Change language in purchase order

Hi,

is there any way to change the language in a purchase order (created with ME21N).

This field under communication is only displayable.

Is the a way to make this field changeable. I have searched in SPRO and SAP OSS but cannot find any way.

Thanks.

Regards, Dieter

2052687 - Purchase order language field cannot be changed in ME22N

MN05 cannot be used to change the language, see OSS note Note 89899 - Output into docmt language


Since this is a discussion from 2011 which got resurrected with incorrect information today  I add the notes and locked the discussion.

Hi Dieter,

I think that will be driven by the language you've set in the vendor master data only.

Do you mean "Language" Field in Communication Tab?

You could configured in the below IMG path:

Materials Management->Purchasing->Purchase Order->Define Screen Layout at Document Level

Choose "ME21N" and click "Details" button, then choose "Administrative data, header" and change "Language" field to "Opt Entry"

Then it could be the reason this field is showed as displayed only in specified order type.

Which order type do you choose in ME21N, if you use "NB" then you could choose "NBF" and repeat the above steps.

From OSS note 300284:

Call Transaction OMF4 and select the line which contains value AKTV in the column for the field selection key.

Then, press pushbutton Details or choose suboption Details in menu Goto.

In the displayed list, position the cursor in the line Administrative data, header and choose suboption Choosein menu Edit.

Now, set the field Language to Opt. entry.

Then, press Back twice and save your entries.

It seems you're in the right path, you just need to change it following AKTV instead of ME21N.

Let us know how it goes. Regards....
