How to deserialize XML-content to ABAP data fields properly?

When reading the XML content in ABAP internal table fields via XSLT, sometimes the value cannot be read or an exception appears: Error during deserialization.

1. How can I select the right data type for ABAP itab fields, if I now the XML data type?

2. Is there some table for XML to ABAP, where all data type are in detail listed?

    • The formats allowed in ABAP are explained in the ABAP documentation link provided by Horst.

      As your formats seem to be a little bit different, then either you define your internal table with components of type STRING and you'll convert them after the transformation using ABAP code, or you adapt your XSLT to convert them into a valid ABAP format (XPATH substring, XSLT xsl:if, XSLT SAP sap:call-external, etc. - all this stuff is documented)
