Multiple Local Product Categories for One ECC Material Group

Hello experts,

I have a question regarding Product Categories. I am using an Extended Classic Scenario and so, I retrieve Material Groups from the backend. Nevertheless, in order to have a more accurate split than ECC Material Groups in SRM, I would like to create local Product Categories which point on the same ECC Material Group. Eg. :

ECC Material Group

- SRM Product Category 1

- SRM Product Category 2

I saw that I can create this kind of structure in COMM_HIERARCHY and I updated it in the PPOMA_BBP (I set * for backend and for SRM).

Nevertheless, when I create a SC, I can not find the local Product Categories I created?

Do you know how I could process?

Thanks for your help

    Hi Patrick,

    Looks like you got confused in understanding the concept.

    You can not create a Local product category (material group) from a back end product category.

    You can have both backend R/3 material groups and local product categoris (material groups) parallelly.

    That means in COMM_HIERARCHY for R3MATCLASS hierarchy you have two nodes created under that, one for backend material groups and the other for local material groups.

    In stand alone scenario or de-coupled scenario you can use local product categories and not in Extended classic and Classic scenarios.

    For accessing a local product category you should have a local P.Org, local P.Group and the users should be assigned to these local P.Orgs or P.groups.

    If you have such a setting in your org. structure then you can create S.Cs for local Product categories and local materials.

    Hope this makes you more clear in understanding the issue.

    Clarifications are welcome.
