Goto that transaction code, then GOTO --> ITEM --> TEXT, tehn you will find all the item text, then double click on a Item texts, then a Line editor will open, there press GOTO --> HEADER, then a pop-up will open, there you will find all the options, you need to pass these options to the READ_TEXT function module.

For item texts, you need to do the concatinate with 00, then Number, then 0000 then Line item number.

You can go to the text and click details tab below the editor ..

Click GoTo--> Header and you will see the actual parameters that should be passed for the document text to the function module Read_text ..

assign points if it helps.

SAPscript: Read text

In order to process text modules in application programs, all information about a text module must be transferred to internal work areas.

A text is read from the text file or text memory with this function module. It must be described fully by specifying OBJECT, NAME, ID, and LANGUAGE. Generic entries in these parameters are not valid.

When header information and text lines have been read successfully, they are transferred to the work areas HEADER and LINES

So, if the text is not available then what would the system read, there is nothing to read and hence it is getting failed....

So, first maintain the form or text module u want to read and then use this FM.
