SPAM terminated while SPAM-SAINT updated

Hello All,

I was trying to update SPAM-SAINT but it was terminated in between with short dump



Date and Time 05.12.2014 12:04:30

Short Text

Function module "SPAM_SYNCHRONIZE_PAT03_TEPSIN" not found.

What happened?

The function module "SPAM_SYNCHRONIZE_PAT03_TEPSIN" is called,

but cannot be found in the library.

Error in the ABAP Application Program

The current ABAP program "SAPMSPAM" had to be terminated because it has

come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.

What can you do?

Note down which actions and inputs caused the error.

To process the problem further, contact you SAP system


Using Transaction ST22 for ABAP Dump Analysis, you can look

at and manage termination messages, and you can also

keep them for a long time.

Error analysis

An exception occurred that is explained in detail below.

The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_DYN_CALL_ILLEGAL_FUNC', was

not caught and

therefore caused a runtime error.

The reason for the exception is:


No function module exists with the name "SPAM_SYNCHRONIZE_PAT03_TEPSIN".

All function modules are listed in the Function Library (SE37).


Possible reasons:

a) Wrong name specified. Pay particular attention to

upper/lower case and underscores ("_").


b) Transport error

c) In the case of an enqueue/dequeue module,

the lock object may not have been activated

(ABAP/4 Dictionary).

How to correct the error

Check the last transports to the SAP System.

Is the program "SAPMSPAM" currently being changed?

If an enqueue/dequeue module is involved, is the activation

of the lock object missing in the ABAP/4 Dictionary?

If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to

find an interim solution in an SAP Note.

If you have access to SAP Notes, carry out a search with the following





Function modules with names similar to "SPAM_SYNCHRONIZE_PAT03_TEPSIN":











If you cannot solve the problem yourself and want to send an error

notification to SAP, include the following information:

1. The description of the current problem (short dump)

To save the description, choose "System->List->Save->Local File


2. Corresponding system log

Display the system log by calling transaction SM21.

Restrict the time interval to 10 minutes before and five minutes

after the short dump. Then choose "System->List->Save->Local File


3. If the problem occurs in a problem of your own or a modified SAP

program: The source code of the program

In the editor, choose "Utilities->More


4. Details about the conditions under which the error occurred or which

actions and input led to the error.

Please suggest how i can correct it.. I am not able to run SPAM anymore?

I login with ddic only.

    Hi Mohit

    I think when your are performing the SAPM/SAIT upgrade at the end it will through the dump. once again you can execute the same transaction check the version,it might have updated the new version.

      Hello Experts,

      Issue is resolved now. I completely log off from the system and then imported the stuck SPAM transport manually from stms and it was imported successfully. I run spam and this time it was successfully executed.

      Many thanks for your points.
