  • 1.  Extract BOM long text

    Posted 03-15-2024 10:49

    Dear all

    I'm trying to extract long texts from BOMs using the READ_TEXT function module.
    The problem I'm having is that I don't know how to extract multiline text. 
    In my extraction only the first line appears
    Do you have an idea?
    Thank you in advance for your help

    Hi Laurent,

    You need to use line numbers - Text ID  TEXT_LINES-TDID.  Here's an example for Sales Orders.

    Hope it gives you an idea.

    Best Regards,

    Sigrid

    Hi Sigrid

    Thank you for your reply

    Doesn't the TEXT_LINES-TDID field correspond to the TDID fields in table STXH ?

    When I enter line number in this field, I get errors

    Best regards

    Hi Laurent

    You are correct.  That was for Sales Order header text which used that numbering.  

    I have an example with Material Master that has multiple lines of text:

    You would use a loop and have to guess a max number of lines to add D rows.

    The first D gets line one, then line two, etc.  The weird part of this one, usually if you add too many "D" rows, it will show blanks, but as you see above, it repeats the first line again.   So please be aware.

    The same should work for BOM.

    Would suggest you go to the ideas portal and request we handle long text for BOM the way the FM does - where you can enable long text, select the ones you want to work with, and it will download or upload the long text as one string.  

    HTH,

    Sigrid
