Hi All,

In Table T023T there is a field WGBEZ60(Long text describing the material group) and the data element of the field is WGBEZ60.

Requirement is to change the description of the field WGBEZ60.The desription of the field is - Description 2 for the material group.

But the user want as - Description for the material group. He dont want 2 in the description.

we are using this field in the search help of Material group for the transaction ME21N and ME51N.

So please tell me how can we change the description of the field in the Search help.

Use the CMOD transaction. GOTO->Text Enhancements->Data Elements->New. Using this you can maintain your own field label. Try this option.

As search help uses data element , it shows its keyword. So you have to do modification to that keyword.

- Go to CMOD

- from top menu GOTO -> Text enhancements -> Keywords -> Change -> type WGBEZ60 -> change the description -> Save and add it to transport

- now use that data element either on the screen or search help. It will have the descripiton modified.
