Use

You can go straight from the article master to processing for follow-up/replacement article relationships where you can display, change or delete follow-up relationships for the articles currently being displayed or processed in the article master.

Integration

From the article master, you use Follow-Up/Replacement Article to switch from the Basic Data view to processing for follow-up/replacement article relationships.

Prerequisites

The article that you display or change in the article master belongs to one of the following article categories:

        Single article

        Generic article

        Variant of a generic article

        Set

        Prepack

        Display

Features

You can directly access processing for follow-up/replacement article relationships when you are changing or displaying article master records:

        If you display an article in the article master, you can display the follow-up/replacement relationships in which the article is the original article.

Note

You cannot assign follow-up or replacement articles to a generic article. If you display a generic article in the article master, you can display all the follow-up/replacement article relationships in which the original article is a variant of the generic article.

        If you change an article in the article master, you can create, change or delete the follow-up/replacement relationships in which the changed article is the original article.

Note

If you change a generic article in the article master, you can create, change or delete follow-up/replacement article relationships in which the original article is a variant of the generic article.

You can only use the variants of a generic article that are already saved to the database as original, follow-up or replacement articles. If you create a new variant for a generic article, you must save the generic article before you can use the variants in follow-up/replacement article relationships.

        If you create a new article in the article master, you cannot directly access follow-up/replacement article processing.

If you want to process follow-up relationships for other articles, you must call processing for follow-up/replacement article relationships from the SAP Easy Access screen.
