E9.2 Description 2 value in UDC attached with drop down

I have a combo box and I have attached a UDC to it by "Set Data Dictionary Overrides". But on the application screen, in the drop down i can only see Description 1 value from the UDC and not Description 2. So, is it possible to show Description 2 value? If yes, How?

Thanks In Advance

When the UDC was created, there are options for code length, whether the 2nd Line is visible, and if it is numeric. If the current UDC was established without the Description 2 visible (e.g. 2nd Line = N), then it would need to be deleted and then added in so this value can be updated to 2nd Line = Y. Of course, you would want to export and current UDC values before deleting/redefining/reloading.

You actually shouldn't need to delete and recreate the values in your UDC. Fast Path to P0004/ZJDE0001, enter the Product Code and User Defined Codes and press Find. Then take the Form Exit "Code Types". Select the row with the desired code type. The next form will allow you to change the Second Line (Y/N) to Y - then click Save. Return to the regular UDC form and click Find - you should see the 2nd description now appearing.

Thanks for you replies @arthart and @Kim Schmidt .
But my question is different. I have given the value of "2nd Line(Y/N)" as "Y" and my "Description 02" is also coming but I have attached this UDC to a combo box by using "Set Data Dictionary Overrides" which made it a drop down and in that drop down, only "Description 01" value is visible and not concatenated value of "Description 01" and "Description 02".

I believe that would be a tools-related enhancement, and I think it would be a great one to have in the product - give the ability for drop-downs to include both Desc 1 and Desc 2.
To create an enhancement, log into https://questoraclecommunity.org and go into a SIG's home page, like the E1 Tech SIG. From there, follow the link to the Enhancement Request Tool, and you can enter the details in there. These are reviewed by the appropriate SIG board and then forwarded on to Oracle for possible inclusion in a future release.

Hi Vidushi,

We usually shorten the Desc 1 to fit 30 chars ( by replacing "and" with & and removing unwanted white spaces).
