I am changing base unit of measure of a material.

While changing system is giving one errro message i.e

Production orders already exist that are assigned to the material.

Plant Order no. Item

CL00 1003478 0001

When i checked this order in CO02. It is not a production order.

Then i checked this order in KKF3.

I come to know that it is a CO Production order.

I TECO that order. But still the same error message appeared.

Then i delete the entries from the table AUFK / AFPO / AFKO. then system allowd me to change the base unit of measure.

Can anybody tell me is there any other way to resolve the same problem.

Hi Amit,

If any stock of material is exist or PIR, any link with BOM, Routing,

In that case system will not allow you to change the base unit of measurment. You will get error massage in material master display error.

This is very crude way of doing the deletion (Deleting the Table entries directly)

Untill we delete the Orders from the System, you can not change the UOM.

So, you need to set the Deletion Flag and Archieve it and Delete from the System permanently.
