Good morning All,

We have upgraded a BW3.1 system to BI7.0 (NW2004s). Since then a few of the data loadings fail in the system throwing an ASSIGN_TYPE_CONFLICT short dump. The dump arises in a line of standard function module BAPI_ODSO_READ_DATA (we want to load data from ODS's to cubes).

We have raised a message with SAP, their answer was that BAPI_ODSO_READ_DATA was obsolete (as of version NW2004s) and we should use BAPI_ODSO_READ_DATA_UC instead. My questions are:

- In my understanding BAPI_ODSO_READ_DATA_UC is for UNICODE systems, but our upgraded system is not Unicode. Do we have to use the new *_UC

function module in NW2004s regardless of the fact that the system is

Unicode or not?

- Is there an easy and quick way to "switch to" the new function module? As I see in our system, this function module is called by standard SAP program SAPLRSODSO_BAPI so I absolutely have no idea on how to change it to use the new FM.

Thanks in advance,
