Multilingual Characters in Infoobject Master Data

Post by hellasangel » Tue Oct 22, 2002 5:09 am

Hi SAPFans!

I have the following problem with the master data load in BW:

The MM consultants of the R/3 installation have put international characters (Greek) as the key field of Basic Material. This means that when I import the material data into BW 0BASIC_MATL and 0MATERIAL have to be uploaded with this international characterset data in their attributes (not in their texts).

The upload procedure flows OK until the PSA Area, however when I try to load this attribute data into the data target (in this case 0MATERIAL is a data target) the load fails.

I wonder if anybody of you has faced a similar problem with multilingual master data. How did you solve it? R/3 is not live yet, however it will be quite difficult to change the master data for basic material in R/3 to engish characters only, as the client wants them in Greek.

Thanks for your help!

Not sure if this would help (as you did not include the error message)...
Go to customizing > Business Information Warehouse > General BW Settings > Maintain permitted extra characters
Here you can enter "extra" characters (e.g. some greek letters)... I guess that should solve your problems.

Never test it, tell me if that's useful for you.
