Suppress Standard SAP Material Types

Post by Gladiator » Tue Mar 30, 2010 9:13 pm

Hi,

I am basically an ABAP guy doing some research on MM. I have created custom Material Types (copied from Standard SAP Types) and now I would like to suppress Standard Material types to be invisible for users. How to achieve this? I did not see any option for this in Customizing for Material Types.

Best Regards,
Gladiator.

Hi,

When you create your new material type in OMS2 transaction, it is impossible for you to suppress such material type when end users search for it.

Cheers,

HT,

Thank you. You mean to say we can not suppress Standard SAP Material Types? Is there any way we can restrict users from creating Materials using Standard SAP Material Types? One way is we can take out Number Range. Is there any other way?

Best Regards,
Gladiator.

Best Regards,
If the valuation class has been defined as mandatory for your related material type, then you will remove all valuation classes assignment to your account reference category via OMSK transaction. This account reference category is the one which is assigned to your material type in OMS2 transaction.

Isn't this what Security & Authorizations is designed to do? I'm sure there's an Authorization Object for MATERIAL TYPE.

Hi Bear,

Yes, you can also use the related authorization object to control the maintenance of your material master record for a particular material type.

Of course, the possible Material Types would still show in the drop-downs to the Users, they just wouldn't be able to create materials using them.
