Reset Flag MARC-XCHAR

Hi All,

For few materials in the system MARC-XCHAR (internal Batch Management Indicator) is set where as MARC-XCHPF (Batch Management requriement) is BLANK.

I am unable to trace the reason, Can you let me know importance of the same

and request you let me know the procedure & pre-requisites to deactivate MARC-XCHAR field.

Thanks in advance,

Nag

    • MM17 is just not possible as the field XCHAR is not among the changable fields (it is only among the fields for selection)

      It is an internal field that indicates that the material is to be managed in batches.

      A material is to be managed in batches for 2 reasons: batch managment requirement is set (field XCHPF)

      or split valuation without batch management requirement is chosen. In this case SAP creates still a batch. the batch number is then equal to the valuation type.

      You certainly cannot undo this unless you archive the material master valuation data.

      Further in SE38 for Report LMGD1I1U you can see SAPs explanation of this indicator, unfortunatly only in German language.

    I am not certain as I am not on a SAP system right now, but I think it has to do with split valuation.

    Please check whether your materials are subject to split valuation. Check BWTTY field in table MARC
