Material Short text is getting changed while creating purchase order

Dear SAP Gurus

While creating purchase order my user is accidentally changing the short text of the material code, which is getting copied from material master, now I just want to stop this change in short text field of Purchase order so that correct description(which is maintain in Master Data) can't be changed according to document, i.e. for a specific purchase order document type.


Hello Sir,

The same issue was raised in our scenario also.

The solution is to define screen layouts for purchase orders , document type wise.

Goto document type ( SPRO > IMG > MM > Purchasing > Purchasing Order > Define Document Types )

There you can see all your document types (PO) and corresponding FieldSelections assigned to them.

You need to customize these corresponding FieldSelections entries as per document types coz these entries define the Screen layouts.

For defining screen layouts SPRO > IMG > MM > Purchasing > Purchasing Order > Define Screen Layout at Document Level.

And define new entries here as per your document types and need.

Cheers ,
