When try to click on the item description from Expedite Requisitions (navigation eProcurement > Buyer Center > Expedite Requisitions) the system returns error

Assignment of "Deluxe Sports Stove,@ " Double Burner" to PV_ITM_DESCR_WK.DESCR254_MIXED failed. (2,119) PV_ITM_DESCR_WK.DESCR254_MIXED.FieldChange Name:Item_Description PCPC:97493 Statement:1246
Called from:PV_PO_REQ_WRK.PV_GOTO_DESC.FieldChange Statement:7

The assignment to the specified field failed.

The failure can be caused by any one of several problems. The new value could be too long to fit into the field, the new value could have too many digits (possibly including a sign) to the left of the decimal point to fit into the numeric field, there could be problems converting the new value to internal format, the field might not be present in the page buffers (rare), or there could be a memory allocation error (very rare).

Review the program for errors. If necessary, run a PeopleCode trace to determine the program that failed. A trace including "Show Assignments to Variables" will trace the new value.

Due to this issue, users cannot see the ChartField information and other Requisition information.

Steps to Reproduce the Issue:

1. Go to eProcurement > Buyer Center > Expedite Requisitions
2. Click on the <Item Description > link
