User ID and PO Texts

When a user creates a purchase order a standard text is being incorrectly proposed/copied at the header level. This is happening for all the purchase orders the user creates. What connections are there between a user ID and texts that I could look at to solve this issue?

Thanks - points will be rewarded.

    When the user creates a PO, a standard text gets copied into several of the PO header text fields. The text is not maintained in the vendor, material, customer, or customer-material master.

    • I had once a case with a phantom text:

      This text was maintained in a vendor master. The text-id was removed from vendor master maintenace in customizing. So nobody could see this text when in vendor master, but as the text was available in table STXH and STXL (tables that hold long text) and could be found with a valid key it was pulled into the PO's.

      But this happened to any user using this vendor.

    Hi<

    Their is no connection between USer ID and the PO header test.

    Check with diff user ID for the same Part and same vendor and plant.

    Vendor master msut have been updated with sone text, which will be flowing into PO header level.

    Check the vendor master, purchasing data, extras, text..

    Thanks,

    The text is maintained in VD02. For a particular customer and sales area the text is shown as only proposing in one category. Yet when the PO is created via ME21N, that text is prosposed in that category as well as a number of others on the PO header texts.
