Trying to create 'CSV' files with 'SAP_CONVERT_TO_TEXT_FORMAT'

I am getting a dump when I use the functional call sometimes. Sometimes it works correctly.

              I_FIELD_SEPERATOR    = '|'
              "I_LINE_HEADER        = I_LINE_HEADER
              I_FILENAME           = fname
              I_TAB_SAP_DATA       = <fs_temp_data_standard>
              I_TAB_CONVERTED_DATA = conv_data
              CONVERSION_FAILED    = 1
              OTHERS               = 2.


'In this case, the operand "op1" has the non-character-type "I". The current program is flagged as a Unicode program. In the Unicode context, type X fields are seen as non-character-type, as are structures that contain non-character-type components.'

How do I correct it, or should I build the csv files manually?

I wonder if this is related, I imported a table from memory into a table I made dynamically. This is the data I'm trying to convert. I wonder if a mismatch error were to happen and I ignore it it may cause problems later. When I remove 'IGNORING STRUCTURE BOUNDARIES' the import fails.

 IMPORT sel_tab TO <fs_data> ind_empty TO flag

    I think you'll have to create the CSV manually as Simon suggests. To convert from numeric to character, WRITE is usually a good option. You need to know the types of each field, so that you can know when to use the field value directly, and when they might need converting to character. You can get this through RTTS.

    What's your SAP version, did you search and find a note such as 1855878 - Supplement to SAP_CONVERT_TO_TEX_FORMAT (where 'I' was added)
