Entering Texts in Info Records

I am not able to enter the PO text in " Purchase Order Text" in info record. It is in greyed out.

I able to only enter the text in "Info Memo" in info record.

In PO print only the purchase order text get printed not the Info record memo. As per below note, no new text id can be created for info record

Note 33585 - Text type maintenance: Item texts for info record

My issue is I buy one material from several vendors. Have one material master record. For every vendor there are special instructions for the same material which differs from vendor to vendor. Hence I cannot maintain in Material master those texts either in Basic data texts or in purchase order text tab in material master. These instructions are required to be printed in PO for each vendor.

The other option I thought was to maintain these texts in PIR. But in PIR , " Purchase Order Text" is greyed out, info memo cannot be printed and other restriction is as per sap note where new texts cannot be created.

Can anybody suggest what is the way out? Can Purchase Order Text in PIR can be set to user entry where I can enter and type my own texts?

I have checked all the configure but could not find any way out.

Please help.

    You can customize, how your PO Text is copied from the info records in the following path:

    SPRO --> IMG --> Materials Management --> Purchasing --> Purchasing Info Record --> Text for Purchasing Info Records --> Define Copying Rules

    Here as shown below you can choose any one of the options to have the data fetched to your PO:

    how does your text customizing look?

    check in OLME > info records > info record texts > copy rules....
