    MM17 is usually to replace a field value with a new value, which does not make much sense for material master description, if you distribute one new description to 2000 materials, as you expect o have 2000 different descriptions.

    if you want to add a certain character like the TM sign to any of your materials, then you can do this by adding a formula

    alternative is to just do a copy and paste from Excel to the description in MM17

    Please clarify your requirement, then I (or others) can give you a detailed instruction

    • select your field MAKT-MAKTX in MM17 and click the formula button.

      In the pop-up for the formula hit button ABAP.

      Just add a lttle coding above the endform clause like:

      concatenate segment-maktx '®' into X.

      SEGMENT is the "table" that you currently process and X is the field that takes the new value back.

    Hi,

    I tried to change the material description using MM17 , it worked successfully.

    What error message are you getting or are you looking for the steps to be followed for MASS.

    Thanks,
