incoming data with more than 60 chars


I have a incoming field with more than 60 chars mapped to an object with type char and length 60. Actually the incoming values are alpha numeric. I want to know if the bw system truncates and takes only first 60 chars or does the load fail?

Also is the behavior same for all kind of loading? I mean flat file, DB connect and SAP extraction?

Thank you.

Hello BI user,

If the field contains more than 60 chars, load should not fail. It will simply take first 60 chars. If your load is failing, there could be some other reason. Please check the log, some common problems while loading through file are special characters and alpha conversion erros.

Hope it helps.
