Travel Expense Comments - Stored Where???

Former Member

I am working with travel exepnses that are created using the TRIP transaction. I need to find where the information is stored to extract, the one piece that I am missing is the comments for the exepnse items. I have tried using the SaveText and GetText functions with no luck. I have even looked at the STXH table with no luck. I also, ran a trace, still no luck. I am thinking that the data may be stored in some HR cluster. Would anyone out there be able to help. I would greatly apprciate it.

I am not sure if this is correct but try cluster

PCL1(TE). You might be able to get more details if you look at the bapi BAPI_TRIP_GET_DETAILS.

The comments for the expense items is stored in TE cluster table EDITOR. Run transaction 'PRTE - Details of a trip' to see how data is stored in this cluster. Reading this data directly is not straight-forward. Look at include rpc1te00 and macro rp-imp-c1-te. It is also returned by FM: HRTRV_IF_GET_TRIP in the TEXT table.

I tried to view HRTRV_IF_GET_TRIP to change the message that appears after clicking on SAVE and SEND on our Travel & Expenses Tasks via the Portal. We want to change the standard message 'Travel & Expesnes' to 'CCDl'

I also checked the Dialog and Travel Expenses Control on IMG, but could not get enough information on where to make the change.

Don Miller,

I could not view the T&E cluster table Editor somehow - it stated, 'Table Editor is not active in the Dictionary.
