How to Maintain the Material Type?

Configuring the Material Master Material Type:

OMS2 – Material Type Maintenance – Create/Change/Display


* transaction OMS2
* click Change
* key in the Material Type you want to change e.g. FERT then hit enter

The Views belows allows you to choose the Views for each Material Type.
(Press the Page up/Page Down keys to scroll the views)

If you tried to change from FERT to HAWA in 4.6x, you will receive an error message :-

The material type cannot be changed. This is not allowed if only external procurement is defined for the new material type, or if the new material type has a different account category reference than the old material type.

To overcome it, goto OMS2 and change the HAWA material type.

In the Internal/external purchase orders sections:

Original Changes
Ext. purchase orders 2 1
Int. purchase orders 0 1
