Former Member

I got some errors while doing PA infotypes creation.please help me.

Short text

A table name, specified in an SQL command, is unknown.

What happened?

Error in the ABAP Application Program

The current ABAP program "SAPFP50P" had to be terminated because it has

come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.

What can you do?

Note down which actions and inputs caused the error.

To process the problem further, contact you SAP system


Using Transaction ST22 for ABAP Dump Analysis, you can look

at and manage termination messages, and you can also

keep them for a long time.

Error analysis

An exception occurred that is explained in detail below.

The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_DYNAMIC_OSQL_SEMANTICS', was

not caught in

procedure "READ_DATABASE" "(FORM)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING clause.

Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated that the

exception would occur, the current program is terminated.

The reason for the exception is:

An invalid table name "PA9667" was specified in an Open SQL command:

Due to one of the following reasons, the error occurs only at runtime:

- the table name was specified dynamically, or

- the SELECT clause, WHERE clause, GROUP-BY clause, HAVING clause, or

ORDER-BY clause was specified dynamically.
