Chinese Description are not displayed in Transaction LT23

Hi Team,

I would like to inquire about the issue regarding SAP language settings. The user login through Logon Language ZH and the material has a ZH translation. The problem lies in transaction code LT23 which still produce EN description. We traced the source of the report and found out that the material description was inherited when a transfer order was created. We tried to make a transfer order on our test system via Logon Language ZH but was met with the error below. We requested the user to give as a step by step screenshot and seen no error in their process under Logon Language ZH. Please do help us in this issue because everytime we made a transfer order, this error occurs.

    Hi Nic,

    Please see image and attached translated version.


    Format Z_SASS_TR Language EN is not active or has an error

    Message number TD422

    diagnosis

    The form assigned to the document is inactive.

    System response

    The format of the form will not be programmed.

    process

    Check if the form exists in the SAP script table maintenance transaction and, if it exists, check for the active version. If the user finds a new entry in the status line of the form maintenance transaction, there is no active version.

    If the selected form does not exist, the existing form is assigned to the user document, or a new one is created that can be used for the document once it is generated.

    Activate a new form with the build function.

    Even if the form has an 'active' status, an error may occur. The error message is the result of an extended check, which was not available the last time the table was activated. In this case, select the menu option Table -> Check -> Define and complete the action specified in the result message.

    A typical error: the text element in the window... does not contain a name. In this case, display the text elements and ensure that each text element (format column /E) has a name for print program addressing. The default text elements (from the beginning, no /E) are automatically addressed and processed. The text element is followed by the name to enter /E.

    Also, the real main issue here is that the LT23 produces an English material description while in ZH logon. Please see images below:


    Here is the image with the translated description in MM03:

    First off : You only encounter this in the mentioned Transaction? Or a global Problem?

    The Message in the Screenshot Says "Format Z_SASS_TR Language ZH is not active or has an error", yet you state the Message is "Format Z_SASS_TR Language EN is not active or has an error". So the issue is linked to a generated Custom Form ...

    In any case : You need to revert to Technical people (IT, ABAP Developer) ...
    Check the Form (SAPScript?) in Trx."SE71" whether it is created or translated correctly into your desired Language. Check and Activate the Form to make sure the Form is generated and activated in the desired Language. In need be use Trx."SE76".

    The ABAP Developer can verify if the Form has issues, from being Inactive, to not having a Translation in your desired language (Cfr. Translation of Texts in "SE63").
