During the upload of transaction data, we use the function module "API_SEMBPS_GETDATA" to get some reference data. Unfortunately, this function module applies the decimal notation from the user record before returning the data, rather than using SAP's internal format. This leads to short-dumps in the upload process if the user who is executing the upload uses a comma as the decimal separator (which is not unusual in The Netherlands).
So my questions are:
1. Is it intentional that the setting from the user record is applied or could this be a bug?
2. Is there a way of circumventing this, other than using the ABAP statement "translate ',.'" each time we read BPS data?
