Limit material group by material type

Hello experts,

When creating a material by tcode mm01 I would like to limit the material groups by material type, as it happens with valuation class.

It is possible? How can I achieve this behaviour?

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,

JP

    There no direct link between material type and material group.

    You cannot restrict the display of material group by material type.

    Hi JP,

    You cant control this, since material groups are floating entities with no dependancies. You have to either create a screen variant in SHD0 (this doesnt support for a particular material type) or chk with your ABAPer to wrte a code to achieve this.

    Hi,

    Since there is no direct link between Material Type and Material Group in standard system it is not possible to restrict.

    However with custom development and enhancement you can work around a solution.

    Like, maintain all the material group in Z table and based on the Material Type selected you can allow/restrict the selection of Material Group.

    Thank you!
