    Hai,

    You can see the length of character for material description in SE12 - Enter the table MAKT - Click the display tab. For the field MAKTX - Material description short text - SAP defined length is 40.

    Hi Balaji,

    the material master description allow 40 characters.

    in MM01 or MM02 you can count them or

    take the field name, in se11 check for the fields info and check for data element and its length.

    Thx,

    MJ

    Hi,

    Go to SE11, put table name MAKT then enter.

    You get the length of the field MAKTX.
