Dear Hanumanth

Not possible sir

Division is not an organizational unit in SAP in MMR while creating MM01

This means while doing MM01 after inputting material type and industry sector you have to give organizational data like Sales Org,PLANT,DIST CHANNEL ,WAREHOUSE ETC

You will not find division there as a organizational data

It is a field which is there in basic data 1 and sales org data 1 in MM01

Suppose if you change from div 01 to 02 in MM02 then the material belongs to 02 only

It will not exist in both

As per standard SAP a material cannot exist in more than 1 division

No way you can create a single material for 2 divisions or extend the material to 2 divisions

Moreover the division is under the basic data 1 directly under client and can be used across all organizational units like different SO's and Dc's and plants so that all in the logistics(sd,mm,pp) can use it

And the basic data of MMR cannot be changed easily

After seeing our elite friend AMITH's reply i still say


If you dont maintain division in sales org data 1 tab of MMR then the division from basic data will be taken by the system

Like a sales org is uniquely assigned to a company code in SAP the material is also division specific

If need be you can check with our MM friends

VOR2 will not be useful because it will not check MMRs

In VOR2 screen itself you can see it is for customers and conditions only there wont be materials mentioned in that img activity unlike VOR1 which is for customers,conditions and also materials
