Workflow Item in SWIA


I want to re-assign a workflow item to another user , so I have gone to SWIA but work item has a status of "Started", workflow field is blank and the work item type is "(Sub)workflow".

Why is the workflow field blank? and when I try to forward the item i get the message "WS is not a valid object type for a task."

    An item type WS is the Workflow, which is the top level entity and is not assigned to any user. You need to reassign the TS Task, which is one of the steps in the workflow that has gone to a user.

    If you can't spot which one it is in SWIA, look at the log for the WS entry.

      The arithmetic operation error usually happens when the variable length is smaller than required. Try to debug the method and see the value that is passed to the variable. You need to define the variable of type P with required length .

      If this is VIM open text code issue then contact the vendor.

      DATA: var1(12) TYPE P DECIMALS 2.
