I am getting a short-dump in screen field conversion

Hi all,

I have following situation :

I have one screen field--->



I have one variable <b>l_dmbtr</b> type MSEG_DMBTR.

If I write this, it is ok.

<b> t_zmmat_doc_item-dmbtr = t_zmmat_doc_item-netpr *

t_zmmat_doc_item-erfmg .

<i>" Rate * Quanty</i></b>

But if I write this, it is giving me a short-dump in screen field type conversion error.

<b> l_dmbtr = t_zmmat_doc_item-netpr * <i>" Rate</i>

t_zmmat_doc_item-erfmg . <i>"Quanty</i>

t_zmmat_doc_item-dmbtr = l_dmbtr.</b>

Where does the problem lies ? I need this l_dmbtr later and to be sent to another screen-field of same type.

Please help.

    If l_dmbtr is of type MSEG-DMBTR you should not have any problem. can you tell us exactly in which line the dump happens.

    alos post the following:

    1. your exact variable declaration for l_dmbtr

    2. your code where you are doing the calculation.

    one possible reason might be:

    you have a negative value, but your screen field isn't prepared for this. Check out, if an edit-mask in attributes of your screen field with '____V' helps (some underlines for numbers and decimal point, V for the sign).
