Hi,

data : char(10) type c,

num(10) type n.

write num to char. " to convert num to char type..

and use SEPERATED BY SPACE in the concatenate statment to get the space after each field.

thanks

Hi,

The CONCATENATE statement combines two or more separate strings into one.

<b>CONCATENATE <c1> ... <cn> INTO <c> [SEPARATED BY <s>].</b>

This statement concatenates the character fields <c1> to <cn> and assigns the result to <c>. The system ignores spaces at the end of the individual source strings.

The addition SEPARATED BY <s> allows you to specify a character field <s> which is placed in its defined length between the individual fields.

try with this sample code..........

CONCATENATE  it_pa0000-pernr it_pa0105-usrid  it_pa0105-begda INTO record_tab-string  SEPARATED BY SPACE.

Dump all the datatype values into chracter values..

data: char1 type char20,

char2 type char20.

char1 = num1.

char2 = num2.

CONCATENATE char1 char2 SEPERATED by space.
