SAP note correction 2461289- The Evaluation Depth is greater than Ninety Nine


Hi Guys,

My name is Stuart and I am support engineer with the SAP Product Support team.

I’m writing a series of blog posts from week to week to highlight important SAP Notes that may be of use to you in the areas of Employee Self Service (ESS) and Manager Self Service (MSS).

Today’s post highlights SAP note 2461289 that solves an issue when using Manager Self Services Webdynpro ABAP.

This note introduces new code to ensure the evaluation depth of the hierarchy cannot be more than 99 which prevents the following dump

Laufzeitfehler         BCD_OVERFLOW

Ausnahme              CX_SY_CONVERSION_OVERFLOW

In method                "EXECUTE_SEARCH" "(METHOD)"

In Web-Dynpro-Component   HRMSS_TEAM_HIERARCHY

This dump has so far been reported to occur in the MSS Webdynpro ABAP homepage.

To implement the note you can apply the referenced Support Packages or correction instructions that are attached to the note.
