BOM copying


I have a requirement to create a SO by copying another SO type.

And when i try to create a new SO by copying a saved SO, i get this message "Item (xxx) is a component of a bill of material so cannot be copied"

The material is an assortment material. The header data has got copied, but some data in the item has not got copied to the new SO.

(this is line item xxx)

In SO to SO copy control, for the line item copy control i enabled "Reexplode structure / free goods"

This was enabled only for the header material line item and not the component material line item.

Diagnosis of message

Item 000020 of document 57104 is a component of a bill of material that, according to Customizing, needs to be re-exploded. Therefore, the system does not copy it.

Thanks in advance
