Hi All,

In this FM, the internal table can't have string type field. In my case the data is in multiple lines of internal table and I am concatenating into a single field which is of type DESCRIPTIONS(string). I am passing this data to a table in smartform.Only 255 characters are printed, remaining data gets truncated. I am using CONVERT_OTF and SX_TABLE_LINE_WIDTH_CHANGE FMs to create PDF. Is it the limitation or I am incorect here?

Your posting title is misleading; there's nothing wrong with FM READ_TEXT. Yes, it returns a table of type TLINE, as you've noted. Perhaps you could close this post and repost in FORM PRINTING with an appropriate title like: Can't show more than 255 characters of text.....but search first, because you cannot be the first person to encounter this limitation.
