Field /SAPAPO/MARM-GEWEI unit missing for product 000000008660000814 PAL

Hi Experts,

I found CIF error in SMQ2. The error states "Field /SAPAPO/MARM-GEWEI unit missing for product 000000008660000814 PAL '.

I checked the data in MM03 , where alternate unit of measure is PAL. One PAL Is 96000 EA.and i found GRoss Weight and NET Weight is showing Zero.

I checked the same in /sapapo/mat1 , it is showing 1PAL = 5760 ea.and i found GRoss Weight(2, 078.440 and NET Weight(1,800.32) .

How to rectify thsi error. Please let me know.

Thanks,

Manasa.

    You can try to delete the queue and then send the material to APO again using initial transfer (using RIMODINI program).

    Hi Rishi,

    Thanks. Please check teh OSS Notes Note 1519355 - Field /SAPAPO/MARM-GEWEI unit missing for product and advice me.I am pasting the same notes below.

    Summary

    Symptom

    Field /SAPAPO/MARM-GEWEI unit missing for product

    Other terms

    /SAPAPO/MAT067, UOM

    Reason and Prerequisites

    The reason of the error is, that the 'Unit of Weight' is missing for the alternative unit of measure(UOM) in the material Master Data.

    Solution

    From R/3 perspective,

    If no gross or net weight is maintained in a unit of measure, it is not nessesary to maintain a unit of weight. However CIF in APO checks the field GEWEI for all entries of table MARM. If the field GEWEI is blank in any of the MARM entries then you will get the error message . The following are ways to correct this error;

    1) Delete the alternative UoM in APO for the product in /sapapo/mat1. Afterwards process the faulty queue and all alternative UOMs will be correctly available in APO and thus, the masterdata is consistent.

    2) Maintain the 'Unit of Weight' that is missing for the alternative units in the material masterdata in R/3. Afterwards retransfer the masterdata to APO.

    3)use the userexit EXIT_SAPLCMAT_001 (where you can change

    MARM and MARMX values) and maintain the missing 'Unit of Weight'so that MARM-GEWEI is filled before transfering the masterdata to APO.

      Hi

      We have encountered this issue a no of times in the past. We used to delete this Alternate UOM from Product Master in SAP APO, and then reprocess the queue. Ideal approach could be option 2 - because a material should have some positive weight maintained in MARM Table in R/3. Due to some issues, we could not achieve that. I would suggest you check table MARM for any such entries and make correction. Else this issue would pop-up when Material Master Integration Model are activated during nightly Batch Job.

      What we had adopted finally is option 3 - we have implemented the user exit so as to avoid frequent batch job failure.

      Thanks,
