    Hello Archie72

    Where is setup material code in your system?

    I think in ECC.

    Related to MDM

    Check your field material code

    (i think it has type text and unique)

    When you create new record some field (unique type) filled "new item", "new item2", ets. values.

    If you want to generate code for new materis automatically you should use somthing like calculated field properties

    more about that here(page 140):

    or create assignment

    in calcualted expression you can set rule for material code generation.

    more about assignmnet hele(page 44)

    For automatically start assignment for material code generation you should create simple workflow

    strart- >assignment->end

    and set launch mode as auto, immediatly.

    more about workflows here(page 285):

    after you create records - automatically launched workflow

    where your material code filled calculated value from assignment's calculated expression

    In additional

    you can use standart MDM key generation mechanism

    more about that here(page 360):
