   Go to SE75 transaction. Select ‘Text Objects and ID’s’ and click on change button. Now, select the object ‘EBANH’ and click on ‘Text ID’s’

   Enter the Text ID and Description and save.

      This is not so much helpful as it seems. You cannot save text in new Text ID using tcodes ME51N, ME52N.

      Does anyone know how to do that?

      Hi,

         Enter the header text id in the name spaces like B02, B03 etc as shown below: (Do not give as Z01 or similar)

          System will save the text.

      Test the same and revert back.

      Regards,

      Is it possible to protect the questions on a template from being edited in header text of the purchase requisition?

      Hi,

        If you need to protect a particular text (ID) from being edited, there is no standard option as of my knowledge. You may go for development to achieve the same. Please check the BAdI: ME_REQ_HEADER_TEXT 

      Regards,

      AKPT

      You can manipulate text in the ABAP code, so any validation can be implemented there. It does not lock text from being edited, but allows for text corrections. You must implement BADI class and method which runs when item is updated: IF_EX_ME_PROCESS_REQ_CUST~PROCESS_ITEM.

      Then IM_ITEM parameter has methods if_longtexts_mm~get_text and if_longtexts_mm~set_text for text manipulations.

      Thank you.  What I need is to auto populate a template with questions on it for them to answer without being able to edit the questions.  I didn't think there was a way to do that because it's free text.  If they can edit the text to answer the questions, then they can edit the questions.  I'll take a look at me_req_header_text.

      Hi AKPT sir,

      Very helpful document. I have two questions

      1. how to make the header text mandatory,

      2. How to fetch this text to any report.

      Regards,

      1. Not possible in standard settings. You need to use user exit or badi.

      2. Have a look into the document Report of Master data's Texts and Purchasing Document's Text for Header and Item Level. Also you can use the FM "READ_TEXT".

      Hi,

         You may use the FM: READ_TEXT to pull the details in the report. In the FM, input the following:

      Text name: PR Number

      Language : Req Language (EN)

      Text ID: Text Id of the header / item text (If its header text, use the id: B01

      Text Object: EBANH

         Execute the FM with these data and get the text from PR.

      Regards,

      AKPT

      It is possible to do this and add additional text types to purchase requisitions but at this time the BAPI code does not support the additional types. That code was not written to allow more than B01 text type.
