Copie customer master text
I have a question. My customer has many sold to's. These sold to will be extended to another sales area. I made some LSMW s to copy sales area data from customers of sales area X to sales area Y. After some trouble this works fine.
Now I am facing a problem, There seems to be now way that standard text of the sales area part of the customer can be copied from sales are X to sales are Y. Even when I create a customer (Tr XD01, VD01) with the existing number and reference to that customer of sales area X it doen't copy the text.
The question is now is there a standard way to copy text of a customer from one sales area to another, or do we need to program it?
I have checked several forums but no answer. I know there are function modules to read the data (text is not stored in a table) but I wonder why SAP didn't have a solution for that
Just for the record. I found at least the solution to import text, via LSMW.
Program name /SAPDMC/SAP_LSMW_IMPORT_TEXTS
Program type D Direct input.
You need to define two source structures (High and Low level)
Fields High level
OBJECT, NAME, ID, LANGUAGE
Fields Low level
OBJECT, NAME, ID, LANGUAGE, TAG_COLUMN, LTXT
You need two input files assigned to the source structure as well.
OBJECT = KNVV (for customer)
NAME = when KNVV: customer number with leading zeros (10 char total) + sales org. + distrib. channel + Division. So:
000000100010001000 is text of cust 1000, sales org 1000, DC 10 and Div 00.
ID = Your text ID of the specific text
TAG_COLUMN = *
LTXT = the text to be imported, you can define muliple lines by repeating all the fields
To download existing long text one can create a program around function module READ_TEXT. Fortunately at the end we didn't need to do that. We just needed to upload about a couple of hundred texts.
