Use of Web Intelligence to report on descriptive data from SAP R/3 table



We are using Business Objects Enterprise 4.1 and Web Intelligence as the reporting tool using BICS with datasource as SAP BW 7.4.

There is a requirement to report on SAP R/3 tables with some fields of 255 character length. However, the datasource for Web Intelligence being SAP BW, it can just use the maximum field length of InfoObject in SAP BW that is 60 characters. There is a possibility of leveraging the features by reporting on SAP R/3 using InfoSet. But the questions is whether is there a feature in SAP BW that can be used in Web Intelligence to report on 60 plus character length field that exists in R/3 tables ? Please provide useful tips.
