Unicode issue for keyword SEARCH


Hi All...

In a report keyword SEARCH is used to find entry in internal table. basically this will find any value in internal table and will return sy-tabix as line number where the value exists.

Syntax: SEARCH itab FOR seek.

where itab is internal table and seek is variable which can contain any value to be searched in itab.

When i set 'Unicode check active' attribute in program attribute, while activating program i am getting error as: <b>Table "KEN3" must have a character line type (data type C, N, D, T, or STRING).</b>

When i try to add additons In byte mode and in charecter mode, i am getting incompability errors.

Is there any solution/alternative for this error. I am trying to make my program unicode compliant.
