Are idoc fields case sensitive?

Hello, there has been an error during idoc processing. The trading partner field was filled in lowercase and this is bringing me error Message no. FB279 ' Company dp0017 is not defined'. The other idocs had DP0017 filled in and were processed fine.

Any input on this? thx.

Hi Antish,

It actually depends on the value that is stored in the IDOC, if the IDOC has company code in lower case then that is exactly how it will be used in the program for all purpose and no automatic conversion is applied. The below message is thrown in the FM - FI_COMPANY_CHECK This FM will look up the table T880 - If you check the entry in this table will be DP0017 and not dp0017. Hence it is throwing the error message.

If your question is it works fine when i try in SE37 with the FM "FI_COMPANY_CHECK" or if i input "dp0017" in WE19 or in SE11 against T880, then the reason for that is a conversion is applied automatically and it is changed to DP0017.

To answer your question "Are idoc fields case sensitive?", it depends on the context, does it retain the case when it is filled in, yes it does.
