    Well, the 13 refers to the length of the data as stored in the data base. I.e. LFIMG takes up 13 bytes in a record from LIPS.

    The 17 says that when you display the number in output form, the maximum length displayed is 17.

    The 15 is a character field. It is the maximum length of the quantity in output form, that can be put into the segment.

    This does mean that if your quantity in LIPS is above a certain value, it won't fit into the segment.
