We're looking at pulling data from a third party tool and SAP HR into BW for reporting purposes. One limitation that we're experiencing is the third party tool has long character strings (greater than 200). Can BW handle this as an input? How are companies getting around this issue? And is BW the right answer for our reporting needs?

sillyITgirL,
It’s a very larg amount of Character. I don’t see this useful for any model. BW usually hadle 60 char / object. What you could do is divide this long object in 4.
The other point is that you could leave this object out of BW and work with regular objects for reporting needs as Date, Client, Person etc…I wonder what person/machine will insert 200 character to look for something??
