Requirment to keep some default text at Order header.

SAP SD Masters,

😕

Requirement 1.

We have requirement to keep some default text at Order Header.

Ex - Text ID (K001 - Driver Contact Info) should have default text - "Mo: +91 9898989898".

Which can be overwrite, if user have need.

Requirement 2.

Is it possible to keep some error msg, for which text ID has missing text.

We have 20 category of text ID at order header level.

From that 6 text ID has mandatory to maintain text. When user don't maintain text, system is throwing error.

But the problem is,

System is only giving error msg stating - Header text is missing.

Here if system can give information with text ID or description of text ID. It will be easy to identify by user to, which text ID is mandatory.

Hope my questions are making sense.

Functionally I check almost control. Might be I am missing some place to check. Kindly give direction.

I don't have immediate requirement but this solution we must need. So, we can make out Text Determination more user friendly.

Thanks.

    • Krishna,

      This is what I was looking for it.

      Why to go for Userexit and all. We can achieve through some std configuration, with the help of Form Print out (ABAP T- code - SE75).

      I really appreciate your reply and knowledge on this.

    All,

    First of all I am very thank full to all to show your interest and for giving your valuable reply.

    Every single reply is making good sense for me. But still need to look for functional solution, if it is possible.

    (Hope sridhar can give some functional solution)

    Let me discuss more here.

    Billing header text is not referencing from any preceding document or customer master.

    User need to maintain here manually.

    Here we have 6 text ID's are mandatory, without that we can't save billing.

    So we found out two ways to solve this issue.

    Either if, we can give some default text for that 6 Text ID's, which can be overwrite.

    OR

    System should give some error msg stating which text ID has missing text.

    • Hi Keyur,

      For creating default values for text ids, you can use standard test features. You can create an access in the text access sequence with text object "TEXT".

      Please refer the below link for details

      Please try it, It may work

      Thanks

    you can make the Text as Obligatory and mark the field ic (incomplete messages) in the sales document type under VOV8

    • Siva,

      Thank you very much for your reply.

      But...

      Its already obligatory then only it become mandatory to enter.

      Regarding VOV8 incomplete message dosen't make any sense. It can't help me to achieve error meaage with => which text type is missing.

    Sorry guys,

    One more most important information I forget to inform.

    I am looking for Billing Documnet header text.

    Bcoz when we are processing at sales order header, incompletion log is showing correct information. Stating which are the text ID need to fill. But not at billing.

      Hi Sridhar,

      The required information is about driver phone number and I believe, it cannot be maintained at order level (as the driver details will be available at the time of shipment) and also as it may keep changing and may not be possible to maintain the text in any master records for determination in the document. If this information is maintained as text in any of the preceding documents (delivery, shipment etc.,) then it can be copied to invoice header. If it is maintained in any other fields of the preceding document or in a custom table, then we have to go with enhancement for reading and writing the text.

      This is just my understanding and not ruling out the config. possibilities also.

      Regards,

      Ravi

    Hi Keyur,

    Is your text determination is in place?

    Have you done the text determination from customer master--contact person-- to --billing document header?

    you can check in VOTXN--Access sequence for text id's and text procedure

    assignments. You can check the config in the following link which I think would be helpful to understand.

    Thanks,

    • Sridhar,

      Thanks to show your functional approach to resolve this issue.

      But its not working for me. First I am looking for functional solution only.

      In my case No access sequence concept will come in to picture.

      Billing header text is not referencing from any preceding document or customer master.

      Thanks..
