How to know or check the type of a field when processing a dynamic table?

Dear all,

When processing a dynamic table i have a short dump because of a convert_of_type incorrect, so i would like to check the type of field-symbol <f> before moving the data (type char) to this field-symbol <f>.

Could you please help me how to check or get the type of field-symbol <f> (because field-symbol <f> is assigned dynamic, so this <f> can be type char, unit, or quantity, ...)?

The source code same as below:


MOVE lv_field TO <f>. (Dump is here when lv_field is char type and <f> is quantity type => could i check the type of <f> if it's char type before using this instruction "MOVE ..."?)

Thanks a lot in advance,

Vinh Vo

    Try to use this way

    WRITE lv_field TO <f>. 

    Instead of

    MOVE lv_field TO <f>.
