Material download issue due to Lexicographical setting mismatch in CRM &ECC

Hi All,

We are facing material download problem due to Lexicographical settings.

In ECC, 'Save Lexicographically' is checked and maintained. While in CRM it is not maintained.

Now, we have aroung 10,00,000 materials in production system, and now we are facing problem with numeric material with leading zeros in replication from ecc to crm.

Please suggest what should we do.

If we maintain the setting now in CRM, what will be the impact on existing material and transaction data in crm.

Any sap note, with which we can maintain same setting as of ECC in CRM, and earlier data will also be valid.

Please help.

    1. In CRM, the transaction COMCPRFORMAT ( for Defining Product ID Settings ) has the settings for 'Save Lexicographically' as inactive then....

    With nonlexicographical storage, the product IDs 123 and 0123 refer to the same product, that is, the leading zeros are meaningless. Both product numbers are stored in the database as 0000000000000000000000000000000000000123 and are thus identical.

    2. But if In R3, the corresponding transaction OMSL has the settings for 'Lexicographical' as active then these 2 products will be considered as seperate products....
