Dump in spools generated before Upgrading to ECC6

Former Member
0 Kudos


After upgrading to ECC6, we note that spools (sp01) generated in the previous version (46c) return the following dump: CONVT_NO_NUMBER ("Unable to interpret" 095 # "as a number").

The dump is produced in the function PREPARE_OTF_FOR_GUI_PREVIEWER.

I would like to add that the printing language is Russian.

Anyone knows if there is any program to run in order to fix these spools or any note to apply in order to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance for your help

There is no solution for this issue:

"Unfortunately, there is no general solution for correcting the specifiedproblems AFTER the conversion.

To avoid the problems from the very start, execute one or more of the

following steps PRIOR TO the conversion:

o Printing the requests

o Archiving the ABAP lists

o Downloading the ABAP lists

o Converting the requests to PDF with the RSTXPDFT4 report

o Sending the requests by e-mail


According to our developer's feedback about this issue ,it is not

supported that try to convert an old OTF request that was created

before the Unicode conversion.
