Multilevel BOM ISSUE

Hi Experts,

While I was trying to create a Multilevel BOM I faced the below problem .

Suppose I have created a material "A" that have two components material "1" and material "2".This material A exploded correctly when I created a sales order,which was initially single level.

Now I tried multilevel BOM ,in which I made the material "1" consisting of two sub components "x" and "y". Now I want in my sales order material "A" to explode with "1" and "2" and material "1" to explode with "x" and "y".

While trying to do this I faced a error while trying to explode material "A" saying "No item Category For Component 1(T184:1) Error Code :V1617.

I have marked the structure scope field of tab Bill of materials as "B" for TAP,TAQ,TAN,TAE.

I have also maintained item categories assignments  properly for my sales order which is AOR.

Please guide.

    Hi, ritu

    are you doing BOM with ERLA or LUMF.

    1.please see the below assingnments for ERLA.

    OR    ERLA      -        -        TAQ  (this is for main item)

    OR    ERLA      -      TAQ    TAE  (this is sub item for main iotem but this is also actas the main item)

    OR   NORM     -      TAE     TAE (this is for sub item for above assignment) 

    so, you will put the structure scope in TAQ and the statistical value put in TAE

    after these assignments ,you verify ERLA is present in materials.

    same like that in LUMF ,

    OR     LUMF      -       -           TAP

    OR     LUMF      -       TAP      TAN

    OR     ZORM      -       TAN      TAE

    please verify the strcture scope in TAP and  in TAE statistical value

    after you will verify and you will getting that error .please send the screen shots.

    • Hi,

      Goto CS02- enter your Main material i.e.1667, plant, BoM usage-& enter.

      In overview screen, select line item: 1669 & click on "Sub items" button , add components of this item i.e. 1670 & save. ( note: Assume you already maintained BoM master data for material 1669)

      It works now, 1669 will explode with 1670.

    If you are ok with the configuration which you has done have a look into your sales order type(VOV8)

    Here display range should be UALL (All items). Can you confirm this one also. Check and revert.
