1638034 - Form Template Name Does Not Change With Log-on Language


You copy a standard form template, and define a new name for the new copied template. You think that the template name should be changed with logon languages. But when you logon with another language, you find that the template name does not change with the log on language.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Application and User Management 
  2. Go to the view Form Template Maintenance  find the form template you want to copy
  3. Press the button Copy and select As New Variant or As New Template
  4. Give the template a new name and press the button OK

Then, when you logon the system with another language to check the the template, you will find that the new copied form template name does not change with the log on language as expected.


In SAP Bydesign systems, the user defined templates name cannot be translated into another language automatically.


If you want to copy a new form template and want the template name changes with the logon languages, you can only copy standard templates with As New Variant and do not modify the name generating by systems.
