    You probably did not delete anything. See OSS note 954372, and do an OSS note search for others.

    I've used this program before when the standard text config seemed OK, but it just wasn't working.

    For my puroposes, RVTEXT will "clean up" any bogus stuff in the text control if you 've done a lot of config and the system is somehow, intenrally, confused

    Good Afternoon,

    If you have access to OSS notes, please see note: 574580

    Here is some further information on the report RVTEXTE:

    "If the wrong text determination occurs randomly, then most likely that

    in your system there exists so called "dummy texts".

    These texts (in database table STXH) have a TDNAME = X*.

    Normally during sales document creation the texts get dummy names (= X*)

    which are later replaced by the correct names (which contain the

    document number) when the document is saved. For some (often unknown)

    reasons these dummy texts are written to the database and then cause

    problems. To delete dummy texts you should run report RVTEXTE. This

    report is useful and it is always good to run it from time to time.

    RVTEXTE does not delete valid texts from your documents or from the

    master records. It only deletes dummy or phantom text entries that

    should not be in your documents."

    Please check if in your system you have this latest version. Please see

    OSS note 413096 for the latest versions.

    To run the report:

    1. firstly, with flag X in the function Field. This will delete all

    phantom/dummy text appearing in sales orders.

    X flag = delete all dummy texts.

    2. secondly, with flag Y in the function field. This regenerates the

    text configuration making sure everything is active.

    Y flag = cleanup of text procedures and access sequences in all

    clients.

    Please note that the above procedure will not delete any real text for

    sales orders, only the phanton texts.

    I hope you find this helpful!
