Hi Desai

suppose if we are selling a TV then the TV manual also has to go the customer that is text item TATX

In the item category determination in VOV4 for the sales doc type OR+item category group maintained as blank usage is TEXT item category of the highel level item nil For this combination the default item category would be TATX

That means thro usage program TEXT(ABAP program) system determines it is a text item and gives item category as tatx

The example of text item is TV manual

Generally for TEXT items we dont maintain MMR's but again this is business requirement only

If some business cases if it is reqd we can maintain MMR's for text items with a special material type and without any qty or value updation
