Custom Infotype LongText editor fetches the previous record's text when Creating a new one


Hello all,

I'm building a custom infotype 9041, of time constraint '3', and Subtype is always empty. I have already warned my managers that this is not the correct way to build it but we are on tight schedule and this darned infotype has already come a really long way, so unfortunately I cannot make another drastic change right now.

Anyway, I enter PA30 and click Create (F5). Then, I press F9 to maintain the additional LongText, but the editor is not empty - it displays text that was saved for the previous record. My guess is that because the previous record has SEQNR = '000', and because the program doesn't know yet what's the SEQNR of the new record, as I haven't saved the new record yet, the LongText editor uses the new record's temporarily-empty SEQNR when importing the text from the cluster, and thus it finds the text of the previous record.

Do you know if there is a way to fix it? I don't want to change a lot of SAP Standard process if at all, but this is a major problem which I couldn't find any solution to.

Thank you very much!
