BAPI table extension data types

Former Member

Hi,

I am looking at a BAPI table extension that has two fields that are defined as NUMC.

The fields need to be larger and should contain decimal values.

I see in the documentation that "Customers can use only fields of data type CHAR and similar data types in BAPI table extensions".

Can anybody tell me what the "similar data types" would be for numeric values?

Thanks.

Hi,

I think by, data type CHAR and similar data types, SAP means ACCP, CHAR, CLNT, CUKY, DATS, LANG, LCHR, NUMC, TIMS, UNIT.

To pass decimals fields to the bapi you must use a character field and convert this field to a numeric one in your program, there is no other alternative.

Regards
