Middleware - Material Replication Issue - Health Industry



My client is in the Health Industry Sector and we have SAP ECC 6.0 and we are implementing SAP CRM 7.0 EHP2. We need to down load the master

data into CRM using Middleware. We have been able to download the customer and contacts.


When we download materials - our EAN number looks like this - +D6583276820F and when we download this into CRM we get a Error

as ( In CRM EAN Article Numbers are managed as Global Item Number (GTIN) in a 14 format - Ref SAP NOTE 446659)

How do we handle this and be able to convert our EAN number into an acceptable format in CRM ?

The reason our numbers is in this format is because we follow the HEBIC Code ( Health Industry Bar Code)

Any Help would be highly appreciated.
