I'm working on an ERP implementation project and we are facing the following issue:
For reference, reporting and look-up purpose we would like to store the previous used material number from the legacy system in the field mara-bismt in the material master of SAP. Unfortunately we have thousands of legacy material numbers exceeding the field length of 18 characters defined for mara-bismt.
To shorten the original material number is not an option, also using the short text to keep this information is not suitable.
Does anyone of you face a similar situation? How, did you manage it?
Thanks for your help,
