    Hi,

    If a material exists in the PO, the material group is not changeable

    any more with ME21N/ME22N. This is R/3 standard functionality.

    The field material group is not influenced by the field settings in

    customizing. The field is greyed out hardcoded for materials with a

    material master.

    The material group is used for linking to other tables and
    is being used to determine other values. In order to keep data
    consistent, it is not possible to make a standard change to program.

    The material group is pulled in from the material master so the standard
    way to change material group is to update the material master and then
    create a new line item. You can also consider to update the material
    group via BADI ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST. You can refer the BADI
    documentation (T-code : SE18) for more details.

    Best Regards,

    Arminda Jack
