problem in recognizing '#" in while reading from appl.server
Am reading the file from application server,, the data is stored with tab delimited '#' format.
am used the following code.
data: gc_tab type char value VALUE cl_abap_char_utilities=>horizontal_tab.
read dataset <filename> into lv_string.
split lv_string at gc_tab into v1 v2 v3 .
but the problem is its not even recognizing '#' character in the string.
Pls. suggest me the possibilities ..
thanks in advance
