A longtext or text is a bit of a special field when projected against a database. Normally, fields have a predefined type and length, text fields however have no length...

which is more than a bit awkward for a database. Hence SAP uses a text pool for all texts in the system, whether they apply to the documentation of a program, or as item text on a Purchase Order. This issue is about the setup of text fields, how to find them, manipulate them and understand the setup.
