exclamatory symbol in the IDOC segment data

Former Member

Hi All,

I have a business requirement where one of the segment data should start with Exclamatory(!) symbol but when I tried to do that in WE19, everything following '!' is getting cleared off when '!' is used as the first character of the data. Can someone help me understand if '!' is restricted to be the first character.? I could find any threads or document related to it. Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you.

sometimes "!" is manage by SAP to make an action. But ! is allowed in EDIFACT

check note OSS 401649, there are somes user-exit to make character replacement
