Hi All,
We have one material and the description of this material is different across the two plants that we have. How to map this? Please find the example below
Material A - Plant 1: Mobile Phone 1122
Material A - Plant 2: Handy Phone 1122
Now these descriptions we are finding a way to make it uniform across the company by clubbing the descriptions of both the plants. Now when I have to raise the PO / sales order and take a print of that then I'm facing issue it is displaying the text of both the plants in the print outputs which the client is not ok with.
SOLUTION SUGGESTED
In the material master additional data we are planning to use different language keys and give different descriptions so that I can use these descriptions at the time of taking print outputs. i.e. One language key for sales output and one language key for purchase outputs.
Is this ok?? or any other better solutions.
Regards
Manish

Jurgen is correct and I doubt your language solutoin will give you satisfactory results.
The question is what do you want your customers to see?  Forget about the internal material description. It shouldn't matter if internally your people see Handy Phone/Mobile Phone.  Club the descriptions together.
Or.. this would be an amazing concept... ask the client to standardize on one or the other!!!!
What you call it doesn't matter.  It's just another item in the system.  Call it 632933 if you want to.  The employees will get used to it quickly and you won't spend a lot of money to come up with some custom solution.
The important thing is what customers of the client see and what is printed on the paperwork to them.  And that can be easily handled by standard SAP using info records.  Have you looked at them?
What is the business benefit in terms of $$$$$ to keep two separate internal descriptions?  The key here is internal.  You can make all the external descriptions and marketing campagins you want. 
If you want another alternative, you could use material classification, (type 001).  Create two characteristics.  PLANT_1234_MTRL_DESC and PLANT_9876_MTRL_DESC.  Define the respective plant descriptions in the materials classification view.  Modify all your paperwork to pull the appropriate description.  You can search via classification in most material search screens.  You'll still see the same clubbed material descriptions however on line.  I don't like this solution nor do I endorse it.
