              Basically you have to do the setup in inventory and iProcurement for this.. Please follow below steps...

              Inventory :_

              1) Category codes setup
              2) Category Sets setup
              3) Category code assignment

              iProcurement_

              1) iProcurement Category Hierarchy :

              Internet Procurement Catalog Administration > Schema > Category Hierarchy

              e.g Top Level Category : Canada Item Category

              Level2 : 1) Admin 2) Direct Material-Additives 3) Direct Material-Chemicals 4) Direct Material-Colorants

              2) iProcurement Item Categories:

              Internet Procurement Catalog Administration > Schema > Item Categories

              Category Name                     Category Key                     Description_
              Admin     Admin     Admin
              Direct Material-Additives     Direct Material-Additives     Direct Material-Additives
              Direct Material-Chemicals     Direct Material-Chemicals     Direct Material-Chemicals
              Direct Material-Colorants     Direct Material-Colorants     Direct Material-Colorants

              3) iProcurement: Mapping Categories

                   Internet Procurement Catalog Administration > Schema > Category Mapping

              Description: Example Categories are listed below:
