Reason code text (BSEG-SGTXT) transferred in FB05.

I am 6.0 version. I am applying payment difference in transaction codes FEBA and FB05. When I put the reason code (BSEG-RSTGR: Screen 0331) for a residual item, the previous text is overwritten by reason code text (BSEG-SGTXT). It seems this is the way to go. But my users don't want this to happen.

As per OSS notes 124080 below. It says after 4.6, whenever the reason code is changed, its text is automatically posted. What do i now? Should I remove this notes 124080. Please let me know. Its very important.






If you specify a (new) reason code for a payment difference which exists in an item when changing a posted document (Transactions FB02, FB09), the respective text is not transferred into the item text.

Additional key words

Reason code, payment difference, T053R, T053S, BSEG-SGTXT, BSEG-RSTGR, MF05LI00

Cause and prerequisites

This was not programmed.


This is corrected as of Release 4.6A.

If you do not want the respective (new) text to be transferred when the reason code is changed, insert the source code which is specified as an alternative in the second or third correction instructions (selection: Changes/objects not contained in SAP standard"). Here, implement the second correction instructions, if your system does not contain the Statements that are marked with 'Note 211381'. If the system contains Note 211381, use the third correction instructions.

Implement the advance correction as described in the attachment.

    Before removing the OSS note, Please check with the users it is possible it will be required by few divisons.

    and if you want to block it you can try with enhancement point and you can restrict it for some company code.

    Hope this will help.

    With best regards,
