Please refer SAP Notes:

1. 518387 FB03:Dump 'DYNPRO_FIELD_CONVERSION' due to negative quantity 20.03.2004

2. 538812 FB03:Dump 'DYNPRO_FIELD_CONVERSION'since neg. paymnt amount 19.08.2002

3. 311366 FB03: DYNPRO_FIELD_CONVERSION due to negative qty 25.05.2001

4. 368355 Negative amount liable for cash discount in table BSEG 21.06.2006

If an ABAPper has done ny modifications in User Exit or BADI of FB03, then its a Technical issue. If a funcitonal consultant has done ny config changes bcz of which transaction dumps, then FC would be able to fix it.

Its difficult to directly differentiate @ responsibility without understanding the entire details.

Best regards,
