creating material without material master record


Can u pls help to solve this scenario.

client is having MTO type Business Process.

They have to create a material which doesnt have material master record in quotation.(So we Can have text material).

But for that material we neeed to do costing , so i have activated EK02 in QT doct type.

So costiong is possible for normal material.

But for text material error comes as like.

*_Specify at least 1 unit__Message no. BM018*_


No unit was included. Conversion or determination of conversion factors is therefore not possible.

i would advice you to go by suggestion( option1)of Abhishek Singh. Create a service material and use it for quotation. In your copy controls make the necessary settings that material is not copied to sale order when you refer the same quotation, so that you can use FG.

another disadvantage of text item is , it doesn't appear in VA05.

Best Regards,
