    Hello James,

    Unfortunately the way this text is stored is not so straightforward. It is stored generically as a long text, so for each "Description" there is a text header in table STXH and the lines in table STXL (which are stored as a cluster, so are not legible in transaction SE16).

    If you need some way to get the texts for the various objects in a project, you could do so by using the methods that are used in the standard. E.g. you could write a program which implements the same logic seen in CL_CGPL_TEXT_PROCESSING  method READ_TEXT_SIMPLE (which returns a text for a given object GUID). But then again you might be better off just using the available BAPIs which also return the long text (e.g. BAPI_BUS2172_GET_DETAIL for projects).

    Best regards
    Francesco
