Hi Karim,

Possibliy these would be and SPAD/SPAU/OSS notes changes assoicated with this object. You could check those.

Hope this helps you.

Hi Thomas,

searched high and low and the SAP notes, but no answer yet. The clue is that GBTD6FI0 is generated by RGUGBR01.

But then I am stuck, I do not want repair the code.

Will appreciate any direction given

Hello Karim

The solution is quite simple. I added a FORM routine with this name to my program an tried to generate. Result: "In Unicode programs the "&" character cannot appear in names, as it does here in the name "VAL_R&D".

Hi Karim,

Program GBTD6FI0 will be genrated by std program RGUGBR00 as a part of FI substitution and validation.

Form Name VAL_R&D is a validation you have created which is a part of customization. Please check in transaction 'OB28' if there is a validation with the name VAL_R&D. If found, please change it so that '&' symbol is not used as it will lead to unicode error.

Cheers,

Vikram
