Hello ,

I am getting error while control recipe creation when order is released.

the error message says "Value can not be assigned automatically to characteristics in process instruction and due to this no control recipe is generated for the order.

I have checked the customization for characteristics value assignment , it is maintained as automatic.

Please help me to know which other settings should i check to avoid this error.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Gurus,

I am displaying the components assigned to the phase in the PI sheet. I want to give PPPI_MATERIAL_ITEM against each component but it is not picking this characteristic automatically from the process order.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Best Regards

What is the chaerecteristics you are using? and message no?

In Customizing of message categories (Transaction O13C), define a message category for assigning values to characteristics

a) You can copy standard message category or use standard also also

b) Assign this characteristic to the destination-specific target field in process message destination .Please check the setting of O12C, O13C.

Also note if various characteristics such as PPPI_MATERIAL and PPPI_ACTIVITY exist in a process instruction, the sequences must be correct to assign values correctly to the PPPI_UNIT_OF_MEASURE characteristics.
