Data transfer format


Hi All,

I heard that the data for some fields in an Idoc have to be in special format. For instance, the quantity field should be "13 digits, 1 dec. point and 1 sign, left-justified". For example ‘302.35_________’ or ‘302.35-________’" and the MATNR field in the idoc type - WMMBID02 should be "numeric with leading zeros". For instance "000000000012345678".

I am using JCO to create an idoc object with java and then send it to SAP system.

My question is should I convert the data in the exact format mentioned above? or the format is only used in particular circumstance.
