Alpha Conversion Issue error msg RSAR 196

Hi all,

I am facing problem of Alpha Conversion with infoobject 0CUSTOMER.0CUSTOMER has data type CHAR and length 10 with Alpha Conversion. Source System is R/3 and target system is BW 7.0.There is no any routine in Transfer Rules related to Alpha Conversion.

I am getting below error msg RSAR 196 in Monitor-


The system checked whether the loaded InfoObject value conforms to the conversion exit. The check failed.

For example:

The value '1' was loaded into an InfoObject with alpha exit, even though the value '0000000001' was expected.

System Response

The load process has failed or the erroneous records are displayed in the monitor. This does not depend on how error handling is set up.


Find out why the data does not conform to the conversion exit, and, if

possible, correct the cause. Possible causes are errors in BI Content or

an error in a customer exit in the source system.

If you cannot correct the problem, you have the option of removing the

conversion exit on the InfoObject. However, since the system has already

been converted, duplicates appear in the system again.

Question: how can i identify and solve this discrepancy.

Warm Regards
