Avoid users can change Short Text of Material Id in Purchase Requisitions


We have a problem with purchase requisitions.

Users create a purchase requisition. In the field material,   type the ID of the Material but then, change the description in Short Text, for example Material 1000 is a Bearing, and the user can change this description for  Nut for example, causing problems and confusion in the following steps.

We want that if the user use Material ID can´t change the Short Text

Thank You  very much

You can control this via tcode OLME. go to Purchase Requisitions and then 'Define Screen Layout at Document Level'.  Select appropriate field selection key (NBB if using standard one), go to basic data, item and maintain required settings.
