Procedure documentation Entering Text  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

For each vendor, you can enter explanatory texts. You enter central information under general data, and accounting-specific texts, such as "information on withholding tax", on company code level.

The text types which are relevant will be specified during system setting. For each text type, you can create a new text in a different language.

Enter text about the vendor as follows:

  1. From the menu bar while entering a vendor master record, choose Details ® Texts.
  2. A window appears, in which you can enter text.

  3. Select one of the suggested text types and enter text in the column Line 1.
  4. To enter the text in a language other than your logon language, specify the key for the other language in the column Lng.

    The symbol * in front of a line signifies that the text has already been edited.

    When this symbol is at the end of a line, it means that there is more text for this text type than can fit into a single line.

    In order to add text in a different language to a particular text type, place the cursor on the relevant text type and choose Edit ® Create text. Then you can enter the language key and the text for it.

  5. Choose Edit ® Detail text to call up the text editor. The editor allows you to enter any length of text.
  6. Before quitting the text editor, choose Text ® Save.
  7. Choose Goto ® Back.
  8. The initial screen for text entry appears. The first line of your text is displayed.

  9. Choose Goto ® Back once more in order to quit the window for text entry.

You return to the screen at which you started. The system stores your entries when you save the vendor's master data.
