Text Editor Error 'CSapEditorCtrl::GetObject: Object 15 does not exist'

After upgrading to GUI 740 I ran into this error when editing text in SO10. Numerous web and SAP notes suggest the re-installing the SAP legacy editor that is no longer part of the SAP GUI but Note 1907484 suggests using report RSCPSETEDITOR to force the setting of MS Word as the default editor. This which solved the issue for me. Also see Note 742662 which mentions using report RSCPINST to do the same thing.

    Hi Niall,

    This can be solved with this note 2221815 - SAPscript Legacy Text Editor controls are not packed in SAP Windows GUI Installation.

    In resume you need to download 'SAPSCRIPT LEGACY TEXT EDITOR' from SAP Software Download Center and install it.

    Best Regards,

    • Thanks Raul,

      I have seen the legacy editor solution but I want to move forward with what the SAP GUI is proposing by omitting it in the original package. The error is caused because the legacy sapedit editor is being referenced. Setting the default editor to MS Word negates the reference and hence the error.
