How to check if a user fills a header text in billing invoice

Hi everybody and thanks in advance.

My consultant wants to oblige all users to fill a header text when they create the billing invoice (vf01).

I was looking for several user exits when I can manage this requisite.

My problem is that when the user creates the invoice and push save button, I try to look for in the table STXH if the user created the header text. But I have not found anything, because the invoice has not created yet.

Only when the billing invoice has saved, the header text is stored in the table STXH.

I has been trying to find a structure wich contains the header data like xvbrk contains the data about type of invoice, etc.

I have studied this user exits:

userexit_number_range (module pool saplv60A, program rv60afzz)

userexit_account_prep_komkcv (same module)

userexit_account_prep_kompcv (same module)

userexit_fill_vbrk_vbrp (same module)

v60A0001 (Customer functions in the billing document).

My question is: In which structure is the header text of billing invoice manage before push the save button?

If I knew where it is, I could manage the data and check if the user filled the header text.

Thank you very much, and sorry for my pour English.

Look into internal table XTHEAD during your userexits.

XTHEAD will always have the available text IDs.


If text has been entered, you will see additional values in this internal table for this texts IDs that the user has entered.

If no text has been entered, the other fields in the internal will be initial.

Please reward points for helpful answers.
