIH too.

    Still it is not taking the value.

    Not sure, what value i am missing.

    First of all you can't update a field which is set to display only.

    In my system is MARC-LZEIH not getting a default with the same unit like it is maintained in MARA-IPRKZ, I think this is some own development.

    Further is the field MARC-LZEIH together with MARC-MAXLZ in field selection group 80 in standard SAP. This just means the setting for display, mandatory, optional and hidden is effecting both fields and not just one. This also means it must be customized.

    So without knowing more details I am afraid we can't give you solution. You need to investigate your system.

    From the message itself it expects that you always have to have values for both fields MARC-LZEIH and MARC-MAXLZ

      Hi Jurgen,

      Thanks for your time.

      Yes, as you mentioned, they have created 3 enhancement spots which to make them display and retrieve the value by default according to SLED values.

      Informed my functional regarding this and now it is updating.

      Thanks a lot for your kind help.

    Please search with the text "Specify the relevant time unit+MARC-LZEIH+sap" as I could find two discussions giving solutions in two different cases.
