    Hi Gopi Anne,

    a basic concept of SAP is the automatic input/output conversion for screen and list fields. In debugger you will see that actually the data are stored as 1500.00 and 2345564.00. The output conversion according to user settings creates 1,500.00 or 2,345,564.00 in US, in Germany it would be 1.500,00 or 2.345.564,00.

    You will face another problem: Internally the values are stored as packed decimals. For download you will have to move them to char type field.

    The best thing will be to create your download program and learn a lot more...

    Regards,

    Clemens
