SAVE_TEXT function module to update LONG TEXT for material

Former Member

Hi guys..

I need to update the LONG TEXT for existing material.

To go this text: MM02/MM01: material-> next screen-> at bottom-> Basic setting-> you can edit LONG TEXT.

After entring this text i need to perform some manipulation for text and finally it is to be uploaded to SAP.

Note: through BDC, we can not record the LONG TEXT entry. I failed.

So I have decided to update it using FM SAVE_TEXT function module.

How to manipulate TDOBJECT, TDNAME ??

means: this text should be mampped to material number.

What is the relation between MATNR and TDOBJECT / TDNAME??

TDOBJECT = 'MATERIAL' <= Material texts, pur./storage

TDID = 'GRUN' <= Basic data text

TDNAME = material number with leading zeros (like '000000000000012345')

In general, once you look at the long text via the application transaction (e.g. MM03), choose goto -> header and find all details yourself.

TDOBJECT = 'MATERIAL'. TDNAME= matetial number (eg:0000012345) TDID= 'GRUN'.
