BAPI VB, Column values mismatching in Table Parameter and Database value


I am trying to call a BAPI ZBAPI_EMP_INS_TBL, in which I pass a Table parameter with 2 columns and 2 rows.

The column names are EMPID and DOJ which are of Char (8) and Dats data type.

In my BAPI, I loop through the table which has been passed as a parameter and insert data into the Z-table.

The problem is that my program runs without error and insert data in the corresponding Z-table. But the column values are different in Z-table and the ones passed from VB.

For e.g. If I pass 12345678 as EMPID, In Database the value comes as 45678200.
Similarly for the DOJ field the value comes as “7 - -7112”.

Is there any check or methods to be called while passing a Table parameter?
Because if I call another BAPI to insert single record and the BAPI takes 2 parameters i.e. EMPID and DOJ, the program works fine.

Are there any checks to be made while passing the Table parameter?
Once I call the code from VB, is it possible to debug the code from ABAP side?



  wa_emp type z_emp_dtls,
loop at tbl_emp into wa_emp. "tbl_emp is passed from VB code as a table
insert into z_emp_dtls values wa_emp.
clear wa_emp.
