Problem with ARTMAS idoc


I am working on an IS-Retail implementation and we deal with article master (similar to Material master). The idoc corresponding to this is ARTMAS.

The scenario is as explained below.

We have articles classified as 'generic' and 'variant'. One generic article can have many variants. eg. T-shirt can be a generic and its variants could be 'High neck', 'V-neck', 'round neck' etc.

The issue is : Whenever we make article master changes to the generic article and execute the tcode BD21 - idoc type for change pointers for ARTMAS, the articles whose info is changed triggers the outbound idoc which contains a segment ' E1BPE1MATHEAD' containing the details of generic and a number of segments 'E1BPE1AUSPRT' which contain the details of the variants associated with the generic,

When i changed any field in MM42 for a generic article, the idoc generated through BD21 contains the segments for variant articles also.

However, when the description field -MAKTX is changed for the generic article, the outbound idoc generated through BD21 does <u>NOT</u> contain the segment for the associated variants.

I need the outbound idoc to include the variant segments (E1BPE1AUSPRT) also when the Description of the Generic article is changed.

I have checked the table fields associated with ARTMAS and the field MARA-MAKTX is included in BD52.

Can someone throw some light on this.

Thanks in advance.
