RE:[sap-log-mm] Variant Article Description

Hi Paul,

I am not using any delimiters on purpose. What SAP does is truncate the full generic description, then adds a comma and then variant characteristic.

For example:
Original generic article desc: BUTTERCUP EGYPTIAN COTTON FACE WASHER
Variant info: YELLOW
SAP auto variant article desc: BUTTERCUP EGYPTIAN COTTON FACE WA,YELLOW (SAP disallows changing this auto description).

The comma that SAP introduces in the automatically generated variant article description causes problems when sent to Excel and the other systems, as they interpret the commas as a delimiter.

I was wondering if instead of the comma, we could specify that SAP uses a hyphen, colon or '>' etc.

When I create article variants in the article master (MM41), SAP assigns the description automatically using the generic article description plus variant info separated by COMMAS. The commas create a problem in downloads to Excel. How can I use another delimiter instead of the comma when SAP creates the variant article description? Thanks!
