Field Selection Key in PO - SPRO -Problem after Upgrade to EHP7

Dear Experts,

Our Sandbox system is running with EHP4 and we had tested the following configuration and working fine.

We had changed the "Short Text" to "Display" under field selection group "Basic Data,Item" for the field selection keys AKTH and AKTV. The effect of this change was, If we create a PO with any document type and if the material code is supplied, then the "Short Text" was disply only and If the material code is not supplied for e.g. Account assignment category K,P,F etc, the "short text" field was in editable mode.

But now, when we have upgraded the system from EHP 4 to EHP7, when we do the same configuration in the live system landscape, the "short text" field is only in "Display" mode irrespective of the account assignment category.

Can Someone please explain whats happening here or how can i make system to behave the same way as it is behaving in "Sandbox".

    In standard, there is no field selection for PO item level based on account assignment category. The field selection can be at document type level / transaction code level / item category level. Please check the item category specific field selection keys (PT*).

    Else, check whether any enhancements were affecting standard behavior.

    • Yes, Indeed. I have managed to find the solution by doing the following.

      1. Made "Short Text" as "Display Only" under "AKTH-Create" field selection key.

      2. Made "Material Description" "Display Only" under "AKTV-Change" field selection key.

      3. For the Tcode category i.e. ME21,ME21N, ME22, the "Short Text" is optional

      4. For the field selection key which is assigned to the document type "Short Text" is Optional.

      Now, If the material code is not passed, the "Short Text" field is enabled to input value , else the field is display only.

      The Query is closed.
