material discontinuation using MRP tab 4 of material master


Dear Gurus,

I am facing a problem regarding material discontinuation using MRP tab 4. I have an old material which has to be discontinued at a future instance. For the same I have made a new material which is supposed to replace this old material. The base UOM of both material are same only the material type is different. For the same I have in the old material master data maintained the discontinuation indicator as 1, given a discontinuation date and follow up material. I have also maintained the rest of the MRP settings for the new material similer to the old one. In real sense on doing so after the discontinuation date when i run MRP using MD03/MD04 i am supposed to get the discontinuation date, which I am but for the new PR made after this date the old material should be replaced by new material. in my case this is not happening and even on zero stock of old material for the new procurement the MRP is running for the old material insted of the new one.

Please help
