Read Report - Error ED800 Code is protected

Former Member

we have some Abap Code from a supplier that is protected (with se38 you just get the error ED800).

The error occurs because "read report" results in sy-subrc <> 0.

Reposrc and PROGDIR looks good. SQL-Trace shows the access to Reposrc.

Any Ideas how to see the Abap Code ? The ABAP itself is running fine... Only the includes are protected in that manner..

It seems almost the same protection like used in SAPMSYST.

If that program have selection screen then go to T Code SA38 , enter program name, execute, displays the Selection scree.

Here SYSTEM-> STATUS, display the Tcode and Program, double click on the program, and see whether it allows to see the code or not;

Or If that Program is attached to a Transaction code, then go to SE93, enter that Tcode

and display double click on the program and try to see the code.

Reward if useful.

no chance. There is no t-code.

The main programm itself contains only the include. The include is protected.
