You can CAST the elements of a CDS view to data elements. The semantic attributes are taken over then. See examples under

Thanks. I tried but no luck.

My Field is AFKO - Pronr . when we display in SE11 it shows the number but in display it shows character because of conversion exit. As suggested i have used the cast operation as follows but no luck:

cast(orderheader.pronr as PS_PSP_PRO )as wbselement,

Still it is showing the numeric output.



What does "in display" mean? What role does SE11 play here? From your description, it is not clear what you want.
