Transfer document header text from billing document to FI document

Dear all,

Where do I specify that the document header text out of the billing document should be transferred to the corresponding FI document?

Currently, the FI document header text (BKPF-BKTXT) remeans blank after transfer from billing document. We need this field to be filled in, but I haven't found how to have this filled in.

In copy control from sales doc to billing doc, there is the possibility to transfer the Reference number & Assignment, but nothing about document header texts.

Some say that it would only be possible via coding, but anybody has any idea if it might be possible via standard SAP?

Many thanks!

Best regards

    We also had a bit same requirement, which is to copy the billing header text to FI item text (BSEG-SGTXT). The solution we took is to use FI Substitution (t-code GGB1), so that every time a FI document created from SD... the substitution reads the billing header text and put it in the FI item text. I think the same method could be used for FI header text (BKPF-BKTXT). Below is the solution for your reference.


    Document Type = 'RV' AND Reference <> '' AND

    ( Transaction code = 'VF01' OR Transaction code = 'VF02' OR

    Transaction code = 'VF03' )


    Using exit which coding is as below.


    *& Form u900


    • Copy Billing Header Text to SGTXT


    • -->P_SGTXT FI Item Text


    FORM u900 USING p_sgtxt TYPE bseg-sgtxt.

    DATA: lv_name TYPE thead-tdname,

    lt_line TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF tline,

    lw_line TYPE tline.

    lv_name = bkpf-xblnr.



    id = 'Z001'

    language = sy-langu

    name = lv_name

    object = 'VBBK'


    lines = lt_line[]


    id = 1

    language = 2

    name = 3

    not_found = 4

    object = 5

    reference_check = 6

    wrong_access_to_archive = 7

    OTHERS = 8.

    IF sy-subrc EQ 0.

    READ TABLE lt_line

    INTO lw_line

    INDEX 1.

    • In Billing Header Text, the sign '&' (ampersand) is automatically

    • added some characters so it becomes '<(>&<)>'.

    • The logic below is to fix that issue.

    REPLACE ALL OCCURRENCES OF '<(>' IN lw_line-tdline WITH space.

    REPLACE ALL OCCURRENCES OF '<)>' IN lw_line-tdline WITH space.

    p_sgtxt = lw_line-tdline.

    Use the BTE event 1120 ....Goto FIBF tcode and in the menu Environmnet ->Process->execute and u will find BTE 001120

    IN SE37 u2013 Function Builder. This is the function module (SAMPLE_PROCESS_00001120) you will need to copy into a "Z" or u201CYu201D name function module for your coding

    In Function Builder (transaction SE37), enter the new "Z" or u201CYu201D function module. Click on the Change button.

    enter the code and then Save and activate the function module

    Create a product in BF24 specify as Z...

    Now assign the function module u201CZ_SAMPLE_PROCESS_00001120u201D TO product in BF44 TCODE ..Save it..


    use the FM exit EXIT_SAPLV60B_008, there is no BKTXT field but u can appned it to structure accit...and try
