Description field for billing plan date items

Dear all,

I have to add a free description field for billing plan date ítems in VA01/VA02. In table FPLT I have founded field DESCR Billing Plan Item Description which meets the requirements but I haven't been able to find any billing plan screen or interface where this field can be updated. Does anyone know how and from can this field be updated? Which are the available options to include this field in VA01/VA02?

Thanks in advance.

  • can you just switch to the attributes tab from your screenshot to verify last change and its date. I don't have that element either, also not the other fields that are shown in the screenshot of the FPLT table. What is your system? S4HANA?

  • There is nothing like that in ECC 6.0. As a matter of fact, this has been frequently asked on SCN and other SAP forums + brought up with SAP in the customer groups to have something like that in the billing plan. The answer so far was "not feasible". So I'm also guessing either you're not in ECC 6.0 or have some kind of add-on.

    Since there are currently different versions of SAP ERP available, kindly specify yours in the original question. If not specified, most people will assume ECC 6.0.

  • Looks like S4/HANA with FI-RA, but I have no access to such system now to verify...

    Yes, we are running S/4 HANA. I've checked in an ECC system and this field does not exist in table FPLT. Program GOAL_SLS_CREATE_SALES_ORDER does not exist either.

    I'll try to search for new functionality in S/4 HANA in case i found any related info but I haven't had any success so far.

    • Try tagging your question with a S4HANA tag in addition to the ones, which you have added. I know, there are fewer active members running S/4 productively, but this might increase your chances to reach the right audience and receive better replies.
