EAN/UPC code in the material master

Hi all,

 

Does anybody have the scenario where the UPC number of a product is the same as the SCC number displayed on the container that holds this product with the difference being the EAN category and the leading zeroes? For example: UPC of a bottle is 080686001409 with EAN category = UC (length = 12 digits) and SCC of the case is 00080686001409 with EAN category = SC (length = 14 digits). The number is externally assigned. SAP does not let you enter these 2 codes in the master data. When you enter the second code, 00080686001409 and ctg SC for example, SAP automatically changes it back to the first code 080686001409 and maintains ctg SC. So now I have the same code with 2 different categories (and one of them u2013 SC u2013 has an incorrect length).

 

Please let me know if you have this scenario and what you have done to solve it.

 

Thanks in advance!

    Hi

    EAN numbers you can enter in additional data tab as well. Have a look on that. It will also help you to mainatain more than one EAN number. You need to create new category for that.

      Hi Antony,

       

      That's exactly how I am entering the 2 codes. In the additional data tab I enter one number for unit of measure "BT" (and ctg UC) and another number for unit of measure "CS" (and ctg SC). But still no success.

        Hi ,

         

        I am also facing the same problem. The system not allowed saving the same EAN/UPC number for multiple SKUu2019s with varying number of leading zeros.

         

        For example: UPC length 12 digits value like 085267207850 with EAN category Z3 and SCS length 14 digits value like 00085267207850 with EAN category Z5. The number is externally assigned. SAP does not let you enter these 2 codes in the master data. When you enter the second code, 00085267207850  and category Z5, SAP automatically changes it back to the first code 085267207850 and maintains category Z5. So now I have the same code with 2 different categories (and one of them u2013 Z5 u2013 has an incorrect length).

         

        Could you please let me know what you have done to solve it.

        Ismail
