Hi,

Look this code, you can easily understand what BCD overflow


PARAMETERS fact TYPE i.
DATA: fact_save TYPE i,
res(16) TYPE p.
*** ARITHMETIC_ERRORS contains COMPUTE_BCD_OVERFLOW ***
CATCH SYSTEM-EXCEPTIONS ARITHMETIC_ERRORS = 5.
res = fact_save = fact.
SUBTRACT 1 FROM fact.
DO fact TIMES.
MULTIPLY res BY fact. "<- COMPUTE_BCD_OVERFLOW
SUBTRACT 1 FROM fact.
ENDDO.
ENDCATCH.
IF sy-subrc = 5.
WRITE: / 'Overflow! Factorial of', fact_save,
'can not be calculated.'.
ELSE.
WRITE: / 'Factorial of', fact_save, 'gives', res.
ENDIF.
