Calling Text Editor from Basic list to see the long text in text editor


Hi All,

I Have a requirement wherein i need to display the long text after i click on one of the field from basic screen (Short Text Field). By this time i have long text in internal table.

How should i display this text in text editor when user clicks on short text field.

I tried using :

EDITOR-CALL FOR IT TITLE 'Infotype Text for the Employee'


where IT is an internal table.

structure of it is

notes(72) type c..One field only

If i use this in user command i can see the text in text editor but when i click on back button i return back to selection screen and not basic list of the report.

Also i have to use long text field as string but currently i am using only 72 characters. I can not use type string for this field since i am getting syntax error. In that case the text is getting truncated.

Could you please suggest on this issue.
