German term or phrase: Material zur alten Materialnummer (SAP)
Heading in an SAP file (I don't have the actual file, just a picture of it; I think it's a sample or something). Anyway, normally I'd say something like "Material for Old Material Number", but would like to verify what the exact SAP term would be. TIA for your help.

Explanation:
I think it was Dan McCrosky who initially provided the secret for finding SAP terms and it was passed on not long ago by Trudy.
1. In Google type the term you're looking for+site:help.sap.com
2. This will give you,for example, site:help.sap.com+Material
3. Retype it as Material+site:help.sap.com
4. This takes you to the German SAP help site.
5. Look for the term in the German text and remember where it is located.
6. In the German URL there will be a "de". Replace it with "en" and you'll go to the English SAP site. There you'll find the English translation of your term. This is an amazing tool. But in your case, I couldn't find Material zur alten Materialnummer.

I very much appreciate your tip, but I can't award maximum points where no actual translation has been given. Using your advice, I have looked up "Materialnummer" and found that to be "material number(s)". So I guess it's just "material for old material number". I am not totally sure of this, but I can't think what else it could be, and obviously no one else knows either. Thanks for the tip at least.
