Long Text Field in a Table

Hello Everyone,
I am looking for a solution for including a Long Text Field in a Table. I was not able to find any UI Element for LongText Field in a table. Could anyone suggest me a solution for this. I greatly appreciate your help.
Regards,
Gopal.

Hi Pankaj,
Thanks for your reply. I know that we cannot insert "TextEdit" UI Element in a table as this option is not available in ABAP WD. I also know that we can increase the width of the table Cell editor. But we dont want the Long text field to look like that.
We are looking for some thing that looks a bit meanigful for entering short paragraphs. It would be great if you can suggest us with some other ways of doing this.
I hope you can understand my requirement. I appreciate your help.
Regards,
Gopal.

  • Need to find table/field behind "Item long text" field in Notes tab in FB70

    Hello,
    To print a custom FI invoice, I need to access the data entered in the "Item long text" field of the Notes tab in FB70. To test, I used 5000 characters in that field to make sure it stood out from the rest of the data. F1 help does nothing on that field, and even running an SQL trace (ST05) doesn't show the text in that field being entered into any table. I tried F1 on a nearby field and got a structure instead of a table, so I investigated the structure through SE11 but found no character field with such a large capacity. How else can I find where that field is stored?

    Thanks! It took a while, but with your help and a few other pages I managed to piece together an answer.
    Vinod helpfully explained that the text name is a concatenation of various fields, but didn't specify how to find the line item ID. If you go to table STXH (as hinted by Brad and confirmed [here|http://fuller.mit.edu/SAPWebDocs/LongComment.html]) and search for texts created today (or whenever you were testing), you'll see the text name ends in '001' after GJAHR, so the line item ID is '001' regardless of how many line items you enter in the invoice.
    Armed with that info, you can call READ_TEXT and loop through the results to concatenate the contents of each TDLINE field. (FB70 automatically breaks the user-entered text into different lines even if the user didn't press Enter, and each line gets its own record in the results.)
    Thanks again,
    Pedro

  • G/L Account Long Text Field in Display

    Dear Sir,
    I want G/L Account long text field be displayed along with G/L account number in G/L Account line item display report (FBL3N)
    I cheched the layout, the option of G/L account number is available but option of G/L account Long text is not available.
    Kindly guide me as to how can I do it?
    Regards
    Chirag Shah

    You must do some development for it.
    You can add additional field to FBL*N reports with using BTE exit.
    First of all, if you don't use BTE before, you must create a product on FIBF.
    Call FIBF transaction -> Settings -> Products -> ...of a customer
    Create a new line,
    Product: ZFI
    Text: BTE Products for FI Exit
    Product active: tick checks from activation.
    Then you must call SE11 for structure RFPOS.
    You must use append structure function for this structure and you can define ZFI_RFPOS append structure
    Define 4 fields.
    Component: KUNNR - Component type: KUNNR
    Component: NAMED - Component type: NAME1
    Component: LIFNR - Component type: LINFR
    Component: NAMEK - Component type: NAME1
    Then save and active your RFPOS structure.
    After that, you must do same step for structure RFPOSX.
    Then go to SE37 and copy from SAMPLE_INTERFACE_00001650 to ZFI_INTERFACE_00001650 FM.
    After copy action, you must uncomment this line on ZFI_INTERFACE_00001650 FM's source code. It's very important;
    E_POSTAB = I_POSTAB.
    Then you should add some ABAP code for getting customer & vendor details.
    I give you some examples, you can use it. (Next message on this thread, please check)
    Then save and active FM.
    Call FIBF transaction again.
    FIBF -> Settings -> Process Modules -> ...of a customer
    Define a new line.
    Process: 00001650
    Function Module: ZFI_INTERFACE_00001650
    Product: ZFI
    and this customizing.
    Then you go to SE38 transaction.
    start report RFPOSXEXTEND. After starting, a pop-up appears, you must click YES.
    After those operations, you can see customer/vendor code and their names on FBL3N.
    ABAP source example,
    TABLES : bseg, kna1, lfa1.
    IF sy-tcode = 'FBL3N'.
      CLEAR: bseg.
      SELECT SINGLE *
      FROM bseg
      WHERE bukrs = i_postab-bukrs
           AND belnr = i_postab-belnr
           AND gjahr = i_postab-gjahr
           AND koart = 'K'.
      IF sy-subrc EQ 0.
        e_postab-lifnr = bseg-lifnr.
        CLEAR: lfa1.
        SELECT SINGLE *
        FROM lfa1
        WHERE lifnr = bseg-lifnr.
        IF sy-subrc EQ 0.
          e_postab-namek = lfa1-name1.
        ENDIF.
      ENDIF.
      CLEAR : bseg.
      SELECT SINGLE *
      FROM bseg
      WHERE bukrs = i_postab-bukrs
           AND belnr = i_postab-belnr
           AND gjahr = i_postab-gjahr
           AND koart = 'D'.
      IF sy-subrc EQ 0.
        e_postab-kunnr = bseg-kunnr.
        CLEAR: kna1.
        SELECT SINGLE *
        FROM kna1
        WHERE kunnr = bseg-kunnr.
        IF sy-subrc EQ 0.
          e_postab-named = kna1-name1.
        ENDIF.
      ENDIF.
    ENDIF.

  • BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST long text field missing

    Hi,
    I will have to transfer our vendor open items from v 3.1 to ERP 2004. I
    am using <b>BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST</b> to upload these open items. However, I
    cannot find the <b>'LONG TEXT'</b> field in the said BAPI. In using <b>F-02</b>, a
    long text field/button is available. <u><b>How can i post an entry in the long text
    field of the line item in f-02 using BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST</b></u>.
    Also, i have used the extension1 table and a BTE (note 487722) in
    uploading the posting key. Since field bschl is available in table
    accit, there was no problem in doing this. However, i cannot seem to
    find the field long text in this table. Is it available? If not, what
    can I do with the above situation.
    Thanks.

    Hi
    Excuse me! you can't use RFBIBL00, use the fm SAVE_TEXT.
    After calling the BAPI you should have the number of FI document will be created and know in which item you need to insert the long text so:
    THEAD-TDOBJECT     = <Object text>.
    THEAD-TDNAME(4)    = <Company code>
    THEAD-TDNAME+4(10) = <Document number>
    THEAD-TDNAME+14(4) = <Fyscal year>
    THEAD-TDNAME+18(3) = <Item number>.
    THEAD-TDID         = <Id text>.
    THEAD-TDSPRAS      = <Language>.
    THEAD-TDLINESIZE   = 72.
    These are the header data, transfer the text in LINES parameters.

  • Change the font color of a text field in a table by key-combination

    I want to change the font color of a text field in a table (single cell only) on pressing a key combination. Does anybody know how to do this.
    I have a lot of data in a table. During an evaluation of the data in a meeting I want to change the color of the text depending on the result of the meeting. (for example: High risk = CTRL+R makes the text red).
    I know how to change the color using a button, but I do not want to add a button after each cell. For this reason I would like to do it on a key combination that alway refers to the active cell.
    Many thanks for your help in advance.
    Marcel

    Hi,
    I don't think you can use the ctrl key like that as those shortcuts will be intercepted by Reader (ctrl-R toggles the ruler display on / off).  You also might have trouble updating the color while you still have focus on it.  You can use the shift key in a similar way, so if you only have lower case characters in the text fields then you can do something like;
    if (xfa.event.shift)
        switch (xfa.event.change)
            case "R":
                this.fontColor = "255,0,0";
                break;
            case "O":
                this.fontColor = "255,102,0";
                break;
            case "G":
                this.fontColor = "0,255,0";
                break;
        xfa.event.change = ""; // ignore character
    If you need uppercase characters maybe you can have one button to set "review mode" and test that on the if (xfa.event.shift) line.  But again it wont take effect until you have tabbed out of the field.

  • Is it possible to Create a Long Text Field (more than 255 Char Long)?

  • To Make the Long text field as required using OA Framework Personalization

    Hi All
    In IProcurement requisition, we have long text field called 'Justification' a long text field. I have made this field as mandatory by setting the required property as 'Yes' at site level. This works for Most of the cases. However if the user just presses Enter key and skip without entering something in this field . So how to stop the user without entering something except spaces or enterkey to proceed further.
    Regards
    Rajkumar

    Hi,
    Very Interesting question, I never thought of it.
    In your case you may try to extend the controller of that page and in the controller trim the text and set that value to the text.
    In other way, You can try in USER hook function : POR_CUSTOM_PKG package, check if you are getting that value.

  • Special Characters in Long Text Field of FI Documents

    Hi,
    Users entered the following in the long text field of a FI document:
    "Settlement of claims for direct shipment (Refer to XXX/YY-053/2009, XXX/YY-018/2009, XX2120000031 and X2120000033)"
    The default editor used is the one which looks like the MS Word.
    When we changd to the other editor (Goto > Change Editor), we see the following:
    "Settlement of claims for direct shipment to Thailand (Refer to"
    "XXX/YY-053/2009<(>,<)> XXX/YY-018/2009, XX2120000031 and X2120000033)"
    How did "<(>,<)> " comes about?
    Any ideas?

    I'd probably use a regex of "allowed" characters rather than a list of "disallowed" characters, but thats just a difference in approach.
    I would probably use a regular expression - alphanumeric is fairly easy to check
    String value = request.getParameter("enteredField");
    boolean alphaNumericOnly = value.matches("\\w+");As a matter of being nice to the user, you can also do this check in javascript on the client side.
    ALWAYS validate server side.
    Optionally validate client side to give the user a better experience (less round trip requests)

  • Setting the colour red for an input field or a text-field in a table

    Hy,
    I am using an input-field or text-field within a table-cell. For some rows in the table the text in the input-field / text-field should be red. How can I do this ?
    Florian Hroch

    Create a new attribute "TextColor" of type "com.sap.ide.webdynpro.uielementdefinitions.TextViewSemanticColor" (local DDIC types), under the table's data source node.
    Bind the "TextView.semanticColor" property of the table cell editor to this attribute.
    If you cannot add new attributes under the data source node (this is the case if there is a structure binding), add a value node "TableProperties" (cardinality 1:1, selection 1:1) under the data source node and add the attribute there.
    Then you can control the color of the TextView in table row at index i by setting the "TextColor" value for node element at index i.
    For an input field, you cannot set the text color, a workaround might be adding an icon in an extra column.

  • Display long text field in multiple rows using CL_GUI_ALV_TREE

    Hi,
    I am working on ALV using CL_GUI_ALV_TREE. My last column in this ALV is a long text field which is a text editor field in a standard transactiion. As this text can have more than 250 characters value also, I want to display this field in more than one line , restricting each line to 75 characters. Is it possible to display a field content in more than one line? Please help.
    Thanks.

    HI,
    I dont think it is possible., but instead what i can suggest is  under last node which u want to split automatically, create 3 text edit fields and split ur text manually through program.

  • Modifying the lengh of a long text field- Crystal Report version 2011

    Hello,
    I'm having a problem with the long text field in my crystal report.
    I'll desribe the problem:
    We work with BW version 7.4 sp 5.
    I created a BEX Report with an infobject of type Long Text (Long Text is XL).
    I know the length of this field is 1,333 char.
    When I run the Bex Report the field is displayed correctly (long text).
    I then created a Crystal Report 2011 version 14.0.6.1036 RTM based on my BEX Query.
    The problem is that the Crystal report brought this database long text field as a
    String[70]. Thus I get only the first 70 characters of the field.
    Can we modify the settings of the field to enlarge it to be 1,333 characters in
    length?
    Thank you,
    Ayelet

    Hi Jothi,
    Short Text and Long Text are associated objects of a Characteristic from a BEx query.
    The 'Short Text' will not turn to 'Long Text' by setting the 'Can Grow' option.
    In Fact, both are completely different objects.
