error in MAIN_NEWBAS/PARCONV_UPG Conversion process aborted

Upgrade from ERP 5.0 to ERP 6.0 EHP 4 SP5 phase PARCONV_UPG

operating system: iSeries V6R1

SID: AP5

instance number normal: 02

instance number shadow: 09

hostname: ap400c

non-unicode system

Last error code set: DB operations aborted Conversion process aborted,

check with transaction SM37 and SYSLOG and see log file 'PARCONV.ELG'

PARCONV.ELG shows no error (see attachment),

but PARCONV.LOG looks a bit more interesting (last 4 lines):

1 ETQ399 Conversion entries found:

2 ETQ399 CONV ENTRY TBATG TABLS005

0CNVIE20100218DDIC

2 ETQ399 CONV ENTRY TCNV S005 CNVTTI QCMS005

XXXX 20100218173156DDIC

4 ETQ001 START time "No modeflag to check for"

Please have also a look at the end of the files TOOLOUT.LOG and TBATGCHK.LOG:

CONV ENTRY TBATG TABLS005 0CNVIE20100218DDIC

CONV ENTRY TCNV S005 CNVTTI QCMS005

XXXX 20100218173156DDIC

(logfiles can be seen at )

In order to see the joblogs and syslog I opened the system (tp unlocksys+ tp unlock_eu) and found some shortdumps in ST22:

BCD_FIELD_OVERFLOW

Exception CX_SY_CONVERSION_OVERFLOW

A calculation field is defined too small.

So there seems to be a problem with table S005, converting from QCMS005.

In SE14 -> DB Requests -> Terminated I see one entry:

S005 CNV X X X X

In detail it says:

Request "Adjust"

Error in step 5 - see object log and analysis

Analyze adjustment:

steps 1- 4 are fine (4 = Activation of transparent table)

5 - Conversion of data to new table, deletion of renamed table

Initial table: S005

Renamed original table: QCMS005

Tgt. table: S005

Kind regards

The problem is described in SAP note 62182.

The field S005-ARBLA is reduced from DECIMAL 7_2 (ECC 5.0) to DECIMAL 5_2 (ECC 6.0).

But we have 28 data rows in the old table with values for ARBLA greater than 999,99 so the conversion fails.

The temporary table QCM8S005 which should receive the data from (QCM)S005 is built using the (too small) field description.

What am I going to do now?

To continue with the upgrade I have done this:

System needs to be unlocked with the following command and locked again later...

qsh

cd /usr/sap//upg/abap/bin/DEFAULT.TPP

Then press "REPEAT" and the phase will be finished successfully in a couple of minutes.
