Maintain Text PA - Authorization issue?

Hi experts,

I'm having a problem when updating text in infotypes using "Maintain Text" (F9). Most user's SAP GUI block when trying t access the text window (after clicking Maintain text). SAP GUI just freeze (no message). It's the only time I have got an error like this.

Since some users are able to maintain text, do you think it could be an authorization issue?

Could you please show me which authorization object should be customized to let them to maintain text?

If you think is not an authorization issue, any idea?

I would really appreciate your help since I run out of ideas...

Thank you very much

Chema

    Hi Chema,

    Run SU53 via unsuccessful user IDs and check whether there exists any authorization issues.

    Please also make one of the successful user IDs to login from computers of unsuccessful users.

    This problem may be related to MS Word installation on the PC.

      Hi Dilek,

      thank you for your help. SU53 shows a problem with authorizations for P_ORGXX (R, ,,,,) for people who can't maintain text, but it also show a problem with P_ORGINCON (R,,,,,,,) for people who can.

      I know these two authorization object are related to infotype read/writing, but it is also related to maintain text feature?

      MS Word comment seems a posible explanation, because since SAP GUI blocks should be any local configuration issue, but still all computers has the same version and instalation.

      Thank you again for your help

      Cheers,

    Hi,

    My first guess would be the GUI version or GUI patch level difference between the users.

      Hi SaQ,

      as I told Dilek, indeed it seems a local configuration problem, but all computers have same SAP GUI version (bulk installation). It seems it is affected by frontend editor configuration (new/old), but I still don't know which parameter should I change to solve it.

      Thank you again,

      Cheers,
