After performing all the migration steps the purchasing notes are not updated in the system.


It is not possible to add or enhance Purchasing Notes through Migration for the existing Materials or using the Mass Data Maintenance tool, as this is currently a system behavior.


It is possible to add Purchasing Notes when you are adding new materials using the migration of materials tool, however the modification or enhancement of purchasing notes for existing materials needs to be performed manually in SAP Business ByDesign systems.
