Package Size

The extracted data will be split into packages of the defined size. If the package size is 0, SAP uses the default ODP Packaging size. The default package size is 14400000 bytes.

Make sure that your SAP version includes the necessary notes, see Technical Prerequisites.

Adjust Currency Decimals

The default number of decimal places for a currency in the SAP database is 2 decimals. Currencies that do not have decimals are also stored in this format, e.g. JPY, VND, KRW, etc.


Currency Actual Amount Amount stored in SAP database
JPY 100 1.00
KRW 10000 100.00
  • When extracting currencies with no decimals, the amount stored in SAP is returned, e.g., 100 JPY are extracted as 1.00. To correct the decimal placement of the extracted data, activate Adjust Currency Decimals.
  • If Adjust Currency Decimals is active, currencies without decimals are multiplied by a factor that balances out the decimals.
  • Adjust Currency Decimals requires that the corresponding CURRENCY field is included in the extracted object.

Note: The multiplication factor used in Adjust Currency Decimals is determined by the SAP currency table TCURX. To access the table, the following SAP Authority objects must be set in SAP: S_TABU_NAM ACTVT=03; TABLE=TCURX.
