Error during material creation


Dear Experts ,

I am trying to create a material with KMAT material type & a particular industry sector .

but i am getting a message " Operation not possible (e.g. incorrect material type or plant)"

Message no. M3327


It is not possible to access the user department required because not all of the maintenance statuses have been entered for the plant in Customizing, and/or for the material type. For example, if the maintenance status D (material requirements planning) is missing for a plant, all MRP screens are deactivated for this plant.


Check the setting for the field Maintenance status in Customizing for the Material Master in Define reference for plant-specific field + screen selection. You can display the meaning of the maintenance statuses by displaying the possible entries.

How do i go about it ??
