    we changing item category( in vov4) in

    Please understand your above sentence is incorrect.

    Changing of item category is done in the sales order (in VA01 / 2). This is done by the enduser and is a "transaction related activity".

    Configuring MltCa ("alternate item category") and DfltC ("Default item category") is done in VOV4. Configuring this is done by a SD consultant and not by an enduser.


    Thus we don't change item category in VOV4, we change item category in VA01/2.

    Important: To change item category in VA01/2, first the relevant configuration has to be done in VOV4.


    How and what a consultant conveys to his/her clients is very important. That is the reason why I share this post with you.
