Hi Experts,

I am getting abap dump while saving PO in ME21N plz seee the below dump plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz help me


Date and Time 19.06.2009 11:24:46

Short dump has not been completely stored (too big)

Short text

Field symbol has not yet been assigned.

What happened?

Error in the ABAP Application Program

The current ABAP program "SAPLKKBL" 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

You attempted to access an unassigned field symbol

(data segment 106).

This error may occur if

- You address a typed field symbol before it has been set with


- You address a field symbol that pointed to the line of an

internal table that was deleted

- You address a field symbol that was previously reset using

UNASSIGN or that pointed to a local field that no

longer exists

- You address a global function interface, although the

respective function module is not active - that is, is

not in the list of active calls. The list of active calls

can be taken from this short dump.

How to correct the error

If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to

find an interim solution in an SAP Note.

2. Corresponding system log

Display the system log by calling transaction SM21.

this error occurs when you try to address a field-symbol before it has been assigned to a field or

the assignment has failed.

Use following code to remove this dump

Assign <mara-matnr> to <fs>.
if sy-subrc <> 0.
  Error Message.


Hope it helps,

Since the dump is comming in your standard program; please check the exits in which you are adding new fields to your ME21n screen if there is any problem.
