    Dear Jugen/Murli,

    Thanks for your reply. My problem is not to print PO in FR language or uploading material description in FR language. I can do this.

    My problem is as follows-

    a. A material is already uploaded with material description in two languages- English(EN) and French (FR) in additional data tab of material master.

    b. same material is being used by french speaking and english speaking users. While doing transaction eg creating PO french user should see the material description in french and englisg user should see the description in English.

    But in the system by default , material description is coming only in english in PO. How french users can see material description in their own language?

    Hope the issue is now clear. Can anybody kindly suggest?

    Regards,

      Hi Santosh,

      Try login in local language & check. Also check entries that are maintained in MAKTX table.

      If multi language entries are maintained while uploading material master, 2 entries can be seen in this table.

      If you login in local language, hope this problem can be solved.

      Regards

    the text in the PO is pulled from material master based on the communication language entered in the vendor master.
