MATMAS Inbound IDOC change overwriting numeric fields on material master to 0.00


Hi All,

We have an inbound MATMAS IDOC configured. During updates on existing materials, only some fields are populated in the IDOC. This is causing a problem for the numeric fields like the weight fields MARA-BRGEW/NTGEW and the volume/height/width fields if they are not sent in the IDOC. They are passed as '0.00' in the 'MATERIAL_MAINTAIN_DARK' FM and end up overwriting the existing values with '0.00'. For character fields, we are overcoming this by passing '/' if the field is empty, but not sure what to do for numeric fields. Kindly provide your valuable inputs.
