Change Batch Management Flag in Material Master

TCode : MM17
Select General Material Data     MARA
Enter Material Number
Click on Select Fields Icon above New Values under General Material Data tab
Choose "Batch Management"
Check/Uncheck Flag for Batch Management & Save

Hi there,
Besides the note 30656 , there are two important points to be take into your consideration:
1) If you want to change the batch management, it is not enough to check for stock. You must also reorganize all existing batches for the material. You can do this using the TA MM73 and MM74 or SARA. After you have reorganized the batches you should be able to change the batch management. The Object to use in the txn SARA is MM_SPSTOCK. You must first set the deletion flag for the batch using txn MCH2.
2) If you have defined the batch level in the TA OMCE to 'unique at material level', it is not possible to turn off the batch management flag in one plant. You can can only turn it off for all plants at the same time. That means if you want to turn it off, the system checks all plants for the existence of stock. In other words, the batch management flag will be the same for all plants at any time if you use the batch level 'unique at material level'.
Hope this helps!

  • Changing Batch Management Level from Material to Plant

    Hi all,
    We are investigating changing our batch management level from material to plant to meet business requirements.
    SAP has pointed us to a note with a program to reset the batch level, as well as highlighting some things to look out for.
    I've conducted the change in a playpen system and so far it looks relatively straightforward, with complexities arising only when characteristics exist, or when a batch exists in multiple plants.
    Seems that batch master data is moved from MCH1 to MCHA, including the object link number to classification. Unfortunately it seems a limitation of the conversion is that the batch master data is copied to ONE plant only in MCHA, no doubt due to the fact the object number link to classification must be unique.
    My question is this: has anyone performed this change before, and if so can you offer me any advice on what to look out for, or potential problems that arose after the change?
    Any help or comments are appreciated.

    first of all try this simple one...
    You will have to delete all the materials, remove stock and then switch the batch management flag.
    To convert the batch from plant level to material there is Conversion Program defind by the SAP...
    1. For all releases lower than Release 4.5B, implement the corrections and the modification in the report RM07CHDX as described in the correction instructions.
    2. Create the report ZCHTCUCH, which is specified in the attachment.
    3. Run this report in the clients for which you want to reset batch level to plant level.
    4. Call transaction OMCT.
    5. Check whether the batch level for "Batch unique at plant level" is set.
    6. Implement Notes 821891, 944278, 950540 and 1091613 if you have not already done so (or you have not imported the corresponding Support Package).
    7. Execute the function "Batch Level -> Conversion".
    8. Define a plant for a plant view that may be missing.
    9. Always execute the report in the test mode first. Analyze the error log.
    10. If no errors occur, you can execute the report in production mode.
    11. If you are working with batch long texts, first execute the report ZM07CHDX_TEXT in test mode.
    try this out..hope is works,,

  • Batch Management Indicator Required - Material Master

    My requirement -
    Batch management field has to be required for material Type "FERT"
    1) I created a new field selection group for the field "batch management" (MARA-XCHPF)
    2) Created a new Field Reference group with "Required" entry (OMS9)
    3) Assigned the New Field Reference to the material Type in OMS2
    The batch management Field is now a mandatory field.
    Issue is, when we try to create only the basic Data Views of a FERT material, system does not allow to save the material untill the "Batch Management Indicator" is activated (even if we are not referencing to any plant specific views of the material master.)
    We need to have the the Batch management indicator a required entry for FERT, but at the same time should be able to create material master with basic data Field only (we would be extending the plant specific views later)
    Is there a alternative method to have this setting to meet the requirements above?

    I think you can check if the batch level is defined on material or client now, if yes, you may check if that can be switched to plant level. As far as I knw the basic data is for client so the field is shown on basic data view and ask to input value as you customized.
    Alternatively, I think you can use the user exit MGA00001to check the field instead of the field selection, this is called when the material master get saved, then you can write your own source code to chec if the customer filled the  field only for certain situations.
    Best Regards.

  • Batch Management Flag on a Delivery Item

    I have an item in a delivery that has the "Batch Management Flag" marked on iten level (material tab and picking tab from delivery). That item doesn´t have a batch associed, then the incompletness log shows the message: "Batches / valuation types not completely allocated"
    I want to make a goods issue directly from the Storage location , without a batch, but the sistem doesn´t allows, even removing the "Batch Management flag" from LIPS-XCHPF.
    How can i make to clear the incompletness log for this delivery or make that delivery complete after removing the flag from LIPS-XCHPF?

    This Material doesn´t have a Batch associed to the Storage Location, because the Batch Management Flag in material master is not set. This is the problem, i need to make the goods issue directly from the storage location, without a Batch.
    I don´t know why this flag was set in delivery, it´s a closed field and it was set automatically.
    I try to clear this field in table LIPS field XCHPF, but even so the system shows the message in incompletness log of the Delivery and doesn´t allows do the goods issue.

  • Wants to activate batch management for a material which already had a Stock

    i want to activate batch management for a material which already has a stock and open Purchasing documents.
    is there any way by which we can do it without removing the same.
    please help.

    program name is RVBCONVMAT2BM
    but i am doubtfull it will be delivered with standard SAP, you need to request you from SAP as they charge for this.
    this program convert the material to batch and all relevant dependant documents will be updated with batch no.
    Pravin Mukkawar
    pasting  some description of the program
    REPORT rvbconvmat2bm.
    Report illustrates the call of function module VBZ0401_CONVERT_OBJECTS
    which sets the batch management flag for one material including
    depending objects. Function module VBZ0401_FILL_BUFFERS helps
    improving the performance.
    then logic......

    Please check this answered link:
    Batch-classification view
    If you want classify a batch, then you should have maintained the batch classification in material master which is either class 022 or class 023 (depends on your batch level set in cusotmizing). The material class 001 has no impact on the batch classifcition, it is what it is: a classification for the material.
