Hi,

It seems to me that this is the custom field which was appended to the standard EKPO table. Therefore, you should check with your ABAPer on this issue.

Cheers,

Although SAP generally recommends custom objects should start with Z, it supplies tables with standard fields starting with Z, of which this is one.
(Just goes to show, even clever people from Waldorf can put their pants on back to front and learn to live with it that way.....)

No matter. Generally, material master changes are NOT retrospectively replied to transactional documents already created with these elements as defaults. (After all, SAP cannot know whether the master data change is a change - to apply to new documents from now on, or a correction - to apply to any open document, old and new.) If the field is greyed out, I guess you'll have to cancel this line and create a replacement to pick up the new master data setting.
