I have a problem with asset master data.

When I enter the description of the asset then it is automatically copied to Asset main no. text field.

How could I customize it not to be copied?

Thanks a lot in advance

SAPLAIST is the SAP Program name which provides this functionality. Set ur break point on LAISTF89 INCLUDE under SAPLAIST.

You will find some statements between 19 to 25 lines, which states that if Main number(ANLH-ANLHTXT) status i.e. SDRO is active then check its value if it is initial then copy its value from ANLA-TXT50 description column.


I checked about this functionality under SAP 3.1.. there its not available.....

So its a kind of Gift!!!!! in SAP 6.0....! Enjoy....... it.............

System by default copy the description

However you can enter your own description if needs

If you do not want, delete the field at screen layout level by selecting ""No"" option

If you do not want to enter anything, go to transaction code ANSICHT and select Asset Accounting Master data fields and make it as display and save.
