Idoc field length varies in XI and R/3 on its own...any idea??
I am in a File to IDOC interface. I need to pass a freetext(200 chars) from legacy to R/3.
So I have added a 200char long field(char200) in the IDOC, modified data structure in XI with 200 chars etc.
However when the actual IDOC comes to SAP it is only 132 chars long.
SXI_MONITOR also shows it as 200 chars(in the manifest and incoming payload).
I am failing to understand why IDOC is having only 132 chars and not 200. Do you guys have faced a situation like this ??
( As mentioned above I have checked we31, idx2, sxi_monitor and message mapping and everywhere it is 200 chars)
Any help greatly appreciated.
