Entering material in customer order

Hi,

when I enter a material number into a customer order and the part does not exist in the parts database, SAP says: Material does not exist.

OK so far!

I'll open another session in which I create the part with MM01.

Then I come back to the still open order and enter the material once again.

SAP still says that material doesn't exist?!?!?

Why? Is there a workaround, because I don't want to always leave the order, create the part and come back to the order again!

Thanx for your help!!!

    I tried and system says: "Material xyz is not defined for sales org xxx, distr.chan. 02, language DE"

    Then I clicked on the delete button and item was deleted.

    Then I created the part in another session with MM01, coming back to my other session into the customer order, reentering the part (which now exists!) and it produces same error message!!!

    Magic, isn't it?

    When I leave the customer order and create a new, it let's me enter the part (material) without problems!!!

      Hi Wolfi,

      This is common with All the transaction codes. Example Go to VA01 and enter the material number. Open another session and go to MM02 and change the delivery plant for the material.

      Come back to first session delete the material and re-enter again it will still fecth the old plant.

      Even I wonder why it is so 😊

      Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Wolfi,

    I think it is not possible because it happens with all the transaction codes. It is standard due to Enque and DEQeque FM it seems.

    Seems that SAP is comparing the timestamps of modification of the order and material?

    For what reason ever!?
