Problem with EDI ConvertToString


i am working on the 810 using webMethods 6.1. After creating the edi document, to send it to TN, i am converting it to string using wm.b2b.edi:convertToString. whenever there is a string with space between two words ( ex: for product description : this product …) the document being fed to wm.b2b.edi:convertToString service has only one space but the string returned from this service is containing two spaces between words. It was working fine in webMethods6.0.1. but it doesnt in 6.1. did anybody faced this problem. is there any fix for this.

Check in the EDI 810 dictionary/Schema of that particular segment/field properties whether it is defined as 2spaces.If so you can edit the dictionary/Schema (and migrate the same stuff when you move to different environments) or see if any fix available in Advantage website or contact tech support as a last option for fast resolution.

Since convertToString has nothing to do with this as it is structured based on the EDIFFSchema.
