Mass maintenance for basic data text and units of measure

Hello gurus,

we would like to maintain basic data text for material masters using mass maintenance. Additionally, we would like to add an alternative unit of measure.

I am having trouble finding the correct fields for this in MM17. Could someone please help?

Thanks in advance

Alicia

    I think we MMAM to change material Type,

    For mass maintaince use MM17,

    Select Table MAKT in the first tab

    select field MAKTX in the second tab

    then continue process

    regarding the alternative Unit of measure, I don't know in whcih table/field we find it. Please check the technical information of this field. One you get the Table name and the field name

    repeat the same tasks as before

    regards

    Hi Jurgen,

    We mean by " bassic data text" the data maintained in the field MAKTX table MAKT ?

    If yes, I find these data with Tcode MM17. I have tested for two items. It is working !!

    As said, you select the table MAKT and the MAKTX

    execute or press F8

    Enter your list of items then execute

    copy the new list of description " from the Excel file" and past it in front of the item numbers, in the Column description.

    You don't need to supress the old texts, the will be supressed automatically.

    regards

    for adding additional alternative units you have to select table MARM.

    Long texts like basic data text cannot be updated with MM17 transaction.. you have to load it with LSMW or BDC or CATT
