    I don't think you can - check with the MM guys. THe other option is to extend the material. Go to MM01, enter the material number, select the right industry sector, and then enter the material number again in the field Copy From Material

      I have checked material by MM01 and changed the Industry sector but it takes the old industry sector automatically.

      I have already created the Matcode and cant create the new Matcode.If some procedure can sort it out ,let me know.

    HI friend..

    Sorry . Its not possible to change the industry sector.You may have to recreate..

    Incase if you need to change the material type. Check with the Tcode MMAM... and change the material type..

    But make sure that you have not made any stock posting so far for that material..

    Thanks,

    Hi

    Industry Sectors

    Use

    When you create a material master record, you are required to classify the material according to

    industry sector and material type.

    Like material types, industry sectors have control functions in the R/3 System. For example, it is

    a factor determining the screen sequence and field selection [Page 97] in a material master

    record. Once you have assigned an industry sector to a material, you cannot change the industry

    sector again afterwards.CChheemmiiccaall iinndduussttrryy

    Features

    The standard R/3 System contains the following industry sectors. The ID used to identify the

    industry sector internally appears in parentheses.

    Plant engineering and construction (A)

    Chemical industry (C)

    Mechanical engineering (M)

    Pharmaceuticals (P)

    The other sectors are for retail.

    Activities

    Your system administrator can define other industry sectors in Customizing for the Material

    Master in Define Industry Sectors and Industry-Sector-Specific Field Selection [Ext.].

    This is MM tutorial notes

    Industru sector cannot be changed in std SAP

    Hi there,

    Changing the industry sector once you create the material is not possible.

    What you can try doing is go to MM01, give the material in copy from material & then give the correct industry sector.
