Hello Gurus,

I have a requirement to extend a Material master data from one plant to another, I tried using Batch input recording in LSMW. I made the recording and started executing the mass upload, but i am getting an error message "while extending the plant data of reference material is not getting copied" instead of copying it is asking me to enter them manually.

Kindly find attached screen shot for your reference. Would request you to provide your suggestion on how to solve this issue.

Thanks & Regards,

Sanjay D

Have you tried using BAPIs as mentioned below:




There are multiple threads available in forum which you can refer.

Suggestion is to use BAPI instead of LSMW.

Thanks guys, i figured out what the issue was.

After completing the recording process the data that has been read by the system will be made as default, so to sort out this issue i deleted the fields after recording so that the system will not disturb those fields.

I hope Material description is different for different materials.

& purchasing view may not be there in the reference.

There is a T-Code in the standard for extending the views of the materiel master i.e. MM50.

Alternatively you can use that one.

Please find the thread for using the transaction.
