E1: BSFN: Input Values Passed to Business Functions Are Getting Truncated If the Data Structure Member's Data Dictionary Item Size is Greater than 30,000 (Doc ID 2938168.1)

Business functions that utilize input data structures with member data dictionary item size greater than 30,000, do not process the input string correctly as the value of the passed input string gets truncated.

For example , a Custom BSFN (Business function) which is a copy of standard  BSFN B34A1010( Write One Line to Flat file) and which is using a modified data structure so as to use a data dictionary item of size 99999 ( any size greater than 30K)  is writing truncated string rather than the entire passed string of greater than 30K. This truncation is limited to 1695 characters only . As a result,  business function works if the passed string is less than 1695 characters but  truncates the string if the passed string is greater than 1695  characters. Truncated size takes a random value and varies for different data dictionary item size . For example a DD item of size 50000 might cause a truncation to even shorter length.

The size / length to which the passed string gets truncated depends on the LengthInVersData property value of the data structure member which can be viewed in UTB (view local specifications). It is observed that the value of LengthInVersData stores twice the value of DD item's size as long as the DD item size is <=30000. But it starts storing incorrect random value for dd item size greater than 30K. E.g when viewed in UTB the  LengthInVersData will have a value of 3392 for a dd item with size 99K and hence the truncation to (3392/2) -1=1695 characters ( two bytes /character)
