How to convert a character to numc

Hello all

In my target i have a field name X  of NUMC type which is mapped to source field Y of NUMC type.

I need to pass a condition in the transformation rule via routine.

The condition is such:

IF field X has value 01 or 03 or 06

THEN field Y = field X  

     ELSE field Y = A

The problem is that A is a character and how to save A in field Y which is of NUMC type?

Please help me out if anyone know the solution.

Kind regards



Hi Rii zz,

Two Approaches:

Approach 1:

  1. Change field Y data type CHAR from NUMC ( so that can update both numc and char values in Y field)

Approach 2:

  1. Where you updating Y = A, instead of A, you may use unique number like 999 etcc, that indicates that Y = A.

Approach 3:

  1. Where you updating Y = A, create new infobject mark "X".

Thank you,
