conversion routines for objects

Hai All,

I have an object that get s data from R/3 field thats of the length 160. But BW has only 60 as maximum number. I believe BW loads fail if I make my BW object with length 60 and send data thats 160 characters long. Do I need to have a conversion routine for the object or at the data load level, I mean at the user exit? can I do that? I am getting some time numbers and sometimes alphanumeric data. Also does it matter if it is a generic extraction or db connect? Can I use the same kind of mechanism?

Any information pointers are appreciated and my id is

Thank you.

Hi Visu,

If you send 160 chars to be loaded into 60 chars, then it will take the first 60 chars of the data and dump the rest.

Hope this helps...
