2537599 - Unable to locate Materials in Value Help search in Mass Data Maintenance


When using the Mass Data Maintenance function there are a few Material IDs/Products which do not show any data in the Export option, but when you search the Material ID directly in the system it is present.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Mass Data Maintenance
  2. Select Material Export link
  3. Select Material ID value help

Search the required Material ID, you get no results However the Product is present in the Material view under Product data workcenter.


Max rows count in the search help is 200 values, If the record is not present in the list of 200 values then it will not show in the value help search.



You can manually search the Material ID by giving the required ID.

  2. Select Export Material link
  3. Enter the required Material ID in the Material ID search box ( Do not select the Value help)
  4. Select the Go button

You shall get the Material ID if it is present in the system.
