Long text Field contains "#####'

433 Views

Hi All,

I have a Z field ( Long text field) in a Standard table and value for this field contains "#####' along with the text ( Example : Hello world ####### ) .We are using this field in a webdynpro application and customer is complaining about these ### values . ABAP statements ( Replace , Find etc ) not able to recognize these values , even we tried form field , line feed etc from ABAP character utility class .

Then we tried to analyze how these long text getting populated in the table , Customer have another webdynpro application where they are uploading a text file ( tab delimited ) to get the long text and calling a BAPI to upload the data in the table . Unfortunately we are not able to get the permission to access this application .

During our internal discussions one point came up as there may be a difference in the code pages and SAP system is not able to recognize some characters and keeping these as ####

Is anybody encountered such problems ? please give your thoughts .

Regards,
