Non-character-type structure need to be written in ASCI File in Unicode sys

Hi Gurus,

I am trying to write a structure into a ASCI file iapplication server.

My code is as follows.

data : ls_header type BBP_PDS_CTR_HEADER_D ,

lv_filename TYPE rlgrap-filename VALUE '/interface/AEE/IN/kalandi'.



I_OBJECT_ID = '4000000196'


E_HEADER = ls_header.

open dataset lv_filename for output in text mode encoding default .

if sy-subrc = 0.

transfer ls_header to lv_filename.

close dataset lv_filename.


but it ives a dump .

Error is :


only character-type data objects are supported at the argument position


In this case. the operand "f" has the non-character-type


current program is a Unicode program. In the Unicode context, the type

'X' or structures containing not only character-type components are

regarded as non-character-type.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Points will be awared for appropriate Answers.

    I think here ls_header and lv_filename are not compatible to transfer the data.
