Restrict change authorization for MM17 (Material master mass maintenance)

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Hi,
Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong forum. I want to know if it is possible to use the mass maintenance transaction MM17 (indus. material) to display data only istead of change/create. Is there some setting at the basis object level which can enable this? There are currently a lot of custom abap reports and queries in our system for viewing material master data, these can all be replaced by MM17. Basically we want to use MM17 as a reporting tool to display data only. Is a solution possible? Help is appreciated, thanks.
Regards

Have you tried the MM Information System node in the SAP Easy Access menu? There are a bunch of standard reports with navigation options there, for the user who has the correct authorization to display only.
Alternately, you may want to take a look into transaction MASS and use the B_MASSMAIN object, depending on your requirements - but test it well.
Cheers,
Julius
