SAP mass change Material Master

It is often useful – but dangerous – to update one or more values of several materials at the same time.

This manipulation is pretty easy to perform in SAP, maybe too much, use these information carefully, and always double check that the system is the right one, and that the data is accurate.

MASS transaction in SAP

First of all, go in the MASS transaction, and choose the type of data to update.

For example, enter BUS1001 in MASS for Materials (industry) (Fig 1), which is the Material Master (transaction MM02).

SAP MM17 step by step

You then enter the tables selection screen (Fig 2) that you would like to update. Check the ones that you want, and go in the material master field selection SAP tab (Fig 3) in which you want to modify the actual value.

Going to MASS transaction in SAP and selecting Materials, is equivalent to using directly the tcode MM17 SAP transaction.

You are now able to select the data that you want.

The proposed selection fields (Fig 4) are the keys of previously selected tables – for example Material and Plant for MARC table in SAP, Plant Data for Material.

SAP Material Master mass change

Data corresponding to the search criteria are then displayed (Fig 5), with the SAP Material Master fields list previously selected for update.

Enter the new values in the first line, click on the icon Carry Out a Mass Change, and selected values will be applied to all data (Fig 6).

The SAP MASS change Material Master should be ready for execution.

Once again, make sure that only the values to update have a new value to be applied.

You can now save the changes, meaning the SAP MASS change Material Master will be applied to the  SAP MM   tables and fields.

After some execution time, you will get a SAP Material Master change report (Fig 7), in which errors are displayed first and have to be checked.

Mass maintenance in SAP MM

In the data selection screen (Fig 4), it is possible to get more SAP selection criteria (Fig 8), just click on icon Choose selection fields.

It is then possible to select in detail interesting fields for the required SAP mass update (Fig 9), selected fields (Fig 10) have to be added to the left column by using the central arrows.

Mass update in SAP

By using the standard icon Selection options, it is also possible to decide which filter to apply (Fig 11) on the field (existing value, inferior, superior,...).

Finally, once your selection criteria are defined (Fig 12), you can execute your mass update SAP as explained previously.
