    If there is not data for # it should not be displayed.

    Try to activate all zero suppressions, also for structures.

    And what we sometimes did is to create a text for the characteristic even though it was not really necessery because the key is good for end users; but this way you could assign any text to 0 or #.

    It can be done at two levels - one globally affecting all queries in BeX and Web or only for that particular Query..

    For the global option - go to TCode RSCUSTV4 and change it to what you want to be displayed or

    use the table interface to change the contents of the cell..
