    This user parameter is saved immediately as soon as you press OK. 
    If you exit the posting without saving and re-enter the same PO the texts from ALL purchase order items are automatically filled in the Additional Information Short Text field. 

    * Note this is a one time individual user setting. When the field is set, the PO item text will automatically be transferred to Journal Entry Item texts. 


  3. WebGUI tile Post Goods Movement - MIGO.  (Manual solution) 
    Choose Goods Receipt > Purchase Order. 
    Enter your Purchase Order number and press return. 
    Navigate to the item 'Where' TAB.
    Maintain your text in the TEXT field.
