Reg. ERROR in BOM Creation

0 Kudos

Hi all,

I am Facing the Error - Material Type HALB Cannot be used with item category L for Plant(xxxx).

I created one Finshed Goods,Semi Finshed goods,Raw material in the material master.

Then i want to create Multilevel Bom i.e.

To Produce 1 No.of Semifinshed goods - 5kg of Raw material needed.

To produce 1 No. of Finished Goods - 1 No. of Semi Fin Goods Needed.

While i was creating the first Level I.e 1no. of semi fin = 5 Kg of Raw Mtl.I faced a error Item Category L is not supported.Then I changed the Item category to N that is non stock item.So that system allowed me to save.

When i was creating the second level of BOM i.e.,1 No. of fin goods = 1 no. of semi fin goods.

the system throws the error message mentioned above.

Whats the solution for this.

Thanks in advance,

Dear Badri,

Check in T Code OMS2,for the material type HALB and ROH for your valuation area,whether the

quantity /value updating is done or not.

Select the material type & valuation area and double click on quantity/value updating and include the

check boxes.

You need to assign HALB in to T-code OS24. Actually in this configuration we need to assin what are the material types can be allowed in BOM header. Normally standard SAP configuration will be as BOM usage = * and the material type header = *, allowed = +.

If this configuration exist in your system means the system should allow you to create HALB as a header.

Check this in your system.
