Derive Funded Program from WBS Element

Hello Eli and others,


Need to derive Funded Program from WBS element (entire 24 char) without dropping the dots "." when Project Masking code is on.

Both Funded program and WBS elements are one to one. WBS element number logic is given below






PS module has Project Coding mask.

Created assignment rule with Source as " WBS Element" and Target field as " Measure - Funded Program", the system is not deriving the same. If Project Coding mask is removed then Funded Program is deriving without dropping off the dots "."

Also tried to use the function module " FMDT_CONVERTION_WBS_INT_TO_EXT by using the function module FMDT_READ_MD_WBS_ELEMENT Read WBS Element Master Data by assigning WBS element to USERTEMP1 field and then moving it to Funded Program (MEASURE).

Please suggest, is there any way to derive Funded Program using WBS element without dropping off the separator.

    The mask is just a pattern for GUI; it is not stored in the database. Consider it more like a format that you have in Excel...

    Therefore, if you want to have your funded program with real dots stored, it is not strictly one-to-one. Hence, you would need to put a user-exit in your derivation putting the dots into the value following the same logic as your pattern, should you want to achieve visual equity.

      Thank you Eli for your quick response. Wanted to make sure if there are any standard steps before I take that route.
