Cannot change English Equipment Descriptions in the P1702 if non English User

A 'bug' fix (16329037) was implemented by Oracle with the intention of preventing a non-domestic language user from changing domestic language Equipment Descriptions. Unfortunately, this has not been implemented correctly.

The bug fix was implemented in two places in the code (W1702A Post Dialogue is Initialized) and the OK Button. The first part of the code simply disables the 3 decription fields if the user language is not domestic. The second, OK button, fix seems to grab the current description data from the F1201 and write this back to the F1201 if the users language preference is not domestic.

Effectively this prevents a domestic language user from ever changing an equipment description.

Ideally, when this code fix is corrected, it would be useful to add a new Processing Option to make this type of language checking optional by version. Many clients do not use the F1201D and populate the base F1201 Description fields with all languages.
