/SAPAPO/MAT1 Extra Tab Material Group Field not updated

In my SCM System in /SAPAPO/MAT1, we have Extra Tab with Extra Attributes "Material Group" Description. Now when in ECC material group is changed the material group changes in APO via CIF Run in Properties tab but the description maintained in Extra Tab is not updated.

What settings are required?

    Hi Nilesh,

    The material group in extras tab must have been customized by your team. /SAPAPO/SDP_MASTER is the BADI for defining free attributes. please chat the above BADI in your system for more details.

    As Visu has mentioned the material group that you see in extras tab is a freely defined attribute that was defined by someone in your company. If you want to populate that field with value of material group or some other value then you have to add custom logic in your material CIF user exit.

    To understand better , look at the field name for material group in properties tab and extras tab (F1 on field techical info ) . The fieldnames will be different - MATKL and AT * . To populate any field in extras tab you have to add custom logic in CIF user exit or you can do a manual update directly or use some mass maintenance program in APO to populate the field

    Thanks

      Nilesh,

      It is not a setting. The functionality whereby this field is being populated with Material Group description is created totally by your company. It is not sap standard. SAP SCM out of the box does not populate this field.

      Your company has created custom programming (userexit is normally used, but other methods are possible) to populate that field. You need to approach your ABAP team and ask them why the field is populated during 'initial' but not during 'change'.

      Best Regards,
