MM01 --> Edit --> Long TexT --> Create


I have requirement to store Long text in Material Master. All my standard Basic Data Text, PO Text, Inspection Text etc is taken over for other reasons. Now I need to create a Custom Text . I am trying to use the option in MM01 --> Edit --> Long Text ---> Create

However this option is greyed out. Can any one tell how to enable this.

If I enable can user create Long text. Where can we configure long text.

Any clue will be helpful.

    You may need to create new long text type.

    Look into this same discussion

    There is no provision to create an own text type for materials

    the text types are stored in table TTXID

    and if you enter this table in SM30 and click Customizing then you can see many IMG tasks to create new text types but none for the material master.

    This does not necessarily mean that you can't do it at all, but it means it is not foreseen and you probably get plenty of work to enable it, where creating the ID itself is probably the easiest step.

    You need to add it to screen, you need code to maintain and store this text and to retrieve it in MM02 and MM03. And as it has to be assumed that this is not a stand alone text that can only be seen in the material master, you also need copy rules to adopt this text to any other process.
