In a part of my program i did select statements on required tables including AFVC to retrieve data. There's a problem coming in the middle, I do the select from table AFVC which has field PROJ. When i run debbuger, PROJ value that are retrieved is a 8 character number (ex: 00123456). But the value of PROJN is supposed to be sth like P: 12345 - T - E (which is more than 8 char) , because this is what i actually get for field PROJN when i observe AFVC in se11. Can you please tell me how to get the value P: 12345 - T - E? Thanks.
