Restrict Change of Profit Center in Material Master


Please help me to fix the below issue.


Material 1, Plant A, Inventory 100 units

Material 2, Plant A, Inventory 150 units

All Material Master settings are similar for both Materials

The user was able to change Profit center without zeroing the Inventory for Material A and not able to change the Profit center for Material B (error message).


How the user was able to change Profit Center without zeroing the inventory for one Material and not for other Material (Settings for both Materials are same)


Restrict users to change the Profit center if inventory is not Zero.

Your help is much appreciated.




To my knowledge there is not any other field that impacts the profit center change.

but this message is customizable, are you certain it is an error for all users?

The system may issue message MM 335 as an error message or as a warning message, depending on the settings in the Customizing transaction OMT4.

furher there are 3 prerequisites for this message:

The new general ledger is active.

The profit center update is active in the new general ledger.

Notes 890251 and 1049285 are already implemented in your system.

of course do the prerequisites effect both materials, but I am thinking the other way around, if you have not fulfilled the prerequisites, then the error message may be issued by a bug
