Purchase order texts.

what are the purpose of Basic data text (view "Basic data 1"), Purchase order text (view "Purchase order text" ), from the menu Edit, Long Text, Create Text?
Best regards

Basic data text:
You can use this text as you like, for example, to store additional, general information on the material
If a text  has not yet been maintained, the system creates a blank text in the logon language. If you want to create a text in another language, choose Create text and specify the language in the dialog box that appears. Then enter your text as required. For more word-processing functions, choose Editor to enter your text in SAPscript. For information on how to use SAPscript, see the SAP library documentation .
Purchase order text:
A purchase order text is a text describing the material in more detail. This text is subsequently copied to purchasing documents (such as purchase requisitions or purchase orders) automatically, where you can change it if necessary. It is valid for all organizational levels, not for a specific plant. You can enter a purchase order text in the material master record in as many languages as you like, though only one text is allowed per language

  • Material description VS Purchase order Text when creating a PO

    Hi Gurus,
    When creating a PO for a specific material, I have to print a purchase order text different from the material description.
    To do this, a specific text has be added to the material master data in the tab "Purchase order Text" with the italian language maintained.
    But, when i start to create a new PO for this material, the short text that is shown is retrieved form the Material description and not from the Purchase order text that has been added before.
    How can I do to have the purchase order text shown in the PO instead of the common material description?
    Thanks in advance for your support.

    Hi Rajaram,
    thansk a lot for your answer, it has been very helpful.
    Could you please clarify me the below points?
    1) Could you please confirm me that this is the functionality of the standard SAP System? That means that in case we want to put the purchase order text in to "short text" we would need to create an ad hoc development, right?
    2) In case we print the PO with the purchase order text added for the material, is there any point where we can find this information for the material, or we will see just the material description from the Material Master Data?
    Thanks a lot for your support.

  • Purchase Order text field update in Material Mater

    Hi experts,
    Is't possible that we can give authorization to update ONLY Purchase Order text field
    under the Purchase Order text view in MM?
    But while giving authorization, I could only see "Maintenance statuses of Material" I could only see status code "E" in general for Purchasing view.
    Please advise if this is possible to control to give authorization to update only this Purchase order text view in MM.

  • Purchase Order text

    What is the use of maintaining Purchase order text while maintaining the material master.
    I had maintained some text in the material master ( Purchase order text view ) in MM01
    But while creation of PO, i am unable to  see the text getting copied in to the item text of the PO.
    Please expedite.

    The Purchase order text is exactly that, it is text that can be copied to the Purchase order. But it does not (and should not) replace the item text.
    But if you want the Purchase order text to be printed on the PO in the item text area then this is possible, the program that controls the PO printing can be told to use the Purchase order text from the Material in the PO item text instead. But the display on ME23N etc. would still show the item text even though the PO is showing the Purchase Order text from the material master.
    So for printing only, it can be done but it can't be done (without user exit etc.) within the PO record itself.

  • Purchase order text in material is replicated from ECC to SRM?

    Hello experts,
    In the standard process of replicating materials from an SAP ECC system to SRM, is the purchase order text tab in MM03 replicated to SRM?
    I've tried searcing for this text in SRM but I guess it is not replicated.
    Is there a way to do this?

    Generally speaking, product longtexts are not automatically replicated to SRM via MW.
    The filters of text headers and text lines are not taken into consideration.
    -- In case in transaction R3AC1 object MATERIAL has inactive filters for tables STXH and STXL, please remove flags and synchronize the filters.
    -- In the backend table CRMOBJTAB still shows inactive entries for both tables.
    -- Check the notes no. 555520 and 839995. Please apply and follow the instructions given in the longtext.
    Now the filters should work and the basic longtext should get replicated.

    You can call a transaction and pass it a BDC table that tells it where you want it to go.  You have to work out for yourself what to put into the BDC table.  The code below works for tcode CATSSHOW.
    DATA: bdcdata_wa  TYPE bdcdata,
          bdcdata_tab TYPE TABLE OF bdcdata.
    DATA opt TYPE ctu_params.
       CLEAR bdcdata_wa.

        bdcdata_wa-dynpro   = '1000'.
        bdcdata_wa-dynbegin = 'X'.
        APPEND bdcdata_wa TO bdcdata_tab.
        CLEAR bdcdata_wa.
        bdcdata_wa-fnam = 'SO_STATU-LOW'.
        bdcdata_wa-fval = '20'.
        APPEND bdcdata_wa TO bdcdata_tab.
        CLEAR bdcdata_wa.
        bdcdata_wa-fnam = 'ANDZEIT'.
        bdcdata_wa-fval = SPACE.
        APPEND bdcdata_wa TO bdcdata_tab.

        bdcdata_wa-fnam = 'PAST'.

  • Item text in Purchase Order getting updated with info. record Purchase Order Text

    Hello All,
    I am working in a roll out project and facing issue in text repeating twice for the line item in the Purchase Order for the new company code for which rollout is happening
    Item text in Purchase Order getting updated with info. record Purchase Order Text
    01) PO Text is maintained in the material master under "Purchase Order Text" tab
    02) The PO text that is maintained in material master is getting updated in the Purchase Info. Record
    03) When Purchase Order is created, the "Item Text" gets updated in the Purchase Order automatically only for the new company code for which rollout is happening. when printed, this results in the text getting duplicated twice
    03.1) this behavior is not observed in the Plants/ Company code that is already Live
    Configurations in the system:
    The copying rules for the "Texts for Purchase Orders" is
    Source Object = "Info Record", Source Text="Purchase Order Text", Fix="*"
    We have modified the Purchase Order form to print one of  the condition types maintained for calculating the tax. Other than this there is no change to the plants that are already live.
    I could not locate any "Purchase Organization" / "Company Code" / "Plant specific configuration.
    Am I missing any configuration or where can I look in what is causing this error.
    Request help from the experts in the forum.
    with Regards,
    Dhandapani R

    There is no company/purchasing/plant specific customizing for purchase order text.
    The customizing copying rules for the "Texts for Purchase Orders" affects all equally .
    If the text in the purchase order in ME23N is already filled different to other plants, then you either have a modification in place, or the texts are differently maintained in the referenced data (vendor, material, info record, contract)

  • Purchase Order text in Material Master

    Hi experts,
    A material code ( for ex  10000000 ) is opened in plant X and is also extended to plant Y.  We want to enter purchase order text in the same material code  10000000  ( thru tcode MM02 ) for plant X only.  At present, the purchase order text which we entered for plant X is also depiciting in plant Y for above material code.
    Our requirement is that the purchase order text which we entered for plant X should not appear in plant Y.
    Please suggest.
    Solutions / suggestions will be highly appreciated.
    ( Rajneesh Gulati )

    You can try doing in 2 ways of keeping Purchase order text.
    1. If you do not want the text maintained in Plant X and not to maintain the same in Plant Y , you can delete the same in Plant Y and save so that It wont appear.
    2. IF you don want the the text to be maintained in Plant Y, You need not extent the purchase order text view in plant Y.

  • Purchase Order Text data

    I have a request to add specific plant quality requirements text data to the Material master Purchase order text tab to print the text output on all Purchase Orders for the material.  Can someone tell me how many characters the Material Master Purchase order text tab can hold text data?

    You can enter any number of text words.... But the PO print out will be in more that of the required number of pages and will have all that text, which might not be useful all the times. So, in general the text size will be limited as per the Business Requirement and space constraint on the PO print page.

  • Purchase order text field

    Dear Gurus,
    I need to maintain text in some materials in purchase order text view in material master through LSMW.
    Please tell field and table where this purchase order text is stored.
    I have checked some threads also but not clear.

    it is explained in docu how to find the text name object and id, and I explained it as well many many times here in the forum.
    Please read docu and search threads.
    text fields in the Po are subject to customizing, so I cannot give you the text id you have to use.
    What speaks against LSMW?
    The docu link I gave you is for LSMW, so it certainly works with LSMW
    I am using it at least once a month for loading texts to any kind of object.

  • Purchase Order Text in Vendor Master

    Hello.  Does anyone have information on how to use the Purchase Order Text field in the vendor master?  Everything I have read so far is in reference to SRM.  We are currently running ECC6.0.  I entered information into the PO Text field of the Purchasing screen on the vendor master, but cannot figure out how to get it to input to the PO header text.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    In customizing ->material management -> purchasing -> purchase order -> texts for purchase orders -> define copying rules for header texts, choose "header text" and click on text linkages. Here you can enter for source object "vendor master", and for source text choose vendor master header text.
    This will copy text from vendor master to PO header text.
