We are using CRM 5.0 version with ISA (Internet Sales Application), in ISA front end we have a DTO (design to order) scenario where the user has to enter some description text as to explain the necessity of the design to order that particular product.

This text gets saved to the backend CRM system via the BADI CRM_ISALES_SET_EXTENSIONS.

The issue with arises whenever a quotation or order has the length/volume of the DTO text in the header tab around 6 - 7 pages of notes in it.

In other words it contains 362 lines (more than 255 lines) of data.

Technically SAP has the limitation for the integer field INT1 and it has been exceeded in this case.

So, the function module CRM_ISALES_SET_EXTENSIONS is throwing CX_SY_CONVERSION_OVERFLOW exception.

Usually SAP replaces these type of fields with INT4 to store more data. But, this function module still has the INT1 data element.

It appears to be there is no SAP note for this. Probably SAP may want to limit the text for ISA.

Is there anyone else facing a similar issue ? if yes please contact me via reply to this post and let me know ....

Thanks in advance.
