Output Types > Replacement of text symbols: program, FORM routine needed



I'm searching for a program and/or FORM routine that will replace &EKKO-EBELN& and &EKKO-LIFNR& (from Mail title and texts) .

Example: Hochland Rahmenvertrag &EKKO-EBELN& / &EKKO-LIFNR& Replaced with: Hochland Rahmenvertrag 4600012345 / 712888

I have problems filling the eMail subject when creating a Outline agreement (Apllication EV)... 😔

For purchase orders it's working without FORM routine (Apll. EF) !!!

SAP provides this (empty) fields in transaction NACE (or NACT).

Output type > Detail

General Data > Replacement of text symbols

appreciating any hints in this topic

The title of the corresponding output type is "Purchase order no. VBAK-VBELN on SY-DATUM" (put a "&" before and after the fields). In the outbound message you therefore have the output "Purchase order no. 4711 on 01/01/2000". The field VBAK-VBELN has been filled with global data by a form routine. ...
