Field to update substitute items in material master.

Hi Team,

Is there any option in material master to update the list of substitute items for information only.  Based on the same, we can create a custom query to run the report list all the substitute items for a material.

Thanks for the advise.


you create a characteristic "submaterial" and allow multiple value assignment

you create a class in CL03, for class type 001 and assign the characteristic to it.

you maintain your material master classification view and add the class.

and here you add all your material numbers for submaterials to the characteristic

follow the steps in How to Assign an UNSPSC Code into Material Master in SAP without using any Enhancement
