Problem using READ_TEXT function module...

108 Views

Hi,

I am trying to read a standard text using function module READ_TEXT.

In that function module we have a table parameter called lines which fetches the data in it.

DATA: DATA:lt_lines LIKE tline OCCURS 0 WITH HEADER LINE.

CALL FUNCTION 'READ_TEXT'

EXPORTING

id = 'ST'

language = 'EN'

name = 'ZPACKING_SLIP_Description'

object = 'TEXT'

TABLES

lines = lt_lines

EXCEPTIONS

OTHERS = 8.

DATA: T_PACKING_SLIP_Description TYPE CHAR600.

T_PACKING_SLIP = lt_lines-tdline.

<b>But the problem is the data in the standard text is very big around 600 characters hence it gets cut since the tline-tdline character length is just 132 as defined in standard structure tline.</b>

Please tell me how do I handle this issue. I want the whole standard text to get fetched and not just 132 length.
