Text Symbols in the Process Instruction Assistant


The process instruction assistant supports the use of text symbols as follows:

Exception: Text symbols that refer to control characteristics (such as, PPPI_INPUT_REQUEST) are not supported in the process instruction assistant. Here, the reference to the characteristic may be lost.
You specify the characteristic to which you want to refer and the system uses the information to create the text symbol.
As the system assigns the number for process instruction characteristics only when you exit the PI assistant, you cannot refer to characteristics of the same process instruction.

For more detailed information on the use of text symbols in the process instruction assistant, see the Implementation Guide (IMG) for Process Management and the R/3 Library Master Recipes.
