Define User-Defined Message Types

In this step you can change the message type that the system proposes for certain messages. This enables you to control how such messages are handled by the system.

For some messages there are no restrictions on how you can define the message type. Other messages require a minimum message type.

Example

There is no minimum message type for message CK 037 ("Lot size taken from costing view").

Message CK 065 ("Activity type in CO area cannot be charged") requires the minimum message type I (Information).

Standard settings

The standard system contains user-defined message types in various work areas.

Activities

To change the default message types:

1. Enter the work area in which the message is issued (such as CK for Product Costing).
2. Enter the work area (such as CK) and the message number (such as 037).
3. Press F4 and choose a message type.
