Supplementary Documentation - EAN11 0001
The EAN on the Basic Data screen always relates to the base unit of measure.
An EAN must fulfil several criteria, for example, it must belong to a valid number range interval, it must normally have a valid EAN prefix, and it must satisfy a predefined check digit algorithm. For this reason, an EAN should only be assigned externally if it is specified by an external source such as the vendor, or if you are familiar with the configuration of EANs in Customizing. It is otherwise best for EANs to be assigned internally.
With internal number assignment, you enter the EAN category but not an EAN. With external number assignment, you enter the EAN but not an EAN category. In this case, the EAN category is determined by the system automatically.
Supplementary Documentation - EAN11 0002
You may enter the EAN as a selection criterion on its own or in conjunction with the vendor or material number.
- If you enter only the EAN, the system will first search for all materials assigned to the EAN and then for all purchase orders for these materials and for this EAN. This search may possibly be time-intensive.
- If you also enter the vendor or material number, the EAN serves only as an additional selection criterion in searching for purchase orders according to vendor or material.
