Retail Text Still Showing Even After Removal

Hi Gurus,

One of my customers wanted to add retail texts, so that's exactly what we did. Some time later, they changed their minds!

I have followed the retail text removal documentation from and when I call transaction MM03, the field "Material" is shown.

However, and here lies the problem, when I call transaction SE16 and view table MARA it all looks okay until I change to the ALV Grid Display when all of a sudden, the "Material" column changes to "Article".

Is there any way of removing the texts completely so that Material is no longer replaced with Article?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Hi Matt,

    To confirm whether the text replacement has been carried out successfully, you can check the definition of Objects in ABAP dictionary.

    Txn se11 -> Table Mara -> check the description of MATNR .

    If description is Material Number instead of Article Number, then you can conclude that reversal of text replacement was successful.

    You can repeat the above steps for WERKS (plant).

    Since you are having problem with ALV grid, it could be an issue with the List Variant not with DDIC objects.
