Hi

U need to create two functions for input/output convertions, the fm has to have a name like these:

- CONVERSION_EXIT_xxxxx_INPUT

- CONVERSION_EXIT_xxxxx_OUTPUT

xxxxx is the name of conversion routine

So use trx SE80 to create a function group and SE37 (or SE80) to create the functions.

U can see the fms CONVERSION_EXIT_ALPHA_INPUT

CONVERSION_EXIT_ALPHA_OUTPUT to understand how to create the interface.

Hi,

I have created the two function modules it seems to work when I try to retrieve the values from the database but when I insert a record into a database, say for shipment type on the selection screen the user types 2 but my conversion routine is supposed to convert it to a letter B. However this couldn't work. Am I missing something here?

Thanks.
