We checked the definaton of the InfoObject 0VEND_MAT, find the field Convers. Rout. is null, is that correct? How to resolve the above red error?

hi Kevin,

that's the exact code, check the field that infoobject 0vend_mat assigned, you can check in transfer rules.

and rsa1->infosource->locate your infosource, right click and 'change transfer rules', look 0vend_mat,

and change the update method from 0vend_mat->0vend_mat

to 'routine' and choose field 0vend_mat that mapped to 0vend_mat, and

result = tran_structure-[fieldname for 0vend_mat].

translate result to upper case.

hope this helps.
