Hi Pushpendra,

What you can do is to store this data in vendor Master Class and  this  field will be stored in Purchase order while creation of Purchase order .

1 Create a  Characteristic and  Alphanumeric  and Assign  it to class( i,e vendor)

2 While creation of vendor you maitian EAN number in Characteristic in this filed

3 The value can also can populate in Purchase order  in vendor material number

Dear Pushpendra Nath,

My client is using SAP ECC and wants to work on EAN number.

The requirement is such as that for a single material they want different EAN no w.r.t different Vendor but with same unit of measure as they are receiving same material with different vendors in same unit of measure.

You can copy the same material to all different vendors with different descriptions so that you can give the different EAN numbers as per the vendors.

Like EAN category shown below:

I hope this may help you for your client.

Thanks

Hi,

In Article master, there is a facility to define multiple EAN to Article. EAN definition is done in Basic data and cannot be defined for a vendor. In Article master screen (MM42), click on Additional data button on the top and navigate to Additional EANs tab. There you can define multiple EAN for a same Unit of Measure. Please note that when there are multiple EANs, one of the EAN should be marked as Main EAN.

There is a provision to enter EAN for each Vendor article number. So for each vendor you define the Vendor article number and use this Vendor article number EAN assignment. This way you can distinguish EANs for vendors.

Please see the below image.

I hope this will help you.

Regards,

Amit

Thanks a lot for your reply.But my client is not using IS Retail solution,they are using standard SAP.

Is there any possible way to help in Standard SAP.

Hi,

   The same facility is available in standard SAP also. Go to MM02, click on additional data, go to additional EAN tab. I think vendor material number field is not available here. If you want, you can enter the same in info record.

Hi Amit

I have a similar requirement and we are working on IS Retail. I can see this field but this field is greyed out and I cannot enter the Vendor Article number. Please help.

Hi,

Please make sure that there are any Vendor article numbers are defined for your article in its Purchasing view. Purchasing view will be maintained for a combination of Purchasing organization and vendor. This is not a mandatory but still you will be able to relate within your article master.

For internally generated EANs, that field will be grayed, so when you assign make sure you fill all required columns (as shown in image) before you press enter.

Also note that you need to have external number range for Vendor EAN and when you define, you have to tick Vendor EAN check box as shown below.

I hope this will help.

Apologies for being thick but I have already maintained the purchasing view including the Vendor Article number. If I am in the change mode, the field is greyed out but when I create a new entry int he change mode I can enter the field however when I hit enter, its gone.

Also if I am in create status, the field is greyed out. I am sure I am missing something.

Please help.

Thanks

Vendor and material...maybe you can consider using Purchasing Info Record and put the "EAN" number in "Vendor Mat. No."?
