Batch Management cannot be activated

Hi,

Its just not another Batch management activation issue. I read through the earlier posts without much help.

I'm creating a 'New' material and after entering all information in MM01. When I tick 'Batch Management Indicator' in either purchasing or plant/storage view, I get display error which reads 'Batch management may not be defined for value only materials'.

The material type used is spare parts and in OMS2 it uses both Quantity/Value updating. Valuation category is blank in accounting view. The material type is not semi-finished or finished goods. I have checked all the batch management config in Logistics general-->batch management and it appears fine.

What can be the possible reasons for the error?

Regards,

M B

    SAP says in the message 'Batch management may not be defined for value only materials' that your material type is customized as value only material.

    Which means that your material type ERSA has no quantity update in the plant you are using.

    Go back to OMS2 and check if you really have the radio button set for quantity update in your plant.

    Hi,

    Please check once in 0MS2 whether the quantity update in your plant or not.

    Hi MB,

    Its a simple Logic that if the material stocks aren't quantity updated how can you have stocks for the materials? No stocks No batch. If you have configured wrongly for value only then change the same in OMS2.

    The material which were created before the changes in the material type will not be under the quantity update. Please create the new material and you will be able to create the batches without error. Hope this helps.
