Information from SAP users for SAP Users
Problem: Transaction IW42
You have entered your final material in the materials section, however the material number was incorrect and you cannot get the correct number immediately. You receive an error message: “Entry does not exist - check your entry”. You’re stuck and cannot back out of that error without losing the rest of the work on the page.
Solution: Enter ANY material number that is a real material (Oil for example 159000049) and leave the rest of the data you had entered for the line alone. Press enter and as long as you have completed all required fields the line will be accepted. At this point highlight the line and click on the delete line button. Now you can finish the order, and later MIGO the additional part onto it.
