field length issue


i have WAD report and a chart in it.In this chart we have dates being displayed on the X axis.i date format is 01/01/2008.

Our requirement is to have the date being displayed as


For that i have written a customer exit variable .we have used a funfction module which passes the input as date and converts it in the required format.

FM input:01012008

FM output:01-jan-2008

i concatenated it to format 01jan2008.

But now whn i run the report it gives me the message that the length of field (ZVDAPRD-my variable name) is short

ZVDAPRD(customer exit) is made on the info obj Z_period which is of 8 length(date type). info object output length 10. reference characteristic 0date.

just to try i did format 01jan2008 to 01jan08,but still it gave me some wrong value like '1ja08" is invalid.

please help me to solve this!

also let me know if any other method to achive this.
