QM01 Error - Field 'Description' must still be filled

Hello all,

we want to create a new notification in QM01.

When we hit the save button, we get this message:

Field 'Description' must still be filled

Message no. IW464


The field &1 has been defined as a required entry field in your company, but is still empty.


Enter the required data in the field &1.

Now the description field is grayed out so I am not able to enter any text in here.

What can I do?

      sorry my last message got cut


      I checked OIAL and the description field VIQMEL-QMTXT is the only one required. If I set it to unrequired, the error doesn't come up anymore when I hit the save button in QM01, but I am still not able to enter a desciption in QM01.

      There is no description field for me under the subject tab, maybe thats an programming error. I have tried to apply note 1089458 but it didn't help.

    Dear Anne

    Please make the description field as " INPUT". Also make sure that you have maintained screen area 031in Screen Structure for Extended View for the notification type in the config to get the description field
