unicode problem in interface communion

Our current SAP system is ECC 5.0 non-Unicode.

we are in upgrade project and will upgrade SAP to ECC 6.0 Unicode.

in non-Unicode system, if the length of field is 10 (char), we can only input 5 Chinese character.

in Unicode , we can input 10 Chinese character.

Now we have some interface linked to non-Unicode subsystem (or Big5 DB) . these interface gets data from sap standard table.

in this case, the interface only can receive 5 Chinese character .

Is there any way to control the user to input 5 character like before, not 10 Chinese character.

we don't want to truncate the field directly ? any good idea.

Many thanks!

    Why not check if the data is Unicode data and hence allow only 5 - or change the program so it can take 10 chars. Since here nobody has an idea what kind of "interface" you're talking about (RFC, filesystem, whatever) it's simply impossible to suggest something.
