H Dhina,

please refer to Note 822379 - Known problems with Support Packages in SAP NW 7.0x AS ABAP

Symptom: When importing a queue that contains the Support Package SAPKB70017, errors may occur in phase XPRA_EXECUTION during the after-import-method execution for other Support Packages also in the queue. The relevant AIM logs contain a note regarding the termination of the batch job and the job log for that batch job contains a SYNTAX_ERROR as cause for the termination. The corresponding "SYNTAX_ERROR" contains
  "CONTEXT" addition is not permitted for BAdI
as cause for the error, which can be traced back to an inactive change in the BAdI CLS_CHARACTERIZATION.

Solution: Continue the import. During the first run of XPRA_EXECUTION, the BAdI CLS_CHARACTERIZATION was activated, so that the syntax error no longer occurs during a repeat run.
To prevent this error from the start, import Support Package SAPKB70017 together with Support Package SAPKB70018 in one queue.
