Master data loading in terms of Inventory

Dear experts,

We have an requirement of implementing the inventory flow in bw system, we first want to check the complete process in the sandbox environment, as it is bit complex,

We are going for the business content.

1) Now for doing so what all Master data flows needs to be active and running specific to inventory management.

2) And what is the conversion exit been used for the 0material info object, in my system, when i install it gives other than ALPHA, some MATN1, which creates the problem, when i try to activate the datasource in the BW side after replication, it says the conversion exit MATN1 does not exist in the system.

3) Where can we check the existing conversion exit, and how to know whether they are active or not.

Thanks

    Hi,

    1) Now for doing so what all Master data flows needs to be active and running specific to inventory management.

    In ECC goto RSA5 and SAP >SAP-R/3 >MM-->MM-IO (Materials Management Master Data) and

    SAP >SAP-R/3 >LO->LO-IO (Logistics Master Data)

    Implement all MasterData.

    2) And what is the conversion exit been used for the 0material info object, in my system, when i install it gives other than ALPHA, some MATN1, which creates the problem, when i try to activate the datasource in the BW side after replication, it says the conversion exit MATN1 does not exist in the system.

    In InfoObject-->General tab you can see Convers. Rout.= MATN1, press F4 and then change it, go in Edit Mode.

    See the following program, and the same logic you can apply in Transfer Rules/Transformations. Take ABAPer help. Change the Code as per your requiremets, first copy and past this code in SE38 and see the result.

    REPORT  ZALPHA_INPUT.
     
    DATA: ZI(18) TYPE C,
          ZO(12) TYPE C.
     
     
    DATA: ZS(12) TYPE C,
          ZR(18) TYPE C.
     
          ZI = '000000099999889925'.
          ZS = '099999889925'.
     
      CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERSION_EXIT_ALPHA_INPUT'
        EXPORTING
          INPUT         = ZI
       IMPORTING
         OUTPUT        = ZO.
     
      CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERSION_EXIT_ALPHA_OUTPUT'
        EXPORTING
          INPUT         = ZS
       IMPORTING
         OUTPUT        =  ZR  .
     
    Write:/   ZI.
    Write:/   ZO.
     
    Write:/   ZS.
    Write:/   ZR.

    3) Where can we check the existing conversion exit, and how to know whether they are active or not.

    See above code, if you want to edit in Transfer Routinrs. Else change it in Edit Mode.

    Use OMSL Tcode and then give Material No. Length = 18 .

    Thanks

      yes syed,

      I am checking in BW,

      the flow for the 0Material_attr was already installed earliar, and the RFC to this new souce system was not developed, now it is done, but what i see is what you have stated, the conversion exit does not exist, which you mentioned,

      I would like to know how do i make it available,

      Is the Matn1 conversion exit comes as a standard one with the business content info object 0Material, as i never concentrated on this part earliar in my pervious experiences, i normally noticed alpha conversion

      The data source for the attribute material master was inactive,

      When i try to activate that ,,,,,it gives me that error

      Thanks
