    Hi Arun,

    check table maktx for the short texts. All other texts are stored in pool and cluster tables. Use fm read_text to read the texts. Hope it helps!

      Hello Arun,

      The various texts for the material (as well as the other objects in SAP) are all sroted in a cluster table in the database.

      The concept of a text-object comes into play here. If you go to the table TTXOT and search for the 'Material texts, sales', you will see that the text-object for the sales-text of the material is <b>MVKE</b>.

      Now go to the table STXL, where the material text is actually stored in various languages ( obviously those that are maintained for that material ). Now this STXL is a cluster table and the data can only be intelligibly retrieved through a IMPORT statement.


      parameters p_matnr type matnr.
      data: temp_text type table of tline with header line,
            where_cond(20) type c.
      data : begin of text_id ,
               tdobject(10) value 'MVKE',
               tdid(4)      value '0001',
               tdspras   value 'D',
             end of text_id.
      concatenate '%'
             into where_cond.
      select single tdname
        from stxl
        into text_id-tdname
       where relid   = 'TX' and
             tdspras = 'E'  and
             tdname like where_cond.
      import tline = temp_text[]
        from database stxl(TX) id text_id.
      write: / sy-subrc.
      loop at temp_text.
        write : / temp_text-tdline.


      The above code fetches the Sales text for a material from the database and displays it on the list.

      Hope this is clear enough.
