Availability Check and alternative materials

Former Member

We want to be able to offer alternative materials if the material entered is not available or only partially available. We do not use APO or GATP.

We only want to do this when the materials entered is not available, (after the availability check) and an alternative is available so the user can then decide if they want to acccept the alternative.

Is there a way to do this without resorting to user exits?

Hi there,

Maintain the material determination. Give non availability as a reason for the swap.

But this would be automatic. In the requirement routine of the material determination you can choose to propose this only if the original material is not available. You can also code such that the system will throw a pop up message to ask you ifyou want to swap the item. If the user selects no, then it will not adopt the new item.

Check the requirement with the ABAPer sothat he can code it accordingly.

Hope this works
