    Hi Anusha,

    Go to SE38 -> SAPLXM06 ->Display ->GoTo ->Text Elements ->Text Symbols

    and insert the required custom name for the tab and the SYM value should be equal to the screen number which you are adding.

    For E.g. adding a new tab in purchase order item , we have to add the text element with the SYM = 111 and the text as per the requirement at the above location.

    Save & Activate the changes.

    • Hi -

      If it still not working then debug the code in the function module -

      MEGUI_BUILD_REQ_ITEM_PLUGIN.

      Goto line no 524 -    CALL FUNCTION 'MODX_FUNCTION_ACTIVE_CHECK' and then debug from there.

      and check lt_textelements and check the details how it is populated etc.

         READ TEXTPOOL 'SAPLXM02' INTO lt_textelements LANGUAGE sy-langu.
          IF sy-subrc EQ 0.
            READ TABLE lt_textelements WITH KEY id = 'I'
                                                key = '101'
              INTO l_text101.
            READ TABLE lt_textelements WITH KEY id = 'I'
                                                key = '111'
              INTO l_text111.
          ENDIF.

    Hi Anu,

    Since all TAB information (text) are coming from the SPRO setting.

    Kindly check the SPRO->Material Management->Purchasing->Purchase Order- Setting.

    There is setting about Text For Purchase Order,

    May be there you can get, how to change the Text of any of the TAB.

    Take the help of any Functional Guy, it can be done through Customizing.

    ABAP Coding is not require.

    Regards.

    Praveer.
