Please enlighten.

    Hi Dhamane

    We have maintained several material types and one such is "PROJ" . But this material type has served its purpose and we do

    not want our user to accidentally create a material using this material type.

    We have more than 5000 users working on SAP spread across India and for the time being we do not want any of the users to create any material using this material type "PROJ"

    We may create a material using this material type in the near future as the situation demands.

    But right now we do not want any of the users to create any material using this material type "PROJ"

    So please suggest a way to block the material type in SAP

    Thanks

    Go to OMS2...double click on the material type you want to block....here maintain the Block reason in the field X-plant matl status

    or

    Enter a Authorization group like ZA01 (for example) in OMS2...now check with your BASIS person to use this authorization group from restricting the user using this material type

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Itu2019s not advisable to block material type. Flow this at critical cases.

    You can add an authorization group to the material type. An authorization can be added to the material type via transaction OMS2. Users who do not have authorization for M_MATE_MAR for the authorization group on that material type will not be able to maintain it in MM01.

    Hi Everyone

    Thanks one and all for responding.

    Since we wanted to block this material type for all users across all the plants and company codes, I think MR.Jürgen's suggestion would be the most appropriate for the given scenario.

    Thanks Once again
