Is there a way to see the description of a custom field added through an append of a standard table?

A programmer has added an append field to table MARA to be used in pricing conditions. There is a check table associated with this new field with a key field and a description. When then added the new field in a pricing table and then applied it to a pricing access sequence. When we use the field in a pricing condition, we are able to see the key field and description in the drop down but then the description does not appear on the screen. Is there a way to see the description of a custom field added through an append of a standard table.

    You can use the RTTS-functionality in SAP ABAP to get the "Type" and others ...

    See the Wiki : link

    See another good example on basically the same Question : link

    (You could provide the APPEND-STRUCTURE as your referencing point so you don't need to go through the whole Standard Table)

    Adding field to MARA has nothing to do with the access sequence configuration. If memory serves, for those the field must be added to the pricing communication structures, which are separate dictionary objects. This topic has been covered at length on SCN and other sites, use Google.

    If you've done that and don't see a description when you go to maintain pricing conditions then either it was done incorrectly or there is a bug in your system. In the first case it's impossible to answer on SCN without all the details (none provided). In the second case you need to work with the SAP support.

    Or better yet - just don't use custom fields. Those are pain in the back to add and maintain. There are customizable attributes in material master that can also be used in pricing.
