Post update of FI Text (SGTXT) field for external use (*)

0 Kudos


in FI data for my client, Text (SGTXT) field was regulary updated for each document. However, my client didn't knew this SAP rule:

“Line item texts can be used internally and externally. To be able to

distinguish between these, you must begin texts for external use with

"*". These texts can then be printed on all correspondence, dunning

notices, payment advice notes, etc. The asterisk is removed when the

text is printed.”.

so now as result, these texts *can't* be printed on all correspondence documents.

Can this behavior of system be disabled somewhere in configuration, so Text (SGTXT) field *can* be printed on all correspondence, *without* placing "*" sign before begining of texts?

Thank you very much in advance for prompt reply!

All the best.

Hello Sam,

Is it not possible for your client to send the data with *xxx* ? If they cannot send the data, you can set substitution rules to add * * in the beginning and end of the Text field. Then, this can be printed normally on all the correspondence documents.

Please comment your view on this.
