Problem with Sales Order update(VA02)

0 Kudos


I have created a sales order. I am changing the same order. I am adding few more items to this order and saving it. When I am saving this order, it says that the order has been saved. and when I am trying to view the same order again using VA02, I am getting a 'SAP office express info' popup saying 'Express document "Update was terminated" received from author "Paddu"'. and the description says 'Update was terminated'.

Error Info... V2 101: Error during update of Table VBAP

Can someone tell me why I am getting this error. and what is this error related to.

and when I again view the order in VA02, the changes I did were not saved. Con someone please tell me the reason for this. Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Hi Paddu,

you get the update error when somethings goes wrong in the update task, this happens after you press save. Going into VA02 again has nothing to do with it. You will get the update error too if you just wait en press enter a couple of times.

Without more info it is hard to tell what the problem is. There should be a dump that could give you a hint at what the problem is. Possible cause can be a user exit that tries to create an entry in a table that already exists.

Good luck,

The error that you get is triggered from a workflow. I think you are using the user exit USEREXIT_SAVE_DOCUMENT to change/add items to the sales order. Instead of usign the above exit write the code in USEREXIT_SAVE_DOCUMENT_PREPARE. Then probably you will not get this error as this is triggered at the time of saving the document where as USEREXIT_SAVE_DOCUMENT is triggered after the database commit.
