Condition for Inbound MATMAS Idoc


Today we are receiving Idocs with Material Master data. IF the Material does not exist in SAP, it is created, otherwise, it is updated.

Is there any way of only create the Material and if it does exist, do nothing? Do I have to copy FM IDOC_INPUT_MATMAS01 and do this myself or there is a way of achieving this by Customizing?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Ernesto,

    How are you receiving the data to create the IDocs?

    Pardon me for pointing out the obvious solution, but if you are receiving the data in a flat file, then pre-process the flat file first. With each record in the flat file, check if the material number already exists in MARA. If the material already exists, then delete it from the flat file. Use the filtered file to create your IDocs.

    Kind Regards,

    Rae Ellen Woytowiez
