Text name is in gray mode

Hi Adi,

Yes, you can do it. You want when you will create the billing document then a default text appear in billing document.

Doesn't matter, it was in order or not.

Ok, follow the steps given below

open the T-code "SO10" --> Give "Text Name (Suppose YT11)" & Text ID & Language --> Click at "Create" --> On next screen --> Go to (Menu) --> change editor --> Write the text which you want default in billing document.

Go to VOTXN --> Select billing header(Assume, you want in header) --> Click at "Change" Tab --> Double click at "Access sequence" --> Select your Access sequence --> then double click at "Access sequence for Text ID's" --> CLick at "new entries" --> Fill up the required entries --> In the last of the line (Absolutely last column) --> In the feild Text name "Give your text name" --> save it.

My question

Hi All,

I have set up text id and assigned to Text procedure for my billing document header as header text.

Can we populate (automatic) or default text whencreate a sales invoice

If possible please let me know.

I tried above option and but here the problem is Text name is in gray mode.

    Hi Adi,

    I have tried it and succesfully setup in the system.

    Follow the instruction (I assume you already created text name in SO10)

    Go to VOTXN --> Double click at "Text procedure assignment" --> Check what "Text determination procedure" assigned to your billing type

    Now docuble click at "Textprocedure" --> Select your "Text determination procedure" --> double click at "Text ID's in Textprocedure"

    See what access sequence assigned to your "Form Header"

    Now double click at "Access sequences" --> Select your access sequence --> double click at "Access sequence for Text ID's"

    Finally you are going to assign yout text name with your access sequence

    Click at new entries --> Give "SeNo." --> text object "TEXT" --> ID "ST" (It should be the same which you created in SO10) --> Language "EN" (It should be the same which you created in SO10)

    Upto this point also the feild "Text name" will be greyed out

    you have to "Press Enter"

    System will give you the warning, "Choose the key from the allowed namespace"

    Ignore it and enter again

    Then you can see the feild Text name will be open and you can enter the text name there, which you created in SO10.

    Then try to create your billing document and see the Header.

    Hope this helps, Please try and revert back with your findings,
