    Hi,

    I think you are trying to change the field PO number under Purchase order data tab,no it's not possible as it will be grayed out.

    Regards,

    Hari Challa.

    Hi,

    Do you want to change PO number field label?

    If you change field label it will effect all the places, wherever this field is used.

    Still you want to change it?

    Regards,

    Chandra

    You can change the Field label in your screen design.

    Goto SE51 for program SAPMV45A and screen 4021. You need to have authorization to change or ask an ABAP'er to do so.

    There goto the Screen layout and you can change the Field text for PO number.
