Material Listing and Exclusion Configuration in S/4HANA.

Definitions:

Material Listing and Exclusion are used in the business scenarios where the business want to limit specific customers to order some specific materials due to some business reasons.

Material Listing: A Material Listing is created for a Customer. The Customer can only buy the Material contained in the list. The system does not allow any Material to be entered if they are not contained in the Material Listing.

 

Material Exclusion: A Material Exclusion is created for a Customer. The Customer cannot buy the Material contained in the list. It excludes the material from buying for the customer. The system will not allow  the material to enter that are in the Material Exclusion List.

Material Listing and Exclusion uses Condition Techniques to List / Exclude Material for specific Customers.

Configuration Path: SPRO>Sales and Distribution>Basic Functions>Listing/Exclusion.

 

Configuration Nods:

 

  1. Activate Listing/Exclusion by Sales Document Type
  2. Procedures for Maintaining Listing/Exclusion
  3. Maintain Listing/Exclusion Types
  4. Optimize Accesses
  5. Maintain Access Sequences for Listing/Exclusion
  6. Maintain Allowed Fields for Listing/Exclusion

Configuration Steps:

Activate Listing/Exclusion by Sales Document Type

Maintain Condition Tables for Listing/Exclusion

Maintain Access Sequences for Listing/Exclusion

Maintain Listing/Exclusion Types

Procedures for Maintaining Listing/Exclusion

 

Maintain Condition Record

T-Code=VB01

Material Listing Condition Record.

 

Material Exclusion Condition Record

 

Sales Order Behavior:

Material Exclusion Sales Order

T-Code=VA01

Note: Material Listed in material exclusion conditions are

Customer:INCBAN0102

Material exclusion List:

1. M0001

2.M0002

When we create sales order and use the customer and try to input the exclusion listed materials, the system will not allow to proceed the order and will show error messages “Material has been excluded”.

Material Listing Sales Order

T-Code=VA01

Note: Material Listed in material listing conditions are

Customer: INCBAN0102

Material exclusion List:

1.M0003

2.M0004

3.M0005

When we create sales order and try to input material outside the material listed in the listing condition records the system will show message” Material is not listed and therefore not allowed”

As you can see material M0003 & M0004 are in the Material Listing Condition Record but material M0008 are not in the Material Listing Condition Record so in sales order it’s not allowing to use it and shows the error message.

 

Tables:

  1. G000
  2. KOTG001
  3. KOTG002
  4. KOTG003
  5. KOTG004
