Biswa,

Block from which activity(s)?

There are material blocks for sales type activities. In the Material Master (MM02), Sales org 1 tab, there is a field "x-distr chain status". In this field you can enter one of many possible status codes, each of which can represent a different combination of sales related activities that can be allowed/disallowed. If these codes are unsatisfactory, you can create new ones in configuration in OVSU.

There are also material blocks for procurement activities. In the Material master, Basic data 1 tab, find "X-plant material status". In this field, you can enter one of many possible codes, each of which can represent a different combination of procurement/production activities to be allowed/disallowed. Here too you can create new statuses, in OMS4

Setting the deletion flag, as mentioned in a previous post, also will prevent certain activities from being performed.

So, all in all, yes, you can block a material in many ways. However, you have to decide which ones, and then make the appropriate entries.
