  • The first answer would be that one may enter " in a message ZMSG001 (SE91) and it will be correctly displayed if you output it with the statement MESSAGE i001(zmsg).

    So, you're probably doing something special. Please give more details.

    Hi,

    I don't have access to SAP system right now, but I do second Sandra Rossi that it does sound peculiar, I don't recall having this issue.

    But, for the sake of the argument, let's say you have a message class 'myclass' and a message number 001 that you entered into the message text the following string 'these " are not working' ( the char. ' symbolizes the beginning and end of the message and it is not part of it). The output is 'these are not working'.

    Have you tried the following (as I am not in front of the system, some options are just a figment of my imagination):

    • 'these "" are not working'
    • 'these `` are not working' (this I suspect will just give a space value)
    • 'these `"` are not working'
    • 'these & are not working' and then prompt the message with this command: message e001(myclass) with '"'. (also try the other options in the part after the with part ).
    • 'these ' ' are not working'
    • 'these \"" are not working' (All the other options in this format, like, these \'"' are not working' ).
    • All the options above, wrapped in spaces. i.e. 'these ' " ' are not working'
    • Define a text symbol, say text-001 and set to 'these " are not working' (or any of the other options if it doesn't work) and then prompt the message with this command: message text-001 type 'E'.
    • Looked for some SAP note about this issue

    Look in your system at a message like 045 of area 00, what do following code display?

    MESSAGE s045(00) WITH 'TEST' '0001'.
