    Check out the subtraction fields, i mean you you must have doing BEGDA - ENDDA, so the value is coming in negative.

Example :-

BEGDA = '20120301'.   " 03/01/2012

ENDDA = '20120416'.   " 04/16/2012

v_diff = ENDDA - BEGDA = 46.     "You must have using BEGDA - ENDDA.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Gourav,

Change your datatype of difference component from int1 to int4. Then, this will work. int1 is short in length for the difference hence the error. So, change it to int4.

Hope this helps.

Sindhu has pointed out correctly

int1 can have max possible intiger is 255. If the differernce between two dates is greater that 255 days the it will overflow. use just  abap default type i or int4 as sindhu suggested.
