'Label Data' View in Material Master

Dear Team,

I am working on GLM project.

Can anybody convey me, how to update / maintain the 'Label Data' View of Material Master in GLM. Data like, Label Category, Label Size, Number of Label etc...

which is the most common method being used for Label Data view?

I have tried to use the LSMW - Recording Method for the same but not successful. Faced some of below issues

  • we select the Packaging Unit ( e.g. DR-Drum) and activate it. but in LSMW every time, it is activating DR - Drum only as recording done for DR. But if i do the recording for DR - Drum & BT - Bottle and then executing the LSMW, then always both the packaging unit is getting acitivated. Here my requiremet is that, some material has one packaging unit and some material has 2 packaging unit. how to do it?
  • After activating the packaging unit, some material has one label category details and some material has 2 label category deails. How to achive it.

Can anybody guide me on the same.

Thanking You

    Hi Amol,

    We have developped a specific program called by a specific transaction using a csv file with columns: material number, Primary pack unit, unit of measurement label category, label size, generation variant, number of label. From this csv our specific created a batch input to update the view label data of material master. With this csv file you can manage several label category for a same packaging unit by material (1 line by label category).

    With this specific program we can create, update or delete view label data.

      HI Amol,

      Best thing is to develop a custom program. we too have done the same.

      Input parameters would be....


      Packing Unit

      Label Categ

      Generation Variant

      Label Size

      No. of Labels

      Validity Area 1

      Validity Area 2

      Validity Area 3

      Material From.................To.................


      In the Last field "Material From - .*........... (Should select the *)

      at To the Multiple selection

      Here it is designed with "Import from Text File".

      By selecting that you can upload the Material data from your desktop, available in Text file.

      Revert me, still you have any questions on this.
