Set different characteristic value in batch than in material

Hi,

in a material I've set a value for a characteristic in the batch class (022).

But when I create a batch of the material, I want to be able to choose a different value from the list of values.

But the system doesn't allow me to enter a value which is different from the one set on material level. How can I change this setting so that it allows me to change the value for certain batches?

      Be careful. By clicking them all on as default, your indicating in the batch that these are the values for the batch.

      So if your values are for packing materials:

      foam_peanuts

      rags

      newspaper

      It means that all three will be selected as values for the batch and all three are defaulted in as the right value for that batch.

      I would think you only want one actual value on the batch. Hence you default in the most common one and have users change the value to one of the others by exception using MSC2n.

    In the overwrite values screen for the characteristic in the class, select "additional values" tick box.
