"Material type HALB cannot be used with item category L (plant 1000)"

Hi Guys

I am trying to copy the BOM of a material.

The error msg.

"matrial type HALB cannot be used with item category L (plant 1000)"

Diagnosis: you want to enter a new componet with material type HALB and item category L.

Settings in IMG for production (master data> BOM > Item data > define item category) determine that inventory management for this item category is to be based on quantity.

However, other settings in the IMG for material HALB in plant 1000 determine that the quantities are not updated in the material master. This means that you cannot enter this material with item category L.

Can anyone tell me how to correct this error please.

Thanks.
