3254029 - Copying Rules for Item Texts in PR and PO


Your requirement is to configure the Item Level Texts in Purchase Orders (POs) and Purchase Requisitions (PRs) (to allow access, lockdown or allow specific access to the Text fields).

You access the specific rules in SSCUI '103136 Define Copying Rules for Item Texts in Purchase Orders', and want to know the specific sequence to allow you to change this for the following:

(For POs)

  • Item text
  • Info record PO text
  • Material PO text
  • Delivery text
  • Info record note
  • MRP Cockpit

(For PRs)

  • Item text
  • Item note
  • Delivery text
  • Material PO text

  1. Using the landing page for POs (in path 1 above) initially there appears to be no selection options, these are all 'grayed out'
  2. Select a single line (multiples cannot be selected) - for this example, we select '03 - Material PO Text', then immediately click on 'Text Linkages'
  3. Click on the 'search' icon to bring up the 'Text Indicator' selection
  4. Here, you can see the individual options


" " (null) - Text automatically adopted in target object (if item references a Material Master, the text is adopted by default, if this is not maintained, the field is open).

* - User  have text adopted in target object (the user  add / remove text here, it will be saved).

N - Text cannot be adopted in target object (meaning, this field will be locked / grayed out, and will be inaccessible the user  change)

Please, make your selection accordantly with your needs, save it and exit.
