material in active
Please advise how to make a material inactive for new customer orders.
We stopped producing this material two years ago. There is still a small amount of inventory on hand which weu2019re trying to sell off, but in the meantime we cannot accept any new customer orders.
The end users donu2019t always know whether a material is inactive u2013 we need a system message or status message to prevent end users accepting customer orders
Create Sales Status in SPRO > Logistics - General > Material Master > Settings for Key Fields > Data Relevant to Sales and Distribution > Define Sales Statuses > Here you can put blocks in following;
Block for order
And use this key in Material master Sales: Sales org 1 view, in field
X-distr.chain status (If you want to block it for sales for all distribution chains.)OR
DChain-spec. status (if only for the specific dist. cahin)
