String _to_Solix =>Email send

Hi guys,

I am creating an excel file as attachment with the email,but the values(separators i,e ',and .') tend to change depending on client settings.

SO i need to convert the numbers in excel to string after the file is being created so that the value remains same on all systems.

In excel there is a functionality to add apostrophe'

and then the number converts to a string.

Can we achieve this via ABAP coding?

I tried to concatenate apostrophe' with my rates but it does not work as the value is not converted and the ' appears with the numbers in the excel file.

Example: 1.02125 is noted as '1.02125.

Attaching the code snippet for the above code:

* Variables Declarations

TYPES: BEGIN OF ty_me_mail,

rate_type TYPE kurst_curr,

from_curr TYPE fcurr_curr,

to_currncy TYPE tcurr_curr,

valid_from TYPE gdatu_cur,

from_factor TYPE ffact_curr,

to_factor TYPE tfact_curr,

exch_rate_v TYPE p LENGTH 16 DECIMALS 5,"string,

CONCATENATE 'Rate Type' gc_tab 'From-Currency' gc_tab 'To-Currency'

INTO gv_me_mail.

LOOP AT gt_me_mail INTO gw_me_mail.

gv_str1 = gw_me_mail-rate_type.

gv_str2 = gw_me_mail-from_curr.

gv_str3 = gw_me_mail-to_currncy.

IF NOT gw_me_mail-to_factor IS INITIAL.

iv_string = gv_me_mail

CATCH cx_bcs.

MESSAGE e445(so).



Thanks & Regards in Advance.

    You may also try with a text as a formula: =314159/100000 for getting 3.14159 or 3,14159 depending on client setting.

    • By the way, did you get a chance to have a look at the wiki, it shows that "=15522/100" is displayed (when the CSV file is saved with character encoding UTF-16LE with BOM, and with tab as delimitation character) as "155,22" for French systems, and as "155.22" for English systems.

    Hi Sunil,

    I have not tried any of the below options, it might not work at all but you can give it a try:

    1. Before assigning exchange rate to string variable, do another assignment to a char variable. Then assign character variable to string.

    2. In the character variable, concatenate a space to the exchange rate before assigning to string.

    Hi Sunit,

    I have also faced the same problem, and I have resolved it by converting number in String in ABAP code itself.

    Use Function Module 'HRCM_AMOUNT_TO_STRING_CONVERT' to convert number to string.

    Sample code :



    betrg = ld_number


    string = ld_string.

    Then you can concatenate this ld_string in your final string.

    Hope this helps.😊
