First 40 characters of long text in IA07 is not getting displayed

I am working on a development to save long text for operations in IA07 transaction as shown in attached screen-shot:

For this, I have used SAVE_TEXT FM. When SAVE_TEXT FM is executed, all the lines are saved as long text.

But,initial 40 characters of line 1 are not visible.

For e.g, if 10 lines are passed to SAVE_TEXT, then initial 40 characters of line 1 are not visible, other lines are visible as shown in below screen-shot:

The initial 40 characters of line 1 in Long Text is also displayed in Operation description field which is not getting

displayed for my case as shown in below screen-shot:

However, when I execute READ_TEXT FM, it fetches the entire long text in internal table including initial 40 characters of 1st line as shown in attached screen-shot.

Please help on this.

    In many technical objects the first line of long text are copied to and from short text of object. You did not use a BAPI to create the object but the SAVE_TEXT FM so I suppose short text and first

    characters of long text are no more related, also the flag "long text exists" may be initial, so behavior of display program unpredictable (here it seems to considers you changed short text to initial value and overwrite the first line of long text ?)


    Hint: there are KBA in OSS as 1982719 - Texts cannot be displayed - Usage of function module SAVE_TEXT.
