Workflow template -- container element not passed

I have a custom Workflow template in which one of the container elements (defined as structure BAPIADDR1) is being passed between the Workflow template to a standard task.

Nothing happens, the container element is being filled but isn't passed. Is there a size restriction (255 characters) on container elements. I'm on a 4.6c system. I plan on having someone search OSS for any issues that may be related to this.

Something doesn't seem right. While 4.6c does have a limitation of 255 character length, I would not expect the container element to be empty, just truncated.

Are you sure that the container element is marked as IMPORTING? Perhaps its worth while considering a different approach. Rather than passing in the structure, why not pass in the IDOC BOR object instance and have a method retrieve the relevant segment?
