MATERIAL MASTER DESCRIPTION CHANGED

HI ALL,

WE ARE MAINTAINING MATERIAL MASTER IN OUR PLANT.

RECENTLY ONE OF MY USER IS CREATED A PR AND CHANGED THE MATERIAL DESCRIPTION IN "ITEM LEVEL/MATERIAL DATA/SHORT TEXT".

THEN SYSTEM ALLOWS HIM TO DO THE SAME.

THE VALUTION OF THAT ORIGINAL MATERIAL AND MATERIAL INDENTED BY HIM IS VARIED ALOT .

EVEN THOUGH THE USER KNOWS THAT ANY NEW AND ADDITIONAL TEXT SHOULD WRITE IN ITEM TEXT ONLY HE IS DEVIATED THIS.

IN THIS CONTEXT ..HOW TO RESTRICT SUCH CASES FOR UN ALLLOWING THESE USERS FOR CHANGING ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION OF MATERIALS (THAT 40 DIGIT ORGINAL DESCRIPTION) WHILE CREATING PR'S.

PLEASE HELP ME IN THIS REGARD.

POINTS AWARDED IF HELPFUL.

THANKS AND REGARDS,

NAAGSEKHAR

    First of All Never Post the Thread in Capital Letters / Upper Case. It is Very Difficult to read.

    Go to SPRO-MM-Purchasing-Purchase Requisition - Define Documents Types and Identify the Field Selection Screen assigned to PR Doc type.

    Now Go to Define Screen Layout at Document Level and Select the Field Selection Screen and in Basic data, ITem Tab Change the Short Text Field to Display and save

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Go to SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Purchase Requisition > Define Screen Layout at Document Level > Here for field selection key PT0B, under "Basic data, item", mark field "Short text" as Display.

      Hi,

      setting the field as "display only" is a good option. But as u rightly said, then you will not be able to order materials without material code.

      So , whether the solution suits you depends on whether you practice ordering w/o material code or not.

      There can be one more way. You can use "Transaction variant" (T code SHD0). In this route, you can even make the field 'display only' for the errant users also. Others can order w/o material code.

    go to sprommpurchasing-purchase requisition-define document types--->here check the Field selection key against the document type u r using,normally it is NBB.

    now go to sprommpurchasing-purchase requisition-define screen layout at document level--double click on NBB-double click on basic data,item-->here make short text as display from optional entry--save

    regards,
