Problem Changing MRP Type Per MRP Area

Hello PP gurus,

I'm trying to implement "Planning Time Fence" to be able to automatically "firm" planned orders falling within the time fence. I have gone into Material Master Record and used MRP Type P1 under MRP View 1 (see image below) to be able to use firming. However, when I use MD04 to look at Stock Requirements List for this item, I get/see the MRP type "PD" (see second image below). I assume that there is a link/table that connects MRP Type with either the MRP Area or at Plant Level and that link/table overrides what I entered in Material Master Record.

My question is: How do I maintain the MRP Type at the MRP Area or Plant level? What's the path or Transaction Code I should use? If I can maintain this setting, my problem would be solved. I will gladly reward points for helpful/correct answers.
