Former Member

Hi all,

I have a problem when uploading data that is application server [.txt file] into SAP using OPEN DATA SET,READ DATA SET & CLOSE DATA SET it is now going to dump. The file is actually splits the fields by using Tab Delimiter.

During uploading some junk values are coming with '#' so it going to dump and giving follow type of error.

Runtime Errors CONVT_NO_NUMBER

Exception CX_SY_CONVERSION_NO_NUMBER

Unable to interpret "#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#" as a number.

Can any one solve the above issue as i need it urgently.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks & Regards,

Rayeezuddin.

Dear Rayeezuddin,

Dont try take it for grant that tabs and spaces are same and it is constant. Tabs may vary from PC to PC.

You have to use a special Tab Character to delimit your file.

If you are using 4.6 version you can do

data : tab_char type x value '09'.

.....

read the line in a character string.

split <var> at tab_char into var1 var2 var3 var4.

If you are using 4.7 version, you can do

CLASS cl_abap_char_utilities DEFINITION LOAD.

....

read the line in a character string.

split <var> at cl_abap_char_utilities=>horizontal_tab into var1 var2 var3 var4.

I hope this will help .

Please let me know in case of any problem

Regards

Mitesh

Hi Heilman,

Have you got any solution for the problem i posted in this site [Dump during upload of data from application server to SAP].

Thanks,

I have try to re-create you problem with the data that you have provide, I have a # in the first record, but that is it. The internal table is filled correctly. I would suggest making your file comma delimited instead of tab delimited, as it would be easier and cleaner.

Here is my test program.




report zrich_0001.

data: begin of itab occurs 0,

      end of itab.

data: path(100) type c.

path = '/QDLS/ALH/test.txt'.

open dataset path for input in text mode.

do.
  clear xrec.

  read dataset path into xrec.
  if sy-subrc <> 0.
    exit.
  endif.

  split xrec  at ',' into itab-a itab-b itab-c itab-d itab-e itab-f

  append itab.

enddo.

close dataset path.

HI Heilman,

Thank you for that reply.

Because test data is already given to us with Tab delimiter format i might not be able to work with (,)delimiter format.

I know the problem is with Tab Delimiter only and getting #'s in the table lines. but can't we work with Tab delimeter without getting that dump.

Please try to solve my problem with Tab Delimeter file only.

again thank you very much for all your efforts for solving my issue.

If u want entire code for testing please give me your personnel mail ID.

Thanks,

Rayeezuddin.

I don't think that the dump is coming from the actual reading of the file. It is coming because you are trying to move character data to a field that is numeric of some type(N, I, P). This is where you are getting your ABAP dump. The # signs are the tabs in your file. You will need to t split at the # sign instead of comma. The offsets that you are using to move the data into the internal table will not work. You need to split at the #.

Hi Mitesh,

The resolution you have given has worked for me.

We have used following resolution.

If you are using 4.7 version, you can do

Hi,

You need to get the hex code for '#' coming from the file as it is not # char but a control char. When reading file , put a breakpoint at read statement, then check the contents of the line and note the position of #. Then change the display to hex,( there is buttom on the right on filed content fields in debugging mode ). get the hex code for #. Remember that there are 2 char in hex per one char in character format. Get the code and use the code I have written above. just replace 09 in s = '09' with the code you got for '#'. I hope it works for you.

In my system code '09' is working perfectly.
