2775790 - Standard Report does not show the GTIN number


You have opened data source Material General Data and UoM characteristics or Material General Data or a report based on them and noticed that the GTIN number is not shown for some Materials.


SAP Business by Design

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Business Analytics, view Design Data Sources.
  2. Search for the data source (technical ID MAT_GENERAL_MULTI) and open the preview for it.
  3. Go to the view and add characteristic GTIN.
  4. You notice that # is shown instead of the original data.


This is the standard system behavior.


Please maintain all the UoM conversions and characteristics for the material in the master data and the data is available in the data source Material General Data and UoM characteristics or reports created on top of it.
