Error MM326 when trying to change profit center for Material

Former Member

Hi,

The scenario is as below:

  • Our users want to change the profit reporting for certain materials
  • They want to change the profit center
  • Before trying to do this they have done the following:
    • Removed all stock for these materials
    • Either deleted POs or created invoices for remaining POs(no pending qty.)

Despite trying this , we are facing same issue.

Now I know that i can resolve this issue by changing the message for MM326 from "Error" to "Warning" in OMT4.

However, is there any note or document from SAP that endorses this approach ?

Is there any other alternative to change material profit center under this situation?

Thanks

Akash

first of all you should check if this MM326 message does not come because of a program bug,

see OSS note 1709285 - Incorrect output of message MM 326 for profit center change

In that case you would not need to change the message customizing.


In OSS note 160970 - Change valuation class: production order/purchase order

it is described for what reason the message is issued. The risk is always up to you if you decide to change the attributes of a message. You have to evaluate the given info with the situation in your system/with your local design. If you can organizational wise secure that you do not create inconsistencies after making it warning only.

Hi Jurgen,

  • I have already checked note 1709285 and ruled it out because it can't be implemented in our system.
  • Note 160970 does mention MM326 explicitly but does not go all the way to mention that it can be used for changing profit center too. I am not sure i can convince the client stakeholders with this.

I already got most of this info. from your previous posts. Thank you !

Really appreciate your valuable inputs


Not sure why SAP has not created an explanatory note on such an important topic.

Thanks

Issue resolved.

Asked SAP and they said if it is not possible to delete the POs we can go ahead according to note160970 .

Hi,

  By changing the message type to warning the issue will not be resolved but there will be inconsistency as suggested by Jurgen. Kindly check for All the Open documents that is linked to the Material.
