    1.I dont think this is possible as this is a standard SAP requriement.

    2.check the data eleaement -which has the 40 as character lenth.

    so it is not recomended to change it.

    Solution

    3.You can use the ItemLongTEXT - which doesnt have any restriction in the lenght.

    so dont change the standard setting use the itmelONGTEXT this should solve ur issue

    Hi,

    The Component description is copied from Material Master.

    I am not sure about ,increasing its length.

    However u can use the "Item Text field" in item over view screen for Each Bom component.
