      Also use the Import Data from File option to save time on multiple changes. Really helps for all MASS transactions.

      This is very good. Can you please let me know if its possible to mass change only for one plant/organization? I have to change mfpn-manufacturer part number, table MFRPN and when I use table BEGRU changes are also made in other plants as we have few part numbers the same... How I can overtake that?

      Thank you
