I want to change the type of message of a standard program, but when I type the code to modify the program the text of the program change to gray and I can't change the program.

I hope that the code is correct because I don't look any error message.

What am I doing wrong?

You should not change standard programs. There is a config control available for some of the messages issued in the standard processing. Can you please let us know where you are making this change?

At the line 27 I want to change the message from:

<b>MESSAGE w371.</b>


<b>MESSAGE e371.</b>

Thanks a lot.

That's a change from warning to error, it should be carried out in customizing, not as a mod to a program

The type of this message is static and I can't change the type of message in the customizing.

Yes, this message cannot be controlled through config, but if you are changing the standard program, you should get access key and make the necessary change.

After entering the key The Background of the Abap editor change from light blue to white but the text change to Gray and I can't change the text of the program. The system don't throw to me any error message about wrong object key.
