Does WD take care of R/3 conversion exits?

Does WD take care of R/3 conversion exits or does it expect us to code for it in Java e.g. ALPHA conversion exit - customer number in R/3 is 10 characters long so customer number 123 is internally represented(in the DB) as 0000000123.

Currently on my application, if I do not put in the leading zero's on the screen field, the RFC does not work.

    Hi,

    this is not really a WD issue. The "receiving" system, in this case an ABAP system, has to take care converting the parameters from external to internal representation if necessary. So it's actually the task of the RFC (and a basic design principle of a BAPI, exactly for that reason).

    Hope that helps.

    Regards

    Stefan

      Hi Pran,

      i guess, conversion exits might be more or fully supported in future releases. Looking at the NW 04 documentation it's stated that:

      "Finally, the dictionary helps in converting values from internal to external representation. <b>Currently</b>, both the conversion of currency values and the well-known Alpha-Conversion, heavily used in R/3 applications, are supported."

      Since it's possible to "ask" the ABAP system for conversion exits via ABAP domain metadata (there are also more interesting things like documentations, help values etc.) this would be possible. Let's wait and see..

      Best regards

      Stefan
