Mass Update of BOM by CS20 or CEWB


This document explains how we can do the mass update for a BOM.I feel that this is a basic question asked in the forum for many times .

Massly we can update a Existing BOM by CS20 OR CEWB Transaction

1. Tcode CS20

First select relevant option 1) user wants change item data

2) Delete material

3) Add Material

4) Add Document

5) Add class


After that you can update following field  Quantity

costing relevancy indicator
Bulk material

Item Text

But it is difficult to remove costing relevancy  indicator through CS20 if it is defined as blank in the system .

For that process we will use another Tcode CEWB

Step 1

Give current working area as  SAP_ITEM


Step 2

Go to item tab in the component field give the component code ( for which user wants to do the changes in all Bom)

click on Load BOMS & Tasklists Data.


Step 3

Select Bom for which user wants to do the changes & click on Edit/Lock Button


Step 4

After that Field will became Editable user have to change the fields & save


Now BILL OF MATERIAL has changed as per requirement massly.

Thanks & Reagrds

      Dear Sir

      Very good explanation to the topic.

      But is there any way that I can change same for all line items in a single shot?

      As of now, I can change 9 entries at a time. And there are more than 10k+ items.

      Please help.

      For mass change in CEWB, select the lines, and the column you want to update.

      Then use "Extras" > "Mass change"

      A popup will appear to enter the new value.

      I hope this can help.

      Dear Mr Sandeep,

      I used Tocde CEWB to change materia item and quantiy, but  it's has an error: "Generation not supported for change object" when I click on Edit/Clock button. How can I fix it?

      Another way, I click 2 columm "component" and "quantity". Then, I  input new value but the system respond " 0 of 1 item change". Can you explaind for me?


      Thanks very much,

      Dear Sandeep,
      I have an issue with CS20 - whilst replacing a component in a large number of BOM's, for some of the components the quantity is being vanished.
      Is this some customizing setup per material type, and how can I handle it?
