Hi,

If you need this identification all the way in the system, then you need to use batch management. With batches you can separate and identify different groups of materials that have the same material number.

Please be careful before you actualy do it, because it has a lot of impact and is not reversible (for a certain material).

Mario

Hi,

You can also maintain EAN (European Article Number) for this in Additional Data of Material Master.

Hi,

U can use vendor material no. at the time of PO , u can assign vendor material number and the same will carry to GR and u can track the material based on vendor material no.

Hi,

Also u can maintain vendor material number in info record, so that it will be carried to PO during PO creation.

u can maintain vendor material number same as vendor code , so that it will be easy to track, as u might be familiar with vendor code.

Or if vendor is giving the material with some code , then u can maintain the same.
