2800433 - Error: "Released List prices exist for Product XXX", While Trying to Update Product Category for Materials

Released List prices exist for Product XXX (where XXX represents product ID)


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to e.g. Product Data work center
  2. Select e.g. Materials view
  3. Select required ID and select Edit
  4. Change the Product Category as required and select Save
  5. Upon saving you receive the above mentioned error


This relates to a new check introduced with 1905 release. As the released list prices would be used up in the purchasing documents, the list prices would become invalid when there is a change in the product category. If the product category change was allowed, then creating new list prices would not cancel the existing ones automatically.


If you want to update the product category, you need to cancel the existing list prices first and create new list prices for the products.
