    Hi,

    Make sure that source data has in CAPITAL else it will not allow to update from PSA ,

    Alternatively you can write routine or formula for converting lower case to capital

    In transformation rule type select rule type as formula then you can select TOUPPER function in the formula builder then Activate the Transaformation then activate,

    it would work..

    I am Assuming that you know how to write a formula in transformation...

    Double click on datasource, Make check box on for Column "Lower Case" to MPLANT

    Also go through step by step

    Hi Kris,

    Generally this problem will raise because Master data should be in capital other wise DTP will get failure.

    PSA is nothing but raw data which holds data as it maintained in source system. Even if the master data is in lower case DTP can allow but you must check lower case option.

    Another way is select error stack DTP, identify the error and rectify.

    If this clarifies, please reward.
