Conversion rule to filter special charachters

Hi,

Description of the Issue:

SAP sends DESADV idocs to middleware.

If a text contained in segment E1TXTP8 segment contains some special characters, like " # " the idoc cannot be read at the middleware and remains stuck there.

Question:

Would that be solved by a conversion rule?

How should the conversion rule look like?

Thanks and regards,


F

    Ok, so far, I have been able to set a conversion rule that changes:

    Original text "ABCD ---"

    Outcome from conversion rule "Test"

    That is NO OK.

    I need it to be

    Original text "ABCD ---"

    Outcome from conversion rule "ABCD"

    Bear in mind ABCD is a text that can vary every time, since it was created manually , so I cannot make a 1 to 1 rule.

    Any ideas?

    • Hi Felix,

      For our case we did the substitution on the outbound IDOC from the ECC system.

      What system are you trying to write the rule in, and what tcode/area are you trying to do it in?

      Regards,
