In Standard SAP , all the material master fields are save din database, and the filed length is predefined and used in many of the tables & programs.

So it it not suggestable to change them as the user likes.

Suhas,

First check with your client if they agree to give you the access key for the same and activate the domain data element and finally update all the tables using SE14

An Alternate to look at is the Sales Text which is maintained on the Sales Org Views. This is the text we use for Printing on our Docuemnts (Production Orders, Purchase Orders, Pick Lists, etc).
