Hi all,

I have create in my system test exercise for event "New Cost Center created".

It is have steps:

0. Cost Center created

1. Flow start

2. User decision



2.1.1. Send GOOD e-mail to &_WF_INITIATOR&

2.2.1. Delete Cost Center

2.2.2. Send BAD e-mail to &_WF_INITIATOR&

3. Flow END

So what i have:

All works correct, but the step 2.2.2. does not work. I see the error of flow and e-mail of this step does not sending.

When i delete step 2.2.2., all works correct, but i need send e-mail after this step (NOT confirm e-mail of step 2.2.1.). Send confirm e-mail must be a separate step(2.2.2.)

If i delete step 2.2.1.(delete Cost Center) all work correct and i recive e-mail!!!!

If i run a test(F8) in my model and REJECT decision, all steps works correct!!! Delete, Send e-mail etc....

Can you say me, why after step 2.2.1.(Delete Cost Center), i cannot recive e-mail?

I have errors:

Executing batch work item:

Work item 000000390980: Object SELFITEM method SENDTASKDESCRIPTION cannot be




Method container for work item cannot be created

--> -->

Executing batch work item:

Unable to instantiate object 'COSTCENTER'

Agent for all (WF-BATCH)

Sorry for my English.

Wait for answer and your points wait you too.

I think in the mail you are referring to Cost Center Business Object that has been deleted and has no instance and hence it goes into error. I think you should use standard send mail step instead of method to send mail. Method of your BO will not work as the keyfield has been deleted.

Thank you for answer. It is realy so.

Can you say me, what do you mean about "standard send mail step instead of method to send mail"


I must create an operation at the end and put there my task number. In this task i must create by hand an method to send an e-mail?

Or you know the standart task number to fo this?

Sorry for stupied questions, but from SAP HELP i cannot understand, what i must to do to send the confirm e-mail AFTER DELETE operation, when my BO keyfields was deleted.



How i undestand,

It is not


because SELFITEM was destroyed with KEYS?
