1881558 - Not able to set the 'recursivity allowed' flag when creating a recursive class hierarchy structure involving a BOM item


When you try to assign a subclass to the superior class in transaction CL24N error message CL 550 'Class type &: class & causes BOMs to be recursive' occurs. Alternatively when you try to assign a material to a class in transaction MM02 the same error occurs. There is no possibility to allow the creation of recursive structures in these transactions.
