'maxLength' and 'Length' are not working

Hi,

In creation of datatype, in details part we can specify length, maxlength etc. but they do not seem to work.

Consider a case that on the left side of the mapping sheet we have a 12 character field and on the right we have a 6 character field. Now in 'Test' when we pass a 12 character value in the left and 'execute' the right side field is taking whole of 12 characters without truncating it.

Can anyone explain why it is happening so?

Regards,

Sudha

    Hi Sudha,

    the facets you can enter in the datatype editor are not considered by the Mapping Tool at all.

    Some of them (e.g. <i>maxLength</i>) are considered by the ABAP proxy generation.

    Others (e.g. <i>pattern</i>) are currently mere documentation.

    Greetings

    Stephan
