Hi,

Since there no split char ; u have to use offset.

lv_data+0(4).-----> Plant

lv_data+4(8)------>Material.

use as above direcly or

lv_plant = lv_data+0(4).

lv_material = lv_data+4(8).

U can store is this into variable or directly access it.

Use offset.

move v_str+0(4) to plant.

move v_str+4(8) to material.

You will have to get the entire thing into variable.

DATA : VAR TYPE STRING.

VAR = 'PPPPMMMMMMMM'.

PLANT = VAR+0(4).

LEN = STRLEN( VAR ).

LEN = LEN - 4.

MATERIAL = VAR+4(LEN).

Ravi

You will have to use the offset method.Since there is no sepeartor here you cannot use the split command.

Store the plant into suppose a variable l_plant and the material into say l_material.Then for your data file

l_plant = l_data+0(4).

l_material = l_data+4(8)
