File adaptor Content conversion problem

Hi all,
I have a client proxy > pi> CSV file scenario which im working on currently - everything is fine apart from 1 really annoying thing.
The problem is this that when data is extracted from SAP it should put in 6 fields within the file produced e.g:
field1,field2,field3,field4,field5,field6
Which is fine however if one of the fields is blank there should still be the blank space which should appear instead of what it is curently doing which is ignoring the blank and shifting everything else left by 1 so:
if out of 6 fields only 5 come out currently its doing this:
field1,field2,field4,field5,field6      (Notice field3 is missing and there is no blank space in its place)
What it should be doing is this:
field1,field2,,field4,field5,field6       (Notice the blank space)
I have gone through all the content conversion parameters I know for receiver file adaptors none have worked so if you know any which will do this please let me know!!
Also if you know of other ways your ideas will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance

you solution is to alter the mapping in a simple way.
If you are using graphical mapping then use this logic;
Source field -> if EXISTS -> Target
                      else -> Pass an empty constant -> Target
This will make sure an empty tag is created a the target and FCC will work fine.

  • Receiver File Adapter Content Conversion Problem.

    Hi All,
    I am getting in receiver file adapter due to content conversion setting. Problem is that all the fields coming in file adapter are optional. In content conversion , i have specified fieldfixedlengths. So whenever any optional field is not present , it fails . How should we handle it? is there any option to declare fields as optional, I know that is the there for sender adapter. But no. of fields is also very large, so putting each and every field as optional is very time consuming.
    What should i do?
    Ranjeet Singh.

    Hi Daniele,
    Instead of using the standard funciton , i created a UDF for handling this situation.
    My logic is UDF is like
       //write your code here
    int Size = Integer.parseInt(Truncate_Size);
    String Return_Value = "";
         if  (!("".equals(Input)) )
              if  (Input.length() > Size )
                   Return_Value = Input.substring(0,Size);
              else
                   Return_Value = Input.substring(0, Input.length());
         else
              for(int i = 0; i< Size ; i++)
              Return_Value = Return_Value + " " ;
    return Return_Value;
    SO in this case also , it should be able to handle empy source element. But it is not working.

  • File XML Content Conversion: Problem with special characters

    Hello,
    in a file sender cc content conversion is used to transform a flat structure to XML. What we experiencecd is that the message mapping failed due to a character that was not allowed in XML:
    I was assuming that the file content conversion just creates XML messages with allowed characters. Is there any way to configure content conversion to remove control characters which are not allowed in XML? Unfortunately the sender system cannot be modified.
    Thank you.

    Hi Florian,
      Please use this UDF to remove special characters which prevent XML messages to form properly.
    public static String removeSpecialChar(String s)
              try
                   s=s.replaceAll("&","& amp ;");
                   s=s.replaceAll("<"  , "  & lt ;");
                   s=s.replaceAll(">", "& gt ;");
                   s=s.replaceAll("'", "& apos ;");
                   s=s.replaceAll("\"", "& quot ;");
              catch(Exception e)
                   e.printStackTrace();
              return s;
    Please remove spaces between characters within double quotes. I have added them because otherwise you can't see this code properly. Please check this below link , please replace the characters with proper values as the display is causing a problem here

  • Problem in message mapping due to file sender content conversion

    Hi all
    basically i m using file sender content conversion and couldn't make file in a proper nested structure where weight was the nested field of detail as there is a limitation of content conversion in file adapter:
    My file came out like this:
    <header>
    </header>
    <Detail>
    </Detail>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    <Detail>
    </Detail>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    <trailer>
    </trailer>
    and i wanted it like:
    <header>
    </header>
    <Detail>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    </Detail>
    <Detail>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    <Weight>
    </Weight>
    </Detail>
    <trailer>
    </trailer>
    so now the problem is i want to generate an idoc from it....but theres no way out to determine which weight is related to what detail except that the weight related to detail 1 comes after start and end of detail 1 tag and then weights of second detail comes after start and end of detail 2 tag in my source xml file.
    The structure of the target idoc is
    <header>
    </header>
    <Detail>
    <Weight>
    <flag>D1</flag>
    </Weight>
    <Weight>
    <flag>D1</flag>
    </Weight>
    </Detail>
    <Detail>
    <Weight>
    <flag>D2</flag>
    </Weight>
    <Weight>
    <flag>D2</flag>
    </Weight>
    </Detail>
    <trailer>
    </trailer>
    so i was wondering if i can make a user defined function in which i feed detail and weight and result a flag d1/ d2 inside the tag field. My logic is smth like
    while detail is 1 make all the tag weights coming after detail 1 inside <detail1> tag then resultlist.CC for context change  then while detail is 2 make a loop to fill the weight coming after detail 2 inside the <detail2>
    Is this possible by any means. I really need help
    Thnks
    Naina

    Hi
    My sender file content conversion have this setting:
    HEADER,1,DETAIL,*,Weights,*,TRAILER,*
    And plz give me more idea of the adapter module ....is there any blog available which is related to my problem.

  • How to debug file content conversion problems?

    Hi,
    I'm trying to debug a file content conversion problem.  I'm mapping a few nodes in an IDOC to a file of fixed length fields.  I'm using the "<Node A>.fieldFixedLengths", "<Node B>.fieldFixedLengths", "<Node C>.fieldFixedLengths", etc. parameters to specify the fixed length records.
    However, a certain node (for e.g. Node B) is causing a problem and if it is present in the IDOC, the output file does not get created.  Upon checking the XI monitor, I notice that the file gets mapped correctly and thus the problem lies when the file adapter does the file content conversion.  How do I debug this because there is no descriptive error in the XI log?  If this node is not present, the file gets generated fine.
    Thanks,
    Basant Gupta

    Hi,
    If your SXMB_MONI shows, success status, then go to RWB->Message Monitoring->Message display tool and then check Audit log for the analysis,
    So it wil help you debug the situation.
    If there is no error, then check RWB->Component Monitoring->Adapter Monitoring for you file communciation channel..

    > With fixed lengths i get it working,
    >
    > but with de fieldseparator 0X09 it does not work,
    > would you please tell me the complete FCC config not only the fieldSeparation line?
    Well Christian,
    There is one thing, eithere you can use fieldSeparator or fieldFixedLengths you can not use both together. So in your case do not use fieldSeparator.
    The complete FCC is almost same as given in the blog in my previous reply. See the final output in that blog and create your data type accordingly. e.g.
    Recordset
    ------Item 0...unbound
    --------Field1 0..1
    --------Field2 0..1
    --------Field3 0..1
    --------Field8 0..1

    it's fixed length field all the rows with same column.
    090627 344535AFDFG+GBP65433 ASDSSD GFD dFSSGFD 6757532
    090627 344535AFDFG-GBP65433 ASDSSD GFD dFSSGFD 6757532
    090627 344535AFDFG-GBP65433 ASDSSD GFD dFSSGFD 6757532
    090627 344535AFDFG-GBP65433 ASDSSD GFD dFSSGFD 6757532
    090628 344536AFDFG+GBP45434 ASDSSD GFD dFSSGFD 6757532
    090628 344536AFDFG-GBP45434 ASDSSD GFD dFSSGFD 6757532
    **EOF**
    I am sucessfully able to handle the file if i remove "**EOF*" from incoming file. But i get "lastfieldsOptional" error with "*EOF**"
    >
    Parameters-
         Recordset Structure - ROW,*
         Recordsets per message - *
        ROW.fieldFixedLengths - 6,8,20,10,30,1,3,1,11,1,11,6,10,10,20,10,10,2,6,6,2,6,6,3
        ROW.fieldNames - INV_DATE,INV_NO,PAYMENT_REF,CUST_NO,CUST_NAME...etc etc
       ignoreRecordsetName - true
    There are parameters available to ignore Last field(last column) of a Row/Rocerdset
    but how to ignore the last row of the file.
    Plz suggest some parameter to ignore the last row/field of the file.
    Regs,
    Ansh

    Ansh,
    .lastFieldsOptional  is obselete and you cannot use. Please see sap help:
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/2c/181077dd7d6b4ea6a8029b20bf7e55/content.htm
    The best thing comes to my mind is use:
    .keepIncompleteFields as YES
    Also give a try with:
    .missingLastfields as add
    So with this I think your last line in the file will read into XI. But the value of last line is **EOF**. So the length is 9. Since your the first two fixed lengths are 6 and 8. You will have these values as ***EOF and ***. So while mapping you can use doesnot satrt with * and map it, so that your last line will be ignored.
    Note: with this apporach you have to make sure your first two columns never start with *. If you have a doubt then you can use the condition doesnot equal to ***EOF for first field and doesnot equal to *** for the second field when you map. I hope it makes sense to you.

  • File sender content conversion

    hello
    I have a txt file sender content conversion in SAP PI.
    I define in the content conversion 6 fields names(field1, field2, field3,field4,field5,field 6) but the fie that I am loading has only three field(field1,field2,field3). the file is still loading though there is a different in the structure between what I define in the PI to what is loading to the PI.
    is there a way to send an error with out loading the file?
    I read about the count function in the mapping. isnt there a build in function that suppose to load only the structure that is define?
    Thanks
    Kfir

    If you define 6 fields and only 3 are present in the test file then you wont get an error (AFAIK)
    However, if you define 3 fields and there are 6 present in the source file then you will get an error saying more number of parameters found.
    isnt there a build in function that suppose to load only the structure that is define?
    I dont think so....this may however be achieved using a custom adapter module.
    Update:
    Just remembered that SAP PI (7.1 and above) comes with inbuilt XML-validation function....check if that helps in your design.
    Regards,
    Abhishek.

  • Challenge in File Sender Content Conversion

    Hi,
    I have a real challenge concerning File Sender content conversion in SAP XI.
    My flat file looks like this:
    ##H   300
    MAR   206
    KAS 1
    DAT 01.03.08
    ART 1.129
    KUN 118
    EAN 4.499
    REL 5.0j 16.05.06
    SER             1
    ##E   300
    ##H   301
    DAT 01.03.08
    ZEI 07:54
    KAS 1
    ##E   301
    Each row represents a data field and has two values: The first one defines the field name, the second represents the field value. E.g. 'DAT' stands for Date and has the value 01.03.08 in the example.
    The fields belonging together in one data set are enclosed by a start qualiefier (##H)and an end qualifier (##E).
    The value after these qualifiers (i.e. '300' and '301' in the example above) represent a certain record type, e.g. '300' represents Customer data and '301' represents Account Data.
    Is it possible with file content conversion to create the following XML structure:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <ns0:MT_DATA xmlns:ns0="http://sap.com/xi/account">
         <300>
              <MAR>206</MAR>
              <KAS>1</KAS>
              <DAT>01.03.08</DAT>
              <ART>1.129</ART>
              <KUN>118</KUN>
              <EAN>4.499</EAN>
              <REL>5.0j 16.05.06</REL>
              <SER>1</SER>
         </300>
         <301>
              <DAT>01.03.08</DAT>
              <ZEI>07:54</ZEI>     
              <KAS>1</KAS>
         </301>
    </ns0:MT_DATA>
    If it is not possible with content conversion, what could be an alternative? Adapter Module? MultiMapping?
    I'd really appreciate your input as I am working on this since several days without a solution.
    Thanks in advance.
    Alex

    It is not possible thru adapter..
    There is one blog to convert such files to XML sing java mapping. Search for any flat file to Idoc or xml in the forum.

  • FIle Content Conversion Problem in IDOC-XI-File Scenario

    Dear All,
    I am doing IDOC-XI-FILE scenario.
    I am facing one problem related to File Content Coversion.My requirement was to generate a dynamic file like <b>%store_code%_%current_date%_sitemaster.xml</b> , I have completed the dynamic generation successfully .
    Now there is slight change in the requirement ,<b>we have to suppress the current_date node of the xml content</b> . i have tried to suppress the current_date using these <b>DATE.fieldFixedLengths 0 , Date.fixedLengthTooShortHandling Cut</b> , But I am unable to suppress it Can some body provide me the details on this .
    The output xml version generated by Reciever file adapter is as below :
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    - <ns0:MT_SITE_MASTER xmlns:ns0="http://sample-xitest.com/sitemaster">
    - <SITE_DATA>
    <STORE_CODE>N002</STORE_CODE>
    <TITLE_MEDI>Company</TITLE_MEDI>
    <STORE_NAME>Mount Road</STORE_NAME>
    <STREET>Chennai</STREET>
    <COUNTRY>IN</COUNTRY>
    <SALES_TAX_NO>12345678910</SALES_TAX_NO>
    </SITE_DATA>
    </ns0:MT_SITE_MASTER>
    Plz provide me the code I have to write in the file content conversion .
    Thanks in advance
    Regards
    Prabhat

    If u see my earlier reply, I mentioned that u can not suppress the field from the one node.i.e Form SITE_DATA data type u can not suppress the field called CURRENT_DATE.
    My suggestion is that , modify the Data type in such a way that you will be having two nodes as I have mentioned earlier.  Then use the Suppress Logic for the Current Date.
    So it will look like this-
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    - <ns0:MT_SITE_MASTER xmlns:ns0="http://sample-xitest.com/sitemaster">
    - <SITE_DATA>
    <STORE_CODE>N002</STORE_CODE>
    <TITLE_MEDI>Company</TITLE_MEDI>
    <STORE_NAME>Mount Road</STORE_NAME>
    <STREET>Chennai</STREET>
    <COUNTRY>IN</COUNTRY>
    <SALES_TAX_NO>12345678910</SALES_TAX_NO>
    </SITE_DATA>
    <CURR_DATE>
       <CURRENT_DATE>20051105</CURRENT_DATE>
    </CURR_DATE>
    </ns0:MT_SITE_MASTER>
    So ur SITE_DATA is not having a field called CURRENT_DATE. This field is in separate node (segment ) called CURR_DATE. Now u can use the Suppress Logic for the same like this.
    CURR_DATE.fieldFixedLengths - 0
    CURR_DATE.fixedLengthTooShortHanling - Cut
    And in your Variable Substitution you can use the date from the other segment called CURR_DATE.
    Hope this solves ur problem.

  • File adapter:  Receiver File Content Conversion problem.. XML to CSV..!!

    Hi,

    Output File is coming only with lineitem values , remaining fields are not coming.
    *1,2,3*
    FCC Used...

    Header.fieldNames -
    LineItem,SaleNumber,TransNumber,Store,variant,TransType,Adjustm_Type
    Header.fieldSeparator-----   ,
    Header.endSeparator-----    'nl'
    Did I miss anything.. any idea whats going wrong?
    Thanks
    Deepthi

    Hi Deepthi,
    Mention the occurrence of header in Recordset
    You specify like this:
    Recordset: Header, *
    Header.fieldSeparator : u2018Field Separatoru2019
    -->For FCC on Receiver side you donu2019t have to mention the field names.
    -->The u2018endSeparatoru2019 parameter needs to given for substructure only
