I have one scenario in my current project where client does not want to use Key X he want to change the the key E to F or F to E as and when required.
Procurment key F is maintained in some material A.
For this material A - Pur Req X000000001 exist now how to change the key to E for future requirements.
system does not allow to change the Key when Dep reqt exit for material A. Now if i am changing the Key in Table what will be the impact in my PR./PO.....
Also if the Key is E in material A and having one Prd order xxxx0002 now client want to procure it externally for future processing and he want to change the key F now what will the effect in my Prd Ord if i am changing the key from E to F.
Client Does not want to use Key --- X at any condition.
Kindly suggest is it better to change the Key using Table..................

Ravi, unfortunately not everything that a customer wants makes sense, like in your case.
To me, it does not make any sense to keep on changing procuremt type often, from E to F or vice versa. That's what X is all about.
Please tell us what is your customer's reasons for not using X!
You can not change procrument type fequently as you have to delete all the realted documents lik open PR/PO and close production orders which is not advisable in any case & no client would like to do that.
Please tell the client that only solution given by SAP is Procrument type X sothat you can decide whether you want to produce inhouse or procure from outside.
As Mario rightly pointed, you should convince cleint about standard functionality in sAP and use X as procurement type .
Otherwise use different material codes for external processing and inhouse production.
Unfortunatily you dont have anyother solution in this case.
