    As per my understanding,You cannot find material based on item category..

    In a sales order item category determines based on the item category determination procedure

    Sales doc type+item category+higher lev Itemcategory+item cat Usage

    Once any transaction happened like sale order.Then you can find the item category of material in that sales order.

      Hi Siddiq,

      As rightly mentioned other experts and you VBAP is the table for this.

      What you can do is to create a custom table and a program to populate the table from standard, table should have only desired fields and get the same populated from standard tables.

      Now provide a selection screen before running the report, which will be having item category as input field.

      This is the only workaround for giving users what they want in your case or else you can convince them otherwise for scrapping this requirement altogether 😊
