Hi, in this post I will show you some errors I encountered and solved when we had middleware errors when downloading SAP Material Master from SAP ECC into SAP CRM.
Error in Transfer of R/3 Materials
Via SMW01 monitoring you will see for the BDOC type PRODUCT_MAT several errors.
- Plant xxx is not assigned to any location
- Value xx is not permitted for attribute product group
Details of the error:
If you look at the product details in the erroneous Bdoc:
If you look at the product via transaction COMMPR01
The available entries for input for the field “Product Group” in the CRM system currently are:
The Customizing table in CRM for Price (product) groups is the following:
The customizing path is the following:
SAP IMG → Customer relationship Management → Basic Functions → Pricing → Pricing in the business transaction → Groupings → Define Price groups (for products)
If you look at the material in the R/3 system on the tab page “Sales: sales org 2” you will see that the material pricing group 51 is maintained.
Customizing path in R/3:
SAP IMG → Sales and Distribution → Basic Functions → Maintain Price-relevant Master data fields
→ Define Material Groups
The customizing table view is the following: V_T178
R/3 Table = T178
In order to know the customizing object we have to download, check the following in the CRM system:
→ Fill out table name = *T178*
Now that you know the Adapter object we have to download, launch the transaction R3AS.
You can monitor the download via transaction R3AM1.
The download was successfully.
Now you can check the CRM Customizing settings again.
The missing entries are now available.
You can now try to reprocess the faulty Bdocs for PRODUCT_MAT.
After reprocessing I still have some errors:
These however are other errors and will be treated in another blogpost.
