MDG-M: how to create several material description?

Hi folks!

I am new in this MDG stuf and I am creating a CR to create material using Governance API.

I could sucesfull create a CR with a lot of entities, like:



But I need to create this material with at least 3 diferent langues, English, Portuguese and Spanish, but this is a entity? I found this link and it's looks like an attribute of MATERIAL, but I do not undestand how this works.

Could somebody please help me?

    Hello Ronaldo,

    I am not quite sure what your query is.

    Are you able to enter description in 1 language e.g. English?

    If yes, then just in the same place enter the different language code like ES etc & then add the Material Description against it- just like you would in ECC transaction MM01.

    Is your query something different?

    Hello Ronaldo,

    The Language field does exist for Material Description also.

    Have you chceked SMT Mapping MDG_BS_MAT_MAP_2PP for Mapping Step MDG_BS_MAT_DESCRIPTION

    The field SPRAS is mapped against LANGU.

    Also while creating a material I am thus able to add descriptions in more than 1 language just like we can in MM01.

    So I am not sure what the issue is.

    • Hello Kavita, thank you again for the answer.

      Let me try another approach here.

      I will put the part of code where I'm put the values in the MATERIAL entity.

        move-corresponding <ls_mat_key> to <ls_mat_data>.
        assign component 'MBRSH' of structure <ls_mat_data> to <value>.
        <value> = t137-mbrsh.
        assign component 'MTART' of structure <ls_mat_data> to <value>.
        if sy-tcode = 'ZMDG001'.
          <value> = t134-mtart.
        elseif sy-tcode = 'ZMDG002'.
          <value> = zmdg_solalt-tpmat.
        assign component 'MEINS' of structure <ls_mat_data> to <value>.
        <value> = t006a-msehi.
        assign component 'MATKL' of structure <ls_mat_data> to <value>.
        <value> = t023-matkl.
        assign component 'TXTMI' of structure <ls_mat_data> to <value>.
        read table gti_idoma_act with key sprsl = 'S' into wa_idiomas.
        if sy-subrc is initial.
          <value> = wa_idiomas-maktg.
          clear wa_idiomas.
        insert <ls_mat_data> into table <lt_mat_data>.

      You can see in the code where I put the value into a TXTMI field, but, I need to put at least 3 descriptions like I said before.

      I found an structure that contains MATERIAL, LANGU, TXTMI and it's in cl_usmd_conv_som_gov_api=>gc_struct_key_txt_langu but since it is not an entity but it's part of a MATERIAL entity I believe, I cannot find a way to attach this into my entity. I'm doing everything via a Z module pool, I'm not using any standard tx.

      I hope I have explained myself in a better way.

      best regards
