1789486 - Inconsistent Filtering for Sales Organizations in Mass Change of Materials


You have a requirement to do Mass Change for some Material for a specific Sales Organizations. But when you use Advanced Filter for filtering with specific Sales Organizations, Mass Change screen displays all the Sales Organizations of Selected materials.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Product Data work center.
  2. Select Materials view.
  3. Select Advanced Search link.
  4. Select the required Sales Organizations ID.
  5. Select Go button.
  6. Select required Materials and select Mass Change button.
  7. Select Sales in Show field.

Here, all the Sales Organizations of the selected materials are visible instead of what was selected in the Advanced Search.


For the Mass Change screen, the anchor is the Material ID. If there are multiple Sales Organizations maintained for a material, then all those Sales Organizations are listed in the mass change screen even if you choose a specific Sales Organizations in advanced search.

This is due to that fact that, when the user clicks on mass change, the selected material IDs are passed to the mass change screen and not the Sales Organizations ID. For all these material IDs, the Sales Organizations are fetched.


This is the standard behavior.

You may consider using the following workaround:

In the Mass Change screen, you can further select the Material based on the Sales Organizations using CTRL key in the keyboard.
