Info Object activation failing - table is too long (>4096)

Hello All,

We have an master data info object which has 266 Attributes, part of new requirement we are trying to add more attributes but the activation is failing with bellow error message

The error is about the cumulative length of all the attributes present in that master data is greater than 4096. Looks like we have exceeded the limit of adding attributes. Instead of enhancing the IO with all new attributes if we add only handful then it gets activated successfully!

Is there any other possible way to enhance the IO and avoid exceeding this limit without removal of existing attributes?

We are on Release 7.30 (SAPKW73007)

    I think you are running into a hard limit of a SAP-table.

    Only solution i see is starting with a new infoobject BPAR2 were you add these new attributes. You'll have to include this infoobject then in all reporting providers that have BPAR (and fill it with BPAR from the source object)

    Hi Abishek,

    Did you modified the standard table somehow?

    You could reduce the length of the view The standard view/table is not longer as 4096, but this is a standard SAP table (not recommended).

    There is a good way to check directly in the system the size of a view/table, by looking into the definition in the Data Dictionary (transaction SE11). There you can find in the menu "Utilities - Runtime Object - Display" the information for the whole view how many bytes it takes on DB, and also for each field separately.

    Please check attributes of 0BPARTNER also, this should be deleted to make table smaller.

    Check note:

    Best regards, Andras
