Fidel is right, one reason could be the program.

the other reason is a bad Idoc. it may contain non-numeric characters even if numeric values were expected. so, also check the program that created the Idoc in the first place.

anyway, if you area BASIS, this is probably not your problem.

You should review the program, the error CONVT_NO_NUMBER means that a field containing character is being converted into a "number" and that is not possible because not all "characters" are numbers.

Examinig the ABAP dump should give you more information
