'/' character problem during BDC load using LSMW

Hi all,

I was using BDC to load data through LSMW for InfoRecords.

I have a problem that whenever i have a telephone field

data as '/6558843' it is inserted as '#'.

But when its like '6558843' then its going fine.

I guess it is taking '/' as nodata character.

Thanks in advance,

Ankur

    That is true. Why are you using this character? It is controlled in this

    • --- BGR00-NODATA

    bgr00-nodata = '/'.

    You can either change this nodata character to something else, or your telephone number to contain something else.

      Hello,

      where can I change the nodate character ?

      In the Fieldmapping area I allways get error messages

      if I want to add a new rule.

      The problem is that I do not see the field bgr00-nodata in the structure.

      thanks for your help

    Yes, it is taking '/' as a nodata character. Any chance that you can remove this from the upload data? Otherwise, maybe you can "fix it" during conversion. You can add ABAP code to your conversion routine, to change the value.

    You can set the empty filed indicator to something other than "/" in BGR00-NODATA.
