The source exists in the system.


The source and the new routing can belong to different company codes . The company codes must, however, belong to the same controlling area.

However be aware of the following exceptions and special features.

Copying from a Source in Another Plant

Plant-dependent data are handled in the following manner when copying between plants:

  • In the case of the materials to be produced by the routing, the reference to the plant of the source is kept in the new routing.

  • All other data are copied with reference to the plant of the new routing.

  • The data on the detail screens of the routing objects are checked. You have to change the data, if an entry

  • Does not exist in the plant of the new routing

  • Does not agree with the work center data in the plant of the new routing
