Material listing an exclusion
I have a requirement from my company, where they want that a particular product to be sold to a particular dealer plus the dealer should also be able to buy other products also. If I try to do the material listing in combination of dealer and material, then the dealer is not able to buy other product. Please let me know, how that is possible. Can material group be used??

Which exact process you are trying to map - a certain material should be sold only to a specific customer or group of customers or if a customer or group of customers wishes to buy a specific material we may suggest him to buy also several other items?
The first process in SAP terms is listing/exclusion, the second is cross-selling.
In case you need to model the listing/exclusion process - the answer to your question is yes, you can set material listing/exclusion per material group.
You need to create a new condition table for listing/exclusion and assign it to the access sequence that you are goung to use for the listing process.
Material group is available as allowed field in the catalog. In case you need to to use additional criteria with fields that are not present there - e.g. MVGR1-MVGR5 or PRAT1-PRAT9 from MVKE, it is also possible, but you will need a developer to assist you.
The process of adding additional fields for listing/exclusion is very similar to how it is done for standard pricing conditions.
You also do not need to create all records per dealer/unless you really need to specify this per customer account - you can use fields such as customer group to simplify the maintenence.
Make sure that if you use different levels of determining the allowed materials to select the correct procedure for material listing - ' ', 'A', 'B' or 'C'.
