Converting Open Sales Orders after MM data changes


We are 'upgrading' a live v4.7 system to now use MRP. We have many open Contracts/Sales Orders with the affected materials. We are looking for a way to have SAP 'recalculate' or 'reload' the material master and VC data for these open orders without having to create new contracts/orders. There are absolutely no changes to the data entered into the contract/order. But because the orders were created with the old material master information they will not generate the MRP requirements unless we go into each order and cancel the line item and re-enter it into the order. This would be a significant amount of work to do either manually or writing a program to create new orders based on the existing orders.

Anyone know of a method or tool that will force SAP to reload the MM/VC config information into these existing open orders?

I would think this is a common issue for SAP upgrades where the new system turns on MRP.

Any help is greatly appreciated and good answers will get points.

    hello, friend.

    i will still research the subject. but the first thing that comes into my mind is t-code VA05. with this, you have the option to change the Plant en masse. so a possible workaround is for you to list a number of sales orders using VA05. you then sort the line items by Plant. choose all items with the same plant, change the plant via mass change... then change back to the original plant. hopefully, the new settings should apply.

    do test a few sales orders by doing this for a larger scope.
