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,
