Bus/Financial - SAP / order form
French term or phrase: notion
The general context is a workflow in SAP, and this particular section is dealing with fairly minor changes to an order form.

One of the issues with the current order form centres on "La notion « ANNULE et remplace commande XXXXXXX".

I find it difficult to translate "notion", as its use here does not correspond to any definition in French dictionaries. If I generalised and opted for "text", would I be far out?

I'm pretty sure it's a typo for notation.
