Logical Database PNP. HR and Unicode

Hi,

currently we are checking all programs to make them unicode compliant. Using the logical database PNP a lot of macros is loaded automatically. One of them is

rp_provide_from_last (or rp_provide_from_frst) to get the last record in a specifed time-interval. The existance is stated in varaible named pnp-sw-found, it is 0 if no record was found and 1 if there is one in existance.

Checking the program (normal syntach check and extended syntax check) leads to the warning that varaibale names with a hyphen are no longer allowed in unicode programs if its not a structure (and pnp-sw-found is not). The program is doing well, and transaction UCCHECK does not mention this error/warning at all. Has someone experience with that issue and perhaps a solution?

    Hi Rainer,

    It is only a warning message and these macros are used by SAP in most of the HR Reports too. I think you can ignore it as long as the Program works.

    In the program attributes uncheck the 'Unicode Checks Active' flag.

    Also use logical database <b>PNPCE</b> instead...it is the latest and greatest!

    There is one program U need to run that will adjust this program to Unicode compliant. Pls. refer SAP Note for that program. I think U are in 4.7 Ent.. Search for that sap note using search work 'UNICODE' like that.

    Enjoy SAP

    Thanks for the answers so far. Using PNPCE does not resolve my problem, cause we have a lot of own written reports and i just want to avoid to change them all.

    And using PNPCE idoes not solve the problem, that i have to use pnp-sw-found, this one is still in existance and gives still the warning that thois is not unicode compliant.

    Switching off the unicode flag is no good idea if we wanna go for unicode.

    Anyone else with experience in unicode in the HR Area?
