ECC6.0 upgrade problem: COPA data interface error

dear community friends:

first ,sorry for my poor written English,Please ask me if you can't understand what I said wholely.

After using the ECC6.0,there is a problem in data interface in COPA module.some fields are enlarged automactically: for example. The field "WERKS" is enlarged to 8 digits while the original is 4 digits.The t_code is "kefd". While you input a sendor structure,you will get all the fields,based on which you will sender a file.In ECC 4.6,The field "WERKS" is 4 digits.But in ECC6.0, It is 8 digits. Cause the recevier's filed is 4 digits,then comes the error.

Abaper found the field structure is read form the system table: INDX.But it is cluster,We can't find the detail data.

who know's the problem?

Thanks

    Well, I believe it is just double the "standard" length for all fields. I have found that that does not affect data upload or quality.

    Incase you have problems, you can consider using Special Coversion Routines... E.g., for the field ARTNR, the system uses preceeding zeros. These can be omitted in your upload file if you use the Special Conversion Routine MATN1.

    In order to find the routine relevant to the field, display the domain in SE11. You should find it in the tab "Definition" (E.g., MATNR --> MATN1).

    All the fields need not have conversion routines. If thats the case ignore it and use the value with the original length (e.g., Company Code - 4 characters). It works - atleast for me.

    Cheers.

    Hello

    According to what you said, I found not all the fields double their length. Just all the fields with "C" character do it.

    Any one knows about that?
