How to extend existing material to multiple plants in MM17?

Hello, I'm trying to extend 1 material to multiple plants using MM17. This material is already created to 1 plant and I want to extend it to 1 more plant. How do I do it using MM17? The only data I need to change is profit center, because the profit center differs per plant. Please note that this is sample only. In reality, I would need to extend multiple materials to about 20 or more plants, so that's why I need to use MM17 and not MM01. Here's what I did. In MM17, I selected profit center in fields tab. I ticked "do not change existing data". In data records to be created tab, I entered the material no. and the plant where I want it to be extended to. For the reference, I entered the material no. again and the plant where it's currently extended. I input the profit center, and when I click save I'm getting error messages. If you notice the last error message, it says "material does not exist in plant 5168". Of course it doesn't exist yet, because that's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to create/extend it to plant 5168. Am I missing any steps? Please help. Thank you so much.

"material does not exist in plant 5168" is the last error, but nothing else than final statement based on earlier errors.

And the earlier error is "enter valuation class".

And this just means that some fields are not copied from your referenced material.

Read this blog, there is a section which explains the copy control for material master

An alternative to MM17 would be MMCC material master copier which is exactly defined for your purpose of material extension

Here is a blog about it
