Master data error due to ALPHA

hello All,

We have scenario where i have CHAR1 created as CHAR20 which has a text master data to the same and no 'ALPHA' conversion. there is a flag set as compounding

In transaction DSO, we write a routine to assign the key for CHAR1 so that in reports it should be able to read both key and text as CHAR1 is a text MD.

MD looks like

FLAGCHAR10TXTMD
P10041ABC
E10041 - DISREGARDABC - DISREGARD

in the routine

If flag = P, CHAR1 = MAT_ID

(MAT_ID = 10041)

else concatenate MAT_ID 'DISREGARD' into CHAR1 separated by '-'.

now this is throwing error while activation, as CHAR1 is getting value as 00000010041 and 00000010041 - DISREGARD, plus with some changes i even manage to activate but unable to read the text from master data in the reports.

Please suggest how can i get this issue resolved for concatenation, leading zeros and getting the text in reports.

Thanks!
