conversion routines for objects
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?...how 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
