changing the language of PO delivery address

hello all

issue is as follows:

the supplier in our PO is from Italy and the purchasing client (creating the PO) is from China.

when printing the delivery address in the PO, the address country is in Italian and the purchaser wants it in English.

so when I check the tab "delivery address" and I do a preview, I see the logon language but by changing parameters "sending country" to Italy, I can indeed see that the address is in Italian instead of English (CINA instead of CHINA).

I was under the impression that table ADRC contains this information but I cannot find the country fully displayed, just the code. also I understand that it is being formatted by a function module but I guess that this info is stored somewhere!

how can I change this info?

    First of all you need to check what the document language is, it can be seen in ME23N at the PO header data.

    It should usually come from the vendor master communication language, but it is possible to change when creating the PO before any item was entered.

    The long text for the country is not written manually in an address, you usually only enter the country code, and this country code is then converted to the long text of country based on the address rules assigned in country definition  (OY01)
