Material Master Number Range - Very Urgent

Hi ,

My client is having existing material codification as below :

all material types for e.g. ROH, HALB, FERT will be starting their material code with 00 or 01 or 02 etc. sine the first two digits denotes the year , which will vary from material to material. The characters used will be from minimum 8 to maximum 14 - Alphanumeric.

for e.g. my material code will be

for ROH - 000040101F0101

for FERT - 00801000101

for HALB - 013000101C

here for all materail type first 2 digit are for year and next will be prod. code , then assy , then sub assy , if forging applicable it will be F , if casting then - C

How this can be mapped in SAP as one series for all material types, is it possible for system to identify the material type, what is advantage & disadvantage of the same.

Pl. help

Thanks & Regards,

Vikas Mayekar.

    Hi,

    It is not recommnaded to start material code with 00 or 01, for various material types, You can start the material code with 00 or 01 for ONLY ONE material type, since number range are assigned to a group in MMNR. In this group you will have to assign all material types, which will not have any control at the time of material creation. for e.g. your user want to create material code for material type ROH, but by mistake he has selected material type as FERT, in this case system will not have any check . System will create a code in FERT which will have impact on valuation class as well as other related fields.

    You can derive with any other logic, which can control on material type also.

    Hope this will help you.

    Hi

    Using Standard SAP for Material number ranges may not be able to map your requiremnts.

    But you can use the SAP enhancements available for the Number ranges determination & so onj...

    Please use the User exit in CMOD or SMOD

    You can use enhancement MGA00002 (for industry) or enhancement MGW00002 (for retail) for this.

    For more information, see the documentation for the following components assigned to these enhancements:

    Industry

    EXIT_SAPLMG02_001

    EXIT_SAPLMG02_002

    Retail

    EXIT_SAPLMG72_001

    With the exception of the transfer structure, this function is identical to customer enhancement MGA00002 for material number assignment for the material master for industry. Please see customer enhancement MGA00002 for more information and for sample coding.

    EXIT_SAPLMG72_002

    With the exception of the transfer structure, this function is identical to customer enhancement MGA00002 for material number assignment for the material master for industry. Please see customer enhancement MGA00002 for more information and for sample coding.

    EXIT_SAPLMGNK_003

    Please take help of ABAPer's for implementing the same

    Thanks & Regards
