HEX to CHAR conversion in ECC 6.0


Hi All,

We have upgraded the client system from 4.6C to ECC 6.0. In one of the program the code was as below:

c_code1(1) TYPE x VALUE '23',

c_code2(1) TYPE x VALUE 'E1'.

i_uml-uml = c_code1.

APPEND i_uml.

i_uml-uml = c_code2.

APPEND i_uml.

LOOP AT i_uml INTO w_char.

SEARCH i_rab_tab FOR w_char.

IF sy-subrc = 0.

MOVE 'X' TO w_found.




Here c_code1 and c_code2 are declared as hex and assigned 23 and E1. These codes are moved to itab i_umi. These valuse are assigned to w_char.

When assigned to w_char, the hex value of 23 is converted to '#' and E1 is converted to 'ä'.

Above logic is working in 4.6 but not working in ECC 6.0. The conversion of HEX to char is not working in 6.0. In ECC 6.0, when hex number 23 is assigned to w_char, it takes value as '2'.

Please suggest me how can I make it work in ECC.

Thanks in advance.
