    Hi Richa,

    Are these materials part of a BOM in the sales order.

    If yes, then please check the following information:

    When using BOMs it is not allowed to change the plant of the main item.

    This is the standard design of the system. This restriction is in the

    system because the BOM is defined plant dependant. If the plant could be

    changed on the main item after BOM explosion it could lead to

    inconsistencies in the system. The already created items might not

    correspond to the definition of the BOM.

    Due to this, changing the plant on the main item is not allowed. But you

    still can change the plant of the subitems, because the composition of

    the BOM would not change due to this. Single subitems can be taken from

    different plants.

    Regards,

    Raghavendra

    Apart from what Raghavendra Sir suggested.

    You can also refer following SAP Notes, if your problem still persists:

    - Note 409995 - Plant cannot be changed via fast change - V1236

    - Note 193196 - Message V1236 during fast change of the plant

    - Note 570986 - Plant change in the order for assigned purchase orders

    Regards

    Hi,

    You might have specified the delivering plant for the material and customer so that it is not allowing you to change the plant other

    that what you specified.Check in CMIR,CMR and MMR if maintained make that field blank and try.
