Lexicographical setting affects EDI output.


Presently Lexicographical is not set in our system, that results in material numbers with <b>Zeros</b> in the EDI output. The receiving party has a problem in dealing with zeros.

The SAP help says Lexicographical cant be set now because some materials exits in the system.

What are all the options available to address this?

I dun understand, what do u mean by single instance. However what I did is before triggering Idoc, the material master field is trimmed by ABAP program. Then all the leading zeros were trimmed. Let me know if you need more information.
