I am creating a configurable material with reference to an another material. The new material hav different class in classification view than the reference material and characterstics-values are also different. Now when i try to extend the newly created material in MRP views(MRP1 to MRP4) then in "plant-specific configuration" (MRP 3 view) , it shows the old material no. in "configurable material" field and accordingly when i click on "Configure variant" button on the same tab, then it show the Characterstic Value assignment of the old (Reference) material. This is causing inconsistency at Client level ("Basic Data 2" field have new material in "Client specific Configuration" and variant configuration according to the new class which is different from "plant-specific configuration") and Plant Level. Pls reply what can be done to fix this problem?
Waiting for your expert suggestion.
Thanks in Advance

In the new material, please untick the Cross-Plant CM. Now create a new material with reference to the old material. This will not happen.
Hope this helps. If you have any issues, pls lemme know
