ALPHA conversion routine in 2004s

Hi everybody!

We are facing a strange situation in our customer, where alpha-conversion routine is missing from info-object 0PROFIT_CTR. We would naturally want to return it. For possible conversion of transaction data, we checked for the transaction RSMDCNVEXIT but it ended up with message "Data conversion functions are no longer supported".

What is the right way to change in 2004s a conversion routine for an info-object in a productive system? Is the only way to empty master data and data targets and load the data again after the change? Or is there a error correction possibility in RSRV?

Thankful for any advice

    Hello Sari

    Once you have loaded data , it is possible now to change alpha conversion....but to get the ALPHA conversion functionality( 0 padding) you can write a routine for this field in transfer rule/update rule...

    Thanks

    Hello Sari,

    exactly the conversation routine can not being changed after you have loaded data. Even with RSRV you are not able to changed this.

    The reason is, that the values '000001000' and ' 1000' are not the same for BI.

    I hope this helps, Michael
