Empties Management

Hi All

I have a requirement from my client to activate the empties management solution for their gas bottles.

I have switched-on the EA-CP Component under Enterprise Extensions. I also activated Empties Management on on the SPRO under purchasing.

I went on and assigned the material type to the correct grouping for material number ranges. Now when I create a PO, I do not see anything that suggest that the material is for empties management (full/empty) or anything like that. What is it that is missing from my side to complete this requirement.

Please help, thank you in advance.

    Hi Jurgen

    Thank you for your prompt response.

    Yes, I have done the pre-requisite already but what I do not seem to find or figure is the field for the structure category S in the material master on the SPRO/Logistics - General/Material Master. I suspect that the field is hiden on the material master and wanted to activate it but not sure as to where is it sitting on the material views.

    Regards

    See this 11 year old discussion where it is explained and marked as right answer https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/629957

    was the first result in Google for this search term: structure category material master

    Hi Jurgen

    I tried that but the field Struct.Category (/BEV1/NESTRUCCAT) does not get shown on the screen.

    The only field shown is Lab/Office (LABOR) and the moment I make Field Selection Group 10 for Field Ref "VERP". The field Lab/Office becomes a required field and when I click on save, the system throws an error message that I must maintain the field Struct.Category which is nowhere to be found on the material views.

    How can I ensure that this field is part of the fields on the material view?
