Display Material description in PR creation ME51N aside from short text

Hi SAP experts,

I just want to know if it is possible to display the material description column in purchase request creation aside from its short text.

Short text is modifiable, although it can be locked but we don't want it that way. We just want to add column for material description.

Upon changing layout material description is not available in the selection and upon navigating

SPRO MM>PURCHASING>PURCHASE REQUITION >DEFINE SCREEN LAYOUT AT DOCUMENT LEVEL>

material description is in the list of fields.

If it is possible please help me on how to configure it. Hoping for your positive response.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi James,

    One suggestion is to keep PR short text in display mode in configuration and Get it Include a new field which is not used/involved in other functions (like vendor material number field, etc).

    Go to PR >> Item Overview >> Choose Layout >> Change Layout >> choose the required unused field (Eg: vendor material number)

    As a disciplinary, User needs to enter changed short text(if any) in that field and do other dependent modifications(print, ..) accordingly.

    Material Description comes and get saved in short text .. I do not think you are able to bring it but you should also look at PR layout if you have added the field to bring it front of the screen.
