Using the report : RVBCONVMAT2BM
Dear Experts ,
We want to active shelf life management in the material masters for @ 2000 items. For this the pre-requisit is to activate the batch for all these items. Since we have already stocks & material documents existing for these materials , we wanted to use report : RVBCONVMAT2BM (Sets the batch management requirement indicator) . But unfortunately we did not qualify for 2 pre-requisits mentioned to use this report i.e
1. R/3 system should not be integrated with other industry solution
( But we are on industry solution MIMI ( mining & mills)
2. R/3 system should not be linked with components such as APO.
( But we are also integrated with APO)
We have no idea of implication, if we use the above report in these conditions . If we want to activate the batch management for the existing aterial we have clear all the stocks & docs for all these material , which needs plenty of efforts & correctness. the other solution is to create new material masters & activate the batch management , but we will be losing the track of all movement history ( & procurement history).
can you please suggest , what should be the most appropriate route we should follow in this situation.
(Can we link the histories of existing material in the new material , if we have to create new maerial masters). Kindly advice
Thanks & Regards,
Materials Management Systems Analyst
