Item Category Codes are used to classify inventory items for different purposes, such as reporting, pricing, and preference processing. These codes are used in a variety of ways, but one of the most common uses is for definition of item groups used in Advanced Pricing Adjustments and Advanced Preference processing. For more information on how to use item category codes to define item groups please refer to Doc ID 625578.1 Complex Groups.

Item category codes are populated during the Item Master (P4101) and Item Branch (P41026) creation process based upon the settings in the processing options.

In the Item Master Revisions (P4101) program, Process Tab Option #3 (Category Codes) must be set to 1 (Display screen) to display the Category Codes Form W4101B.

In the Item Branch Revisions (P41026) program, Process Tab Option #1 (Category Codes) must be set to 1 (Display screen) Form W41026G.

After item creation the item category codes can be accessed for update by finding the record in the Item Master (P4101) or Item Branch (P41026) inquiry and taking the row exit to Category Codes.

There are no differences between the item category code fields displayed for the item master (F4101) and the item branch (F4102) records. During item branch creation, the values in the new item branch record will be retrieved from the item master, but these may be changed by the user from the Item Branch Revisions (P41026) Category Codes screen (W41026G).

When accessed from the inquiry screen using the Category Codes row exit, both the Item Master Category Codes (W4101B) and the Item Branch Category Codes (W41026G) screens will display Previous and Next buttons to allow users to advance through the records and update them one at a time.


The document is create to show the users how to use the Item Category Codes. This document details the standard EnterpriseOne functionality that applies to Item category codes in Distribution and Manufacturing.
