No display/ change functionality in ME53N when opening requistion via IW33 transaction

Dear All,

I have a requirement that while opening an order(work orders) through IW33 and navigating to the transaction ME53N (Purchase requisition ) (on double clicking purchase requisition number : ME53N is displayed ).But I am not able to see ME53N display/change button while opening ME53N via IW33 transaction .

If I open this a fresh tcode ME53N and entering the purchase requisition number there then I am getting that display/change functionality in the application toolbar of the ME53N screen .

So why this display/change functionality not available through IW33 ---> ME53N .Please guide how I can achieve this functionality opening ME53N via IW33 .Please guide is there any note that needs to be implemented or it is a standard feature .

    Hello Deep,

    Previously the IW32 transaction can open ME53N and show the display/change icon. That was considered to be a bug and corrected with note 2402050. The new logic is also explained in KBA 2561562.

    In function module MASTER_DATA, 'ME_DISPLAY_PURCHASE_DOCUMENT' is called with parameter

    I_DISPLAY_ONLY = 'X', so the change icon is hidden. If you would like to show the change icon, you can set

    I_DISPLAY_ONLY to blank in function module MASTER_DATA before calling 'ME_DISPLAY_PURCHASE_DOCUMENT', but please note that that change is modification.

    Best regards,
