Typecasting Variables

Hi,

I want to type cast a variable in ABAP.

I have a variable of type STRING. I want to pass this string to the function module 'STRING_SPLIT_AT_POSITION'. However, this function takes in a type C. How can I convert (or type cast) my STRING to C in ABAP?

Thanks,

Declare a character variable and assign the string to it. I do not remember what is the size limit for a char variable.

vstring type string,

vchar(128) type c.

vcharr = vstring.

If your string is larger, see FM STRING_SPLIT. You may have to call this in a loop until the complete string is processed.

Cheers,

Ramki.
