Change in Material type not allowed

Dear All,

We are facing problem in change material type from Promotional goods (valuation class- 9000) to finished good (valuation class - 7920). Encountered the error production order already exist for the material.

Existing scenario: Material with valuation class 7920(Valuation class changed with Z t code from 9000 to 7920)

Production order:

1. One order with Order type PP01 - Status u2013 TECO (Not confirmed) u2013 Not appearing in the error message

2. Two order with Order type PP04 u2013 Status u2013 CLSD (Not confirmed) u2013 Appearing in the error message

Now when we are trying to change the material type using t code MMAM, we encountered the error message that production order already exists for the material and display the production order with order type PP04.

Added to the details:

PP01- Settlement rule assigned is against material

PP04 u2013 Settlement rule assigned is against G/L

Please help me to change the material type for the material.

Thanks in advance

Regards

JDB

    Hi Jayant,

    Request you to check the below points before changing the material type.

    1.If you use the material ledger, the material must be settled in it.

    2. If the old material type did not require you to specify a price control (for example, standard price or moving average price) for the material, the new material type must not be configured such that it allows only standard price as the price control.

    3. If the material has been maintained from the Production Resources/Tools view, this view must also be allowed for the new

    material type. If the material is not a configurable material, the new material type must not be allowed only for configurable materials.

    4.In Customizing for the Material Master (in Define Attributes of Material Types), the following indicators must have the same setting for the old material type and for the new material type:

    Material for process indicator

    Manufacturer part indicator

    5.If inspection plans are required for quality management inspection of the material, they must be allowed for the new material type.The Material type ID indicator (presently used only in Retail) must be the same for the old material type and for the new material type.

    6.If the material is already in stock, or if reservations or purchasing documents exist for it, the following conditions must also be met:

    The stock values of the material of the new material type must be updated in the same G/L account as the stock values of the material of the old material type.

    Quantities and values of the material of the new material type must be updated in exactly the same way in all plants as quantities and values of the material of the old material type.

    7.If there is a transfer requirement for the material and if quants of the material exist, the new material type must also allow the material data to be maintained from the Warehouse Management view.

    8.If the material, whose material type you want to change, was handled in batches and if, due to the maintenance statuses of the new material type, the material can no longer be handled in batches, although batches still exist, you cannot change the material type.

    Thanks,
