subcontracting PO > component item category issue
I am facing the problem for my subcontracting component's line item.
Found an old discussion where SAP Notes 205454 were suggested and this discussion seems to be "answered".
For my case, my material component is registered with item category N.
When the it is used in subcon PO, item category is displayed as T instead of N.
From EKET table, I picked and used RSNUM to display item category in RESB table.
As a results, the item category for that particular component is displaying as L (??) instead of N which it should be the same as in CS03.
I am not sure what am i missing here.

not sure from which reply you got this wrong understanding.
N is non stock - try to do a movement for non-stock material in SAP, just from storage location to storage location, and you will know how much you can do with a non-stock material in inventory management. if you have nothing you cant move it.
Hence SAP is turning this N from your BoM to a text item in the subcontract PO. Because you have to deliver it physically to your contractor (..but not in SAP) otherwise your subcontractor could not fulfill your order.
