Hi,

Try the below method:

Goto Screen Painter -> Double click on Input-Output field for ATWRT another screen will appear with attributes of Input Output field -> Increase the Visible length Value there. (Option of visible length is below the Name and Text attribut of Attribute windiw.)

If the Visible length field isn't allowing change then declare it as a Char type instead of taking the DataType for Data Dictionary.

Thanks,

Preyansh

Hi Friend

Instead of manually increase the visible length for the ARWRT field.

U use this.

In se51

goto->secondary windows->Dictionary/Program Fields(F6).

Give the field name ARWRT, and press the get from program button, it would automatically retrieves the values from Dictionary field ARWRT.

Thanks&Regards
