Hello,

One of my client is using a material as template to extend existing materials (FERT material type). Problem in MM01; when we select a material and use a template material as reference material and select Plant view only, then save, system changes basic view data of the material which we want to extend. But we do not select basic view when extending the material. Why do the values in basic view also changes? any ideas?

Hi,

It is due to client specific data in plant view example Various unit of Measure. As system Record all Client level data (Mara) in Basic view even it is available in different views, changes are getting recorded in basic view.

Thanks and Regards,

Which values are changing? When you extend a material then you can usually not access a screen that is already maintained, hence you can't usually change and create at the same time.

The fields that are being replaced are net weight, gross weight, size/dimensions, old material number..

There is an OSS note with a bug fix: 1326257 - MM01: UoM copied when you create manufacturer part

Not sure if this exactly matches with your problem but it could have some relation.

There is also another note 492685 which also fixes an issue with overwriting existing data by using a template.

Both notes actually convince me that the effect that you see is probably a malfunction.

Thanks for the info but those OSS notes are for old releases. Both OSS note can not be implemented.

I did not say that the notes should be implemented unseen, I mentioned them as reference and evidence that is probably a SAP bug which you found.

Make sure that you also check user exits and Badis which could eventually alter the standard and cause your issue before you report it as bug to SAP Support for a solution.

Wonder why you at all have an old material in a template.

Hi,

Ensure that the 'propose field content' check box is flagged in OMSR transaction for the fields you are facing issues. Flag the check box highlighted in the screenshot and test the scenario again and revert back.
