    Hi George,

    it's a very strange question,

    when you run SAP in dialog mode, the memory is used in the computer (look your taskmanager) and there are some process in SAP that use memory too.

    But the process used shared memory ... so ... I don't understand what you really search ?

    Maybe ask your administrator for the memory check of the server.

    • Hi George,

      the maximum limit per process can be set, also the maximum limit for all sessions (per server) together.

      It's something like 10GB total, 40% one.

      4GB is already pretty high for one session, also 1 or 2 GB are 'usual' values for high demands.

      It doesn't make much sense to increase this further - you run out of the total to fast, there is also the physical limit.

      So normal procedure: different process / program design

      - split your report into several variants

      - divide your internal table into header / position -> less redundant data

      - if you loop at table A, add lines of table B -> you get big table C with result - try to avoid creation of table C. Just transfer your result line by line to the output.

      ... depending on your requirement, there are of course other possibilities
