Discontinuation indicator and follow up material.



I am facing the strange issue for which i need your expertise. The requirement is like:

1. "X" material is discontinued and "Y" is as follow-up in two plants A & B. Discontinaution group and follow-up group has also been assigned in the BOM.

2. Now The client want to reverse the settings . means "Y" should be discontinued and "X" should be follow-up in both plants A & B.

Now I have removed the discontinuation indicator and follow up material from "X" in both plants. But when I am going to discontinue the "Y" material and putting " X" as a follow-up material, The system is giving the message "The specified follow-up material results in recursiveness

Message no. M3609


You have entered a follow-up material. However, the BOM explosion for the follow-up material leads to the discontinued material, resulting in unpermissible recursiveness.


Enter another follow-up material or cancel the entry.

Please suggest me where I am missing in my settings and what is the reason for this message.
