Function to generate a random ID

Former Member

Hello all,

Do we have any inbuilt function in SAP to generate a random alphanumeric ID?

The requirement is such that there is an import parameter "Sales Rep ID" which is optional. So if the user is not providing the ID, then we have to randomly generate it ourselves. Hence I am looking for a FM which does that job.

Regards,

Abhishek

Thanks a Lot!!1

I will check out these FM's. Right now only issue will be to match the global data types (in case of enterprise service) to the data types of FM's

You can as well use FM : GUID_CREATE.

Hope this helps .
