    Dear Corina,

    Material Description is stored both normal as well as in upper case in table MAKT.

    MAKTX - Material description

    MAKTG - Material description in upper case for matchcodes

    You can use MAKTG field of table MAKT.

    However, you can covert lowercase description into upper case by the following statement:

    translate makt-maktx to upper case.

    Hope this will help.

    Regards,

    Naveen.

      Dear Corina,

      You will have to implement a proper BAdi/Enhancement which will convert the Material Description from lower to upper case.

      You would just need to use translate statement of ABAP as mentioned in my earlier post.

      Please check this sample program from other thread to find BADI and enhancement for a given transaction code. You just need to create a custom program in your system by cut and paste below codes.

      REPORT ZTEST.

      Alternatively, you can do the following:

      1. For what ever transaction u want the enhancement .. just check for the System-->status (menu) and find out the PROGRAM name....

      2. Double click on to the program name and go inside the program (Abap editor)

      3. Search for "Call Customer-function " ... and u'll get some search results .. If u get results then u have enhancement in that tcode .....

      4. Then it actually calls a Function module .... copy the Function module name .... go to SE80 (object navigator) click on "Repository Information system" then Customer Enhancements .... Give the Function module name in the "Components" field and click Execute ....

      ull get a list of Enhancements related to that Componene....

      5. Choose which ever enhancement will suit ur business need ..

      6. Go to CMOD... create a project .... assign ur enhancement ... and then code ur logic.... activate ur enhancement in CMOD ....... Ur Buisness need will be solved...

      For a user exit......

      Finding whether there is any User Exit or not for tcode VA42

      1. For what ever transaction u want the user exit .. just check for the System-->status (menu) and find out the PROGRAM name.... ( The program name would be for our scenario "SAPMV45A" )

      2. Double click on to the program name and go inside the program (Abap editor)

      3. Search for the word "USEREXIT" .... u ll find all the user exits in the search result .. and find ur's then ...
