Previously, if a user performed a partial search for an item by using a double byte language, no matches were found. Regardless of whether the MLS module is used, this enhancement allows a user to use a double byte language to perform partial or full item description searches. This enhancement resolves an issue with partial searches on screens where the Item Master Lookup (WINIIM) screen is used, such as Material Status Inquiry, INV300D-01, Item Master Selection INV100D1-01, Facility Planning Selection, MRP140D1-01, and Purchasing Inquiry, PUR300D1).
The user selects the F4 prompt from these screens to open the Item Description List. In the prompt window, the user specifies option 10 to perform a partial or full search on an item description.
