increase VTEXT length from V_T179 table

Former Member

Dear gurus,

Hope you can help me. In SD Product Hierarchy, the client requirement is to increase the maximum character length of Description field from 40 characters to 100 characters. This is so the users can type very long descriptions when defining the product hierarchies.

By the way, in SPRO this is the path:

Logistics - General -> Material Master -> Data Relevant to Sales and Distribution -> Define Product Hierarchies -> Maintenance: Prod. Hier. Struc. -> then display V_T179 table.

The table with field VTEXT (Product Hierarchy Description) is V_T179. I can ask BASIS for an access key and simply change the field length of VTEXT char40 to char100 in this SAP standard table, but I don't know the implications. Will that be okay?

Has anyone done this before?

Thank you very much!

why don't you try for some screen exit or user exit to add char of 100 char on the screen after that make this (access key) as final option.
