Creating materials

I am having trouble getting BAPI_MATERIAL_SAVEDATA to create materials. (My ABAP report calls this as an ordinary...

function module.) When trying to perform an upload in my program, I've made extra sure that if I have populated a field in, say PLANTDATA, that the corresponding field in PLANTDATAX is set to 'X', and all the other fields on PLANTDATAX are set to blank. However, the system keeps coming back and telling me that the two structures do not match. What am I doing wrong?

The first field in PLANTDATAX is the plant (not a check box). It must match the plant supplied in PLANTDATA, otherwise you get this message (MM360). To help in solving this type of problem, you should always supply the error number. You can then search for that number in the source code of the BAPI to find out when it is generated, and why.
