Material Determination


Hello Everyone,

"You do not need a material master record for the material number that you are replacing".

I wish to confirm what actually does this statement mean :

Is it

1. When configuring material substitution of Material A with Material B, Material B, the material code, need not be created in the material master data .

or is it

2. When configuring material determination the entered material in the sales order need not be a material code that is already created in the material master data? For example,

I configure a Material Determination as follows:

Material Entered : Monitor99

Material : ATA99

Reason : Z99

Alternative Materials: ATA99, ATA88, ATA77

In the sales order, i enter Monitor99 as the material code and it will replace by ATA99?
