if i didn't have a clue as to where this error was occurring, I would start by debugging.

find the name of your Smartform FM, go to SE37 and display it. Do a search for one of your early pieces of code(or something else easily identifiable) & set a breakpoint there.

Step through until you get your error then go fix it.

To find the FM, go to your Smartform & display it.. click Environment -> Function Module Name.

Did you try executing the smartform directly from the SMARTFORMS transaction...usually these are errors because of size issues, which you can capture from the fucntionmodule when you execute the smartform directly.

check the defnitions of templates or tables ...mostly they are the culprits for formatting errors.

To debug : you can declare program lines in the begining of different windows and write hard coded break-point statements and when you run the driver program it will trigger these break points
