No Length check on valid values


I just discovered the following:

When I create a user field in the UI or DI with a size of x The system allows me to enter valid values with a size bigger than x. This happens in the UI AND DI, no error or warning is issued.

When I open my form and choose the large valid value, not the description but the valid value, truncated at x characters, is shown.

There is no check whether the valid value is larger than the size of the field.

I have tested it in SBO 2005 SP01 PL31

    Hi Ad,

    Just tested it on patch 22, via the UI, and I get the same issue. It must have been around for a while. Have you logged it with SAP Support?

    Kind Regards,
