In the Segment master data table the segment data element length is 10. In the Master data table the remaining length of the Segment ID is substituted by adding leading zeros.

The View representation of the Segment ID is done by removing the leading zeros from the master data of Segment ID. This a standard system behavior.


User should not define the Segment ID with leading zeros.
