Problem with Packaging Material Type

Hello all Gurus,

I have a problem with a packaging material type that I have created copying the standrad Packaging material type LEIH. I created a new packing material type ZPAC - Packaging Material copying LEIH.

I then created a new material master record using this new material type ZPAC.

When I am using this material for packing in outbound delivery document - VL01N, I am getting the following strange error message:

20333 does not have packaging material type and is therefore not a pack.mat.

Please suggest me why this error is coming and how I can rectify this error. Is there any further configuration that I need to do for packaging material types??? Kindly suggest.

Thanks and Regards,

Material type is not enough, you have to maintain proper master data as well as config.

At least please maintain value in MARA-VHART for the packaging material. Please also check these links how HUM works:
