Material Group

Hi can anyone please explain me the meaning of material Group.

The reason is when I create a Blanket PO it is asking me for a material group ...

I understand that because it does not have a material master record(we are not using the material group even in material master)...now my client does not use any material groups ...now when they enter a description there ...saying Laptop ...how do I disable it ...I am not using a GR and doing MIRO directly ....so everything should go through ...

Thank you

Bassically mateiral group is used for reporting purpose and valuation purpose if you don't define the valuation class in material master

material Group can be used for authorization purpose also..

you can go to SPRO - MM- purchasing-Purchase order- define screen lauout

here make the entry for material group is optional for ME21N
