Hello Experts,

Ca any one please suggest me some FM (SAP version in 4.6B) for converting String to Xstring..?

I have got the data in w_string in STRING format. The below FM is called in other FM which is created by me. But the requirement is to Export the data in Xstring format.

  • Convert table to to string

CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERT_TABLE_TO_STRING'

EXPORTING

i_tabline_length = '1024'

IMPORTING

e_string = w_string

TABLES

it_table = it_contents.

I will reward points points if helpful.

Hi,

convert string to Xstring you can use the following FM

CALL FUNCTION 'SCMS_STRING_TO_XSTRING'

EXPORTING

text = output " variable type string

IMPORTING

buffer = outputx. " variable type xstring

The following code only works if the unicode validation is switched off:

dataa1(100) type c,

         a2(100) type x,

         s1 type string,     " source

         s2 type xstring.   " target

   s1 = 'My string to convert'.

   a1 = s1.

   FIELD-SYMBOLS: <char_container> TYPE c.

   ASSIGN a2 TO <char_container> CASTING.

  

   <char_container> = a1.

   s2 = a2.

I tried this and it wroked well by me:

Data:

         lv_xstring      TYPE xstring,

         lv_mes_str    TYPE string,

         lv_length       TYPE i,

         lv_conv         TYPE REF TO cl_abap_conv_out_ce.

lv_mess_str = "This should be the message in the string too be converted to XSTRING"

** Call class method to convert data to  compatible xstring

   CLEAR: lv_length, lv_xstring, lv_conv.

   TRY.

       lv_conv = cl_abap_conv_out_ce=>create( ).

     CATCH cx_parameter_invalid_range .

* error handling

     CATCH cx_sy_codepage_converter_init .

* error handling

   ENDTRY.

   TRY.

       CALL METHOD lv_conv->write

         EXPORTING

           n    = -1

           data = lv_mes_str

*         VIEW =

         IMPORTING

           len  = lv_length.

     CATCH cx_sy_codepage_converter_init .

* error handling

     CATCH cx_sy_conversion_codepage .

* error handling

     CATCH cx_parameter_invalid_type .

* error handling

     CATCH cx_parameter_invalid_range .

* error handling

   ENDTRY.

   TRY.

       CALL METHOD lv_conv->get_buffer

         RECEIVING

           buffer = lv_xstring.

     CATCH cx_root.

* error handling

   ENDTRY.
