It is very simple.

Enter MM01 t-code.

Enter your existing material code in field of reference material code.

If your material number range is external number range then enter number of material otherwise direct enter industry sector and material type.

After enter basic detail system ask you plant/storage location detail and view detail.

Select reference plant and storage location in left sight of diglog and enter plant and storage location in right sight of diglog screen for which you want to maintain material master.

Then click on all view, If you want to change some detail change it.

Due to reference material all detail is come from reference material.

Then click on save.

NOTE: - You can create new material with reference of old material but it is prerequest material type should be same of both material old and new.
