Did you try to find a solution on your own?

When I am too lazy to click through screens to look at order texts in DEV/QA, I just use BAPISDORDER_GETDETAILEDLIST.

There are probably far more efficient ways to do that and your local ABAP developer could point them out to you, but for my use case (simple checks for a single document done by a functional consultant)- it is not too shabby.

Hi Thanks for revert but i am end user need to understand at my end if i can able to pull it from my own without using ABAP expert.


Since you are an end user, then why ask the question in an Internet forum instead of contacting your in-house functional consultant?

He/she probably knows your business processes and implemented solutions and can provide you with relevant advice.

Speaking from a functional consultant's perspective: if I receive a question from a business user with the details, which you provided, I would not be able to assist, because there is no background - when this is needed, why and by whom.


I Checked with the consultant but got below revert "We do not have any existing table/functionality in place to view Sales order Text "

I explored over internet that STXL and STXH tables are used to pull. Just wanted to check if this i can use to pull and how .


What is the reason for this wish to see sales order text?

One can display them from VA03, but usually they are meant for printouts.

You mentioned WH message and internal note - probably these are important for the logistics department.

I suppose, that both texts are copied from the sales order to the delivery and are used for specific print forms.

Is this not sufficient for your purposes?

You need to be more patient with consultants and rephrase your questions in an understandable manner :)

Explain to your consultant the process flow and why you need the texts, then ask for solution how to perform the process in the most efficient way, it is best not to ask 'how do I extract data from tables'.

One more idea - many years ago, I was asked to extract long texts from several hundred objects and it was an emergency situation. We had no budget for development, neither did I have the authorizations and the knowledge to create a custom program, so I just made an AutoIt script. :)


For the end user the short answer is - you can't do this.
