Hi Mates,

when i select IT0008 in PA30 it goes to dump and shows an error

<u>short text</u>

Program error: Offset in WRITE TO in program "SAPFP500" is too la

<u>What happened?</u>

Error in the ABAP Application Program

The current ABAP program "SAPFP500" had to be terminated because

come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.

<u>Error analysis</u>

In a "WRITE src TO dest+off[(len)] [INDEX i]" statement,

"off" contains a target field offset (3) which is larger than

the length of the target field "dest" (4). This is not allowed.

can any one please make me transparent, what has to be done to rectify that.

Did someone add any custom coding to SAPFP500? Or do you have any custom fields added to infotype 0008? Try to find the exact line in the program where this error is happening and see if it is some custom code that needs to be changed. I hope this helps.

Hi Alex,

As per the error, The problem is you are trying to write a filed content of lenght <b>4</b> to a target field, which is capable of holding<b> 3</b> lenght data. it's not possible to hold large data than its capability, So its giving that source field is larger than target field.

For this you have to declare both the source and target fields with same lenght.
