Hi all,

I have maintained a material master record with plant specific material status. The plat specific material status is customized "L" = "STOCK".

When I maintain source list or create PR, I receive this warning message:


Material 59991524 has status "Stock" in plant M118

Message no. ME054


External procurement has not been defined for the material status of the material master record you entered.


  • You can continue your current processing.
  • Check the material status in the purchasing data of the material master record for correctness.
  • You can change the material status in the purchasing data of the material master record if you are authorized to do so. If you do not have the relevant authorization, inform the individual or section responsible for material master record maintenance.


May I know if there will be impact?

Check field "Plant-sp.matl status" in Purchasing view of Material Master it should be blank if you do not want to block material

01 Blocked for procment/whse

02 Blocked for task list/BOM

IN Insuranace item block

You've set the purchasing message as warning in OMS4 for status - stock. Thats the reason for this warning. This warning message doesn't have any impact in any purchasing transaction. you just ignore and proceed with all the purchase transaction.

check in OMS4 how the custom message is managed in different areas like purchasing, production, MRP, Inventory etc. A is warning and B is error
