    are you taliking about QM procurement key? If so you can maintain by transaction QI05. This is for mass maintanance of QM procurement key in the material master.

    The problem is that I can't see the field of control key in procurement in the QM view. For some material I've only the field QM proc. active and Tech. delivery terms but I don't see QM control key, Certificate type, Target QM system even if I create with QI05 a control key. How I can see these fields?

    Select an organization level for the material. For QM view organization level plant should be
    selected. The field you have mentioned are plant specific.

    Hope this will solve ur problem.

    Still ur not getting then check the field selection group 99 for ur material types.(Transaction code OMS9 )

    You can customize the material master views for the combination of Material Type and Plant. In this you can specify which fields are to be shown and what are to be hidden .

    You go thro the IMG and see if that is the reason for your QM control key not being displayed.

    The point is that you have to create the QM view for the material-plant. Try Tx MM01.
    If the material is marked to be QM-active but the view is not created, you have some kind of standard view for the QM-view (with MM02) but without specific data for that plant (the sympton is that the key is not shown !!)
    Try this and let me know
