Display of multiple language descriptions in functional location


Dear Experts,

I have recently noticed a discrepancy in our mySAP ECC 6.0 environment and I am wondering if anyone else has encountered this - or if it is a bug in our system.

I have noticed that when a functional location record is created in one language (Example: ENGLISH) and then viewed from another language (Example: German) there is no short text displayed to the end user. This then forces the German user to either enter a short text description (as it is mandatory in our system) or view the data using IL03.

I noticed that this behavior is quite different from other objects - specifically the equipment master. If the same process is followed for an equipment master - the English description would be displayed as it is the primary language for that record.

Has anyone else seen this behavior in past systems?
