Maybe your format Z_FPG haven't been defined in Pre-pod system yet.

To do that, you can follow these steps:

- Call transaction SPAD, choose Full Administration.

- Choose Tab "device type", enter you device type and click "Display" (ex: SAPWIN)

- Click on button "Format", this will list all formats support for this device type.

- Change to Change mode, and click "Create" to add your format Z_FPG to this device type.

Hope this'll help you.

I was also getting the same error message during Transfer order creation in pre-production client. I followed below steps for solving it.

Go to ME23n transaction -> Click on "System" on user menu -> go to "user profile" ->Click on "Own Data" ->Click on "Default" tab -> enter the "Output device"-> save it

Note: you can directly go to this path by transaction: SU3

Note: in output device, you can give"LOCAL" .
