Long text not showing up in IW37N

longtext-question.png

When running standard IW37N the long text exist field indicate it exists however the "Long Text" field doesn't show the actual text.

See attached screen shots.

Is this something in config that needs to be turned on?

Thanks

Eli

  • I believe the Long Text was present IN THE PAST but was recently Deleted.
    I get the same behaviour when I update an OrderOperation with some Long Text first :

    • Column "Long Text" = 'X'
    • Column "Long Text exists" = <SY-LANGU>


    When I delete the Long Text :

    • Column "Long Text" = ' '
    • Column "Long Text exists" = <SY-LANGU>


    I'm guessing that is what happened ...


    Kind regards

  • Thats odd Nic, because my ECC6/EHP8 on HANA does not do the same thing.

    It seems to reset the flag if the LT is deleted..

  • Hi Peter

    I know, it certainly is strange.
    Perhaps some kind of inconsistency with these OrderOperations on my DEV/QA-System ...

    Looking into it.

    The line is blank. If you drill into the work order and go to the operations long text, it shows up.

    • Looking at your Screenshots :

      • The OrderOperation has a Operation SHORTTEXT ...
      • ... and the LongText-Icon shows as blank, indicating there is no LongText additionally to the ShortText
      • ... and this shows up when calling the Texts where you see the actual ShortText, but no follow-up Lines, which would be the LongTexts ...


      Again, I suspect some LongTexts (in 'EN' Language) were added at some time in the Past, and were Deleted afterwards. In the SAP-Tables a link to a now blank Text-Element was registered and that's why it is indicated like that is some of the List Reports ...

      Can you verify / test this Behaviour?

    Hello Elisa,

    these two columns are both just indicators.

    The one named "Long Txt Exists" indicates that a longtext exists on order header level (and it even indicates the language), the one named "Long text" indicates that a longtext exists on operation level.

    Kind regards,

    Bernd

    Elisa,

    Is there a blank line with no text?

    Also have a look at the Change Documents: Extras->Document for Order->Changes

    Also try changing to the old editor format via menu: Goto->Change Editor. There might be some control lines in the long text.
