Field Symbol System Exception

Former Member

I have assigned some value to the field symbol.

I am getting the following error in Short Dump

error

ABAP runtime errors GETWA_NOT_ASSIGNED

Occurred on 11/10/2005 at 10:20:46

>> Short dump has not been completely stored. It is too big.

Field symbol has not yet been assigned.

IS there any system Exception to catch this exception. I tried following code but it is giving me error.

CATCH SYSTEM-EXCEPTIONS GETWA_NOT_ASSIGNED = 5

<MY CODE>

ENDCATCH.

If sy-subrc eq 5.

endif.

Please let me know if there is any system exception to catch this error.

Hi,

before using the field-symbol you can check if it is assigned

if <fieldsymbol> is assigned.

... do something ...

enddo.

If you are refering to a field-symbols that is not assigned a short dump occurs.

Hi,

can you type in your piece of code where you assigned the values to the field symbol?

This error is when your field symbol is not assigned and you try to access it .

Always check sy-subrc before using the field symbol.

ASSIGN FIELD TO <F1>.

IF SY-SUBRC EQ 0.

FIELD2 = <F1>.

ENDIF.

If for any reason the assign fails and you donot have the sy-subrc check then your statement FIELD2 = <F1> will throw the error.

Cheers.
