Hello All,

I plan to replicate materials from ECC to CRM, the object to replicate materials is MATERIAL however do I need to replicate product hierarchies (DNL_PROD0) first or can materials be downloaded as standalone only?,

    Product hierarchy should be downloaded first. Please see the below prerequisite's for material download

    Before the initial download can take place, you must have:

    • Transferred Customizing for general settings (in particular, transferred the units of measure, languages, and countries, using middleware objects beginning with DNL_CUST_BASIS)
    • Transferred Customizing for organizational management (for example, transferred the sales offices)

      In Customizing for Customer Relationship Management, choose  Master Data  Organizational Management  Data Transfer  .

    • Transferred Customizing for sales (for example, transferred the product groups, using middleware object DNL_CUST_SPROD)
    • Defined the mapping of sales tax data from the SAP ERP to the SAP CRM format

      In Customizing for Customer Relationship Management, choose  Basic Functions  Taxes  Basic Settings  Tax Types and Tax Groups  Assign Tax Groups to SAP ERP Tax Classifications (Product)  .

    • Defined how the product ID is stored

      In Customizing for Cross-Application Components, choose  SAP Product  Basic Settings  Define Output Format and Storage Format of Product IDs  . We recommended that you use the same settings in both systems. See the documentation for this Customizing activity for more information.

    • Transferred the middleware object CUSTOMER
    • Transferred the following middleware objects for the class CUSTOMIZING:
      • DNL_CUST_PROD0

      • DNL_CUST_PROD1
      • DNL_CUST_PROD3

    For more information, see Initial Load of Customizing Objects (Solution Manager:  SAP CRM  Configuration Structures  SAP CRM  Basic Settings for SAP CRM  Data Replication  Replication of Customizing Objects  ).
