Copy text from customer master to reference contract and sales order


I have a request from users to add two fields that exist in ref contract/sales order to customer master so it is maintained there and then copied to subsequent docs (ref contract and sales order)

The text should be copied to reference contract if one is created. If no reference contract, then the text should be copied to sales order directly from the customer master.

Currently, we have copy control in place, where if these two fields are maintained in reference contract, they are copied to sales order. We want to keep this functionality as well.

I have created the two required text types for customer master sales view- KNVV and setup in the text determination procedure. Then, I went into the sales document text procedure, and created object KNVV with the new text type for the access sequences. The access sequence for both text types already exist since they are copied from ref contract to sales order. So I setup a new object within the same access sequence.

However, upon testing, the text is not copied from customer master to reference contract ot customer master to sales order. Is there any additional configuration required? Do I need to change the sequences above?

Thank you

    There is a text determination log in the sales order, which you can use for troubleshooting.

    It is accessible from Goto->Header->Texts, then you click on Display log button.

    • I assume that no text was determined from a preceding document and that you are testing with new documents.

      Is the new text maintained for the right partner function from VOTXN? There is also language in VOTXN, which could be a reason why the text is not found.

      This is just a speculation, since the screenshot from the configuration does not include the full details and you forgot to upload the text determination log. It will be best if you can add it to your original question as an edit.

      A screenshot from VOTXN with all these details is not an easy task, but can you try to find the exact line from table TTXZI and upload what is visible in SE16 for it?
