When we work with the variant configuration environment and in case of interfaces with the Third party system.Then there will be requirement to transfer the Material along with the char values to other systems.
It is recommended to use the standard IDOC methods.
We have the MATMAS message type to transfer the material. But generally when you try to transfer using this message, the char and the values will not be transmitted automatically.
In such case kindly check the setting in the OMT0. In this you need to activate the tranfser of char values.
Once done then the IDOCS will carry the char values in the segments.
