Block material for sales order entry in specific plants

Hi Experts,

I wanted to know if there is a simple way to block material from being ordered in a specific plant other than maintaining exclusions. My situation is one sales org, two plants (A & B). Order entry should be blocked at plant A and not B.

I tried using the material Cross-distribution-chain material status on Sales org 1, but this blocks across all plants.

I also tried Plant-Specific Material Status on purchasing view, this blocks the material only if it is being procured (non stock). This does not work for materials that does not require procurement. Setting the material to deletion status in MM06 at the plant level will only give a warning.

Any ideas or suggestions on how to handle this?

Thanks,

Nanda

      Lakshmipathi,

      Thank you. But I don't want to entirely cut off the plant from the sales org. I just don't want to be able to create sales order for a few materials in a specific plant. Ex. Material A should not be allowed on sales orders in plant X but should be allowed in plant Y, both are assigned to the same sales org 1000.

      I did some research and found there is no standard way to handle this in SAP, so I decided to go with a user exit MV45AFZZ. By checking against plant specific status (MARC-MMSTA) and if the value is 'XX' then issue an error message.

      Thanks,

      Nanda
