  • When updating the long text on a Notification within SAP GUI (Transaction IW22), the previously entered long text is locked and cannot be changed. 
  • This is the expected behaviour.
  • When you attempt the same change using the Web UI app "Change Maintenance Notification" it is possible to change or delete the exiting long text.
  • However, any changes to the existing long text are not saved and when you access the Notification again, the original long text remains.
