    For picking the Text of any document you will have to use the Function Module : READ_TEXT (in T-Code SE37), where :

    ID :- is basically the Text ID

    Name :- is basically document no. for Header Text; and a Combination of Document No. and Item No. for Item Text

    Object:- VBBK for Header, and VBBP for Item

    Take the help of ABAP Consultant.

    Thanks and regards,

    You can use the FM read_text

    you have to give the table names

    VBBK for header

    VBBP for item

    and your text id to the abapper

      The exit is for number range but can be used for creating the validation for text fields. That is if the text field is empty the system will not allow you to save the billing document.

      Read_Text Function module needs to be used to check whether there is any data in the text item or not. Beyond this u need to sit with ABAPer and explain him/her the requirement and he/she should be able to do this. This is a simple requirement to capture.

    Hi Prasanna,

    Check like this .In user exit userexit_number_range in program RV60AFZZ.. In this READ_TEXTfm will come with the required object. It will return text if the user enterd. If it doesnt returns any thing then raise a message.This will trigger while saving invoice time.
