SAP Classification question

Is there a way to assign classification to a transaction rather than master data? We currently use classification in the material master (001 MARA and MARC), batches (023), Pur. Info Records (057) and Cust Mat'l Info Records (052). What I'd like to accomplish is a to assign a classification (class type) to Purchase Order line items and Quotation line items (EKPO table). I attempted to set this up, but I see no option of maintaining characteristic data within the ME47 and ME21N transactions. I don't know if I just missed a step...or if it's not meant to be used in transactional data. If anyone has successfully implemented classification in this area, I would greatly appreciate some advice.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is a method to associate classification data to a transaction, but technically you assign the classification data to e.g. a material on the transaction.

This is done by e.g. ordering a configurable material, and and assigning the configuration data in the “300” (or 200 – if this is still used for production orders) class type

    Your example of configurable materials is something we also use (class type 300). Sorry, I should've mentioned that in my initial message. What I'm looking for is not related to configurable materials. I just want to assign a data value to a document line item (PO and RFQ) because there is no standard field to hold the data elsewhere. Any new thoughts on this?
