FOX and /... namespace


I want to declare a characteristic in FOX called /ABC. The system tells me that "/" is not allowed. But it is the name of the characteristic I have to use.

I tried '/ABC' but it does not work.

Does anyone know a solution for this namespace?

    Hallo Stefan,

    For characteristics (InfoObjects) in customer namespaces, you would use <b>\/</b> (backslash, forwardslash) instead of only <b>\</b>

    For example for the characteristic material in siemens namespace, <b>/SIE/MATERIAL</b> you would declare variables in FOX as follows:

    DATA lv_var TYPE <b>/SIE/MATERIAL</b>.

    Best Regards!
