Reproducing the Issue

  1. Gp to Mass Data Maintenance work center
  2. Select Export Materials
  3. Select e.g. 100000 Materials
  4. Export Data to CSV file
  5. According to selection one or more files with a total of 100000 data records will be created
  6. Confirm to continue
  7. Check the export files
  8. The total amount of all records in the export file(s) does not match 100000. It is e.g. 100010 


When exporting data via Mass Data Maintenance, ensure the following:

1. Search based on a combination of material and language in which the data is maintained specifically. 
2. When searching without a language filter, you can export data, but you might need to adapt the file, i.e. by removing duplicate entries.
3. As an alternative solution, make use of Data Extraction, to also get a proper result.
