Hi,

General Item Catagory Group: Your Company need to do materials grouping that helps the SAP system to determine item categories during sales document processing.

If you configured specific to distribution channel, it has priority if the corresponding activity is distribution channel-dependent.

Item Catagory Group: A grouping of materials that the system uses to determine item categories during the processing of sales documents.

The is that distribution channel added to General Item Catagory Group.

Hope helpful

Hi Buddi

Following information is available on net. See whether it helps u..

1. the General Item Category group (MARA-MTPOS_MARA) no longer serves any

purpose it was at general level

purpose, and that only Item Category Group (MVKE-MTPOS) is at sales

line (SO+ DC) level is used in the determination of item categories.

looks like SAP has changed the functionality of Item Category group,

general one is obselete now, just to support earlier SAP versions it

is continured

Thnx
