Am getting error BM 398: Field overflow. Field: INPUT after posting GR.
I want to know what is the exact reason for this Update termination and if any instructions are provided by SAP regarding this error.
Am trying to post a GR for a PO for quantity - 8.000.000 PC.
Immediately after posting GR, system is supposed to create a TR and redirects to TO creation screen.
but the moment i try to enter TO creation screen the Update termination pop up appears.
Am able to post GR if i reduce the quantity to 800.000 PC (7 digits) .
any notes,links to previous discussion will be helpful.
You should check the dump, it has all related information , it tells you the field in which this happens and even shows you the coding line where it happened, which allows you to see what was actually calculated at that moment.
In general it is just so that a field has a certain length in SAP, even fields that are used internally in a program to take totals and subtotals.
if you can enter 8 digits in a quantity field then this field will certainly not be the field that overflows.
But in a goods receipt SAP computes values, and this is usually Quantity multiplied with price under consideration of price unit and conversions between currencies.
So the figure 8.000.000 PC alone does not help at all for an analysis. You also need to know the price and the price unit and the involved currencies.
And some common sense what 8.000.000 PC will have as value would also help to know whether this value is logical and whether it fits into the value fields.
