Guideline for Using 40 Char in Short Text Field of Material Master

49 Views

Dear Experts & Forum Members,

In MM01 while creating a Material Master record (spare part) we need to fill in Basic Data. It has a field known as "Short Text Field " This Field has limitation of 40 characters. This is the same field which has Searched associated with it. This description is what we see when we look for Stock Overview of Material in the Stores through MEMBER.

To use this 40 characters efficiently people usually come up with a guideline so that maximum and meaningful information crucial information for identification of spare part/material is VIEWED when we see it.

For example for an AC Motor the description may look like

*MOTOR AC SQ 100KW 1500 RPM 8P CLA FRXYZ

which describes AC Motor, Squirrel Cage Type, 100 KW, 1500 RPM, 8 Pole, Class A, Frame Size XYZ

Request the forum members to provide / share any guideline they might have come up with to use these 40 characters to describe different spare parts.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards

Vinay
