Loading long texts (> 60) into BI 7 with Z-tables?

Hello Forum,

I've seen many posts and questions regarding the problem of texts bigger than 60 characters.

Due we can't use the method of various text fields/attributes in one InfoObjekt, we considered using the document option of InfoObjects. Because there are many fields bigger than 60 characters and a lot of records, the number of documents would be huge as they were created by ABAP per character value of each record.

Is there another way or best practice to handle this?

E.g. an Z-table, that contains the whole data, and this table can be used in our web-template with an ABAP function of the customer extension item?

Many thanks and points for any idea.

      Our workaround to display text with more than 60 Characters is to load the texts into an own z-table with some keys as InfoObject .....This is done by ABAP.

      To read the texts we use the Web-Item Customer Extension and the corresponding interface to create a select-statement to get the corresponding texts from the z-table.
