Conversion Routine

Hello Gurus.

I have the data in the infoobject. But i didnt put "ALPHA" in the converstion routine. there is one transaction code by which i can set the "ALPHA" "RSMDEXITON" . i executed that function. But when i went to see in the obect definition i couldnt see the "alpha".

Q1. After running the RSMDEXITON" will the data already inside the object changes?

Q2. After running the RSMDEXITON" will the data for the future upload be in proper format?

Regards

Srikanth.

    Hi Srikanth,

    I am not sure on that. I guess after running the transaction you would be able to change the conversion routine in the Info-object. RSD1 -> Info-object -> Change the conv rouine to ALPHA.

    Hope this helps.

    Bye

      Hi Dinesh

      I tried to change to Alpha after running the transaction but its allowing me to activate the object. I received the msg stating that i am not allowed to do that as it already contains data.

      Regards

    Hi Srikanth,

    From an old post I recall that it would not cause any problems. You could wait for some more suggestions though.
