SAP Note Number: 953823 says string not supported in FM ??


Hello Friends

I am desperately trying to findout how to send a variable length string from XI and save it in a table.

However, SAP Note Number: 953823 says that STRING is not supported in FM but the work around it suggests is as follows:


The only work around for this is :

To wrap the Function module used in function control with the custom function module,which substitutes the STRING parameter with CHAR datatype.


But the problem is that for CHAR datatype you have to give the field length, the requirement I have is to send a VARIABLE LENGTH data.

Could some one help me in understanding how this can be achieved?

Thanks a lot in advance
